The weather is changing over to FALL, and a very welcome site!
Nights are cool and the day temps this week will climb to high 80's but then a steady decrease in temps. This is very helpful for the Cameron Peak Fire, steady decrease in temps. Still little containment on the fire but so much work has been done in the past week. Thank you fire fighters for all your work!
Knitting: not much done in the last week, quilting has taken center stage.
I have several quilts that are close to being done and really need to focus my attention on these quilts and get them completed. I set up my big quilting frame and loaded the Amish Quilt on, this quilt has been in the hand quilting stage for years and only the borders are left. I had forgotten how much easier it is to hand quilt on this frame. Nothing to gather, its all right there, ready to sit down to for a few stitches or an hour of stitching. This quilt will be finished by Christmas this year, (I hope).
I have started the BOM quilt designed by DiFord, Sutton Grange, who sadly passed away late spring of 2020.
The fabrics sing to my heart, a mix of appliqué and machine piecing with an overload of color and prints. A year long BOM quilt, perfect for COVID isolation going into the fall and continuing through 2021.
Not a book read or started the past week, but plenty of books stacking up on my table to be read.
The weekend was a mixture of calmness, quilting, and movie watching.
Saying goodbye to late Summer and hello to early Fall.
