Saturday, Sydney’s choir went to a local retirement home to sing and visit and after that, they took a bus/boat tour of the lake downtown.
For the singing part, they needed to dress casual/nice. She pulled it off and even got to wear a pair of summer heels. First time. She’s growing up. It’s so fun to watch.
I spent several hours marking and then quilting on the silk quilt. That’s definitely one that has to wait for inspiration, but when I get it, it comes all in a rush.
You might have to click this picture to see where I added the feathers above and below the oval with the picture of the house in it.
Here’s a close up, including some of the background work.
And, Barbara Brackman released the next Civil War quilt block. This one was hard.
It’s the one on bottom. It has a lot of set in triangles and I haven’t done much of that. But, once I remembered to mark everything with a ruler and then sew along the marked lines and drop pins in to match the points, it got better and went faster.
I need to start piecing my sashing so I can be ready. She offered a really complex pieced sashing that I’m thinking of using to join the blocks. It would be nice if it was done when the blocks are.
And, I spent some relaxing time in the garden.
This is a really cool triangular shaped bud on a daylily. This is the second one of these that’s opened. This one might be called Alabama.
These next two are orange, but different.
The top one might be Yabba Dabba Doo and the other is a common orange called Ditch Orange.
I hope everyone had a great weekend. Tomorrow, it’s off to Cleveland.
Be well. Lane
