But Tuesday was another fairly busy day – although I did get to spend some time in the sewing room. I have all four sides of the inner border sewn on and two of the four sides of the outer border are on. I had hoped to get the final two sides on so I could take a picture, but you all will have to wait to see the top with the borders.
Today looks to be like another busy day, but I’m hoping to have enough time to get into the sewing room to get on the last of the outer border. I need to get the batting out and spread out so the wrinkles will loosen up and to cut the backing to fit. I’d like to have it sandwiched together by the week’s end, but we’ll have to see … I may have to make another trip out to my dad’s tomorrow, and there’s another swim meet this weekend (Friday – Sunday). Even after I get it sandwiched, I may not have much time to do any quilting, as next week I’ll need to be working on my guild’s newsletter and to be cutting fabric for my retreat.
There’s still an awful lot of green in this neck of the woods, but there is some fall color popping up here and there … including our back yard. You’re just going to have to trust me that it’s a more vivid red in real life.
And this is what Lois and I were treated to as we started out on our walk this morningDo you see the second rainbow to the left of the first rainbow? This is the first time I can recall ever having seen a rainbow (let alone a double rainbow) when it didn’t rain.
That last bit of border isn’t going to sew itself on … I’d best get to it. I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
