Happy Labor Day!
the OFFICIAL start of QUILTIN SEASON! HA!
And there has been loads of piecing going on this week…lots I couldn’t show you as it is mystery related, but I am so tickled with how everything is coming together.
The way I work though – I never decide on things too soon, they kind of evolve, and I’ve already had to make one change -- switching THIS color for THAT color in a certain area that makes things flow better so I am at a standstill with as far as I can go until I can get home and get into the stash.
That’s okay with me! We are right on schedule! And in about 6 weeks, on Oct 15th, we’ll be releasing those colors and yardage requirements for this year’s Winter Mystery that will start in November! Whoowhooo!
I’ve also gone as far as I can on this…I need setting triangle and border fabrics:
Carolina Chain is now BIG ENOUGH!
I may get as far as sewing rows today and add the setting triangles to the ends of the rows when I get home – but this is as far as it goes with what I can show! This quilt is going in my next book, so I won’t be able to show you the finale until then. Take a good look, commit it to memory – it’s now going OFF radar!
Sadie and I have spent plenty of deck time enjoying the quick rain showers --
And she’s also been found sunning herself when it wasn’t raining.
We call this taking a “Dirt Nap!” LOL!
Another glorious view from Buck Mountain!
Dinner on the Grill!
Last night about 10 of us gathered at Tim & Ambers for a BBQ fest ---oh---these boneless ribs were melt in your mouth fantastic and the chicken was so tender as well – we left after peach cobbler, totally stuffed!
This afternoon we are headed back down the mountain toward home and work will ramp up again. Tuesday I’ve got several boxes of books to be sent to Alaska va Priority Mail for my visit there later in September. Lots of desk work awaits, and I fly to Illinois on Wednesday ---
Thank you for the respite, August! I’m sad to see you go, but excited about new adventures to come!
Love from Buck Mountain ---
