Another weekend has just flown by … time flies when we’re having fun, right?
Actually, it was a good weekend … a good bit of it was spent in the sewing room. I used Friday to “play with” the construction of my storm at sea blocks and by lunch time, I had figured out a way to construct my blocks and end up with blocks that I’m pleased with. Are they all perfect? No. But they’re certainly very acceptable. Of the three blocks that I was ready to pitch Thursday, I am able to salvage two of them. By the time I left the sewing room late Sunday afternoon, I had constructed 75 of the 80 blocks. All that’s left before sewing this into a top is to finish those last 5 blocks and to tweak a couple of the blocks I did as I was “learning” how to piece together these blocks. There is light at the end of the tunnel!
Sunday after church, we decided to do some shopping for new deck furniture. We have a patio table and chairs that’s at least 10 years old, and I would prefer to have a conversation set out on our new deck. As we left church, I told DH that I feared that we were just not going to be able to find anything we’d like, figuring that it was too late in the outdoor furniture season. Our first stop was Home Depot, and their extremely limited selection certainly gave us reason to believe that I was right. Our next stop was Lowe’s … where we found just the set I wanted! It’s beautiful, it’s comfortable … and best of all, I don’t do an Edith Ann impersonation when I sit on it! (I’m not very tall to begin with … and since I’m long-waisted, that means that I’m short-legged.)
We got 2 chairs, loveseat and low table. Unfortunately the markdown of their summer stock hadn’t extended to this set, but we were so thrilled at finding what we wanted locally that it didn’t matter. I can’t wait to sit out on our new deck … but first things first: gotta get the deck finished up and then the furniture put together.
The warm weather is returning … we broke down and turned back on the A/C … it was 85 inside … I like it warm but that’s just a little too warm even for me.
Hope you all have a marvelous Monday!
