One of Those Weeks and Something New

SOMETHING NEW

We’ve added a new page to our site.  It’s called “What We Found.”  When we take a break and mess around on the internet, we sometimes find some really cool things that we can share.  AQS has planning pages on its website that can be shared on sites like ours.  The September one is already on our Something New page which will go up as soon as possible.  Until then, try this:

2018 AQS Creative Organizer: September

 

Ever have one of those weeks?  Sweet Husband’s car battery died, as did his (still under warranty) printer, not to mention the sprinklers that wouldn’t turn off.  The last thing was just too weird.  I unplugged the system and the water just kept coming.  SH finally turned off the valve to the whole sprinkler system.  Now my sewing machine is making a really horrible noise, but just sometimes.  (Insert a giant sigh here.)  Some weeks are just like that.

Our neighborhood is very quiet this afternoon as school started her a couple of days ago.  After a record-setting string of days in the 90’s, it’s a fall-like 65 today and the wild fire smoke has pretty much cleared out.  Summer went by so fast, I feel like I missed half of it.  Fall is often really beautiful here and I love the colors.  AND I have more time for quilting.

I’m currently quilting this one:

With the exception of the flowers, which I quilted from the front, I’m quilting from the “wrong” side, using the backing as a pattern.  This method works well (with the right backing) and allows my mind to wander off to new projects I want to start.  The original pattern is called “Autumn Sunset” and has been updated to include “Summer Sunrise.”

I need more minutes to do all the things that are in my head, not to mention the UFO pile.  There is just so much to learn and try, and so much fabric to do it with.

At this time of year, the local and regional produce is wonderful.  Yesterday, Barb and I peeled, sliced and froze a whole bunch of peaches.  We put a little sugar and Fruit Fresh on them and then bag ’em up and freeze ’em.  Come December and January, the taste of fresh peaches is just fabulous.  The only thing left to can this year is salsa.  Sweet Husband really likes it so we try to make enough for the whole year.  Oh, and apple sauce.  Guess I’m not as nearly finished as I thought.

With Labor Day weekend coming up, we want to wish you a safe and fun holiday!

Keep quilting for fun!
