Last week was unusually busy and sewing activities were at a minimum. Our oldest grandson,
, was with us and we enjoyed playing tourist with him. We visited the LBJ childhood home and ranch and on Tuesday Bob took him to the Charleston Nimitz Museum in . Thursday Bob and Fredericksburg went to the ranch to fetch and clean up the boat for a lake outing on Saturday. His mom and younger brother joined us on Friday, so the sewing room went from something resembling this (no it’s not usually anywhere near this tidy) … Charleston
I managed a few stolen minutes, though, and my hour glass quilt, which I am told is a broken dishes pattern, is now a flimsy. Once I prewash the backing fabric it will be ready for the frame the next time I’m at the ranch.
It would have been more correct chronologically to make this post yesterday. I chose to delay it, however, so that it would be my 100th blog post. Coincidentally, my first post approximately 11 months ago was about this very project. Good thing I wasn’t under any kind of deadline pressure to finish it.
During the visit we had a temporary addition to our doggie pack. Sparky is the cute pooch on the right.
It looks like everyone is struggling with the heat this summer...stay cool and keep quilting!
