Working, But Not Much Progress to Show

This has been a laid-back week and I’ve been working consistently on two projects.  Unfortunately, neither is at a stage that lends itself to pictures, and that makes maintaining blog activity difficult. The pace of life will definitely pick up next week, so I’ve really enjoyed my unexpected staycation.

Last night I pulled some pieced hexagons off the design wall and began stitching them together while I watched Bonnie Hunter’s Quilt-Cam

I had actually hoped to be doing the binding on this small project, but did not get the quilting finished in time.

Tomorrow I’m joining some quilting friends for a day’s outing to visit a quilt guild meeting in San Antonio.  I’m pretty sure there will also be another stop at a brick and mortar quilt store before we come home as well as a calorie loaded lunch along the way. 

The recent floods to our north and west have made a positive impact on Lake Buchanan, which had received very little benefit from the previous rains. Today the Lower Colorado River Authority reported that it is 54% full, a tremendous improvement over where it stood this time last year. This is significant because it is at the top of our lake chain and the one that ultimately provides our household water.
