Summer is moving right along here at Chez Nana.
The Ts’ summer swim team had their awards banquet Sunday evening. T#1 finished with the second highest point total overall, just 4 points behind the #1 point getter. He also won the Hard Work Award, for going above and beyond during practices and at meets. I’m so proud of all of them.
Our garden is still producing nicely, even though it’s not been quite hot enough this summer for the tomatoes to take off like we expected. Considering that we have 10 tomato plants, maybe it’s just as well. Remember the big tomato we picked last week? We picked another … even bigger!
I’m continuing to make progress on DD’s chevron quilt. I’m very close to having the border and outer blocks of 3 of the 4 sides finished. I expect to get the quilting done by the end of the week … then I just need to bind it.
I had really wanted to quilt something more than just straight lines on the border, and DD agreed, asking for something geometric/angular. I just couldn’t find any stencils that would fit the border.
Today we’re getting the storage system installed in the closet in the sewing room. It took me a couple of hours to empty the closet. I can’t even imagine how long it will take me to get it filled back up, considering that I didn’t even touch much of my fabric yesterday (since the majority of it is in large vinyl tubs).
I saw a school bus head past our house this morning … the local schools must be in session. Seems like schools start earlier every year.
Have a terrific Tuesday!
