It's been another busy week for me. I spent 2 days last week helping paint at my daughter Kristen's house. Granddaughter Kyleigh moved out several months ago, and they are making her former bedroom into SIL Jeff's office. So we were painting a linen color over turquoise, and it required two coats, even though it had primer in it. This Sunday we are painting the ceiling, and I am working on baseboards.
Wednesday was our guild meeting, in a new location. We had to arrive an hour early this time to figure out where we were setting up our various tables. At our old location, we had someone set up tables for our different specialties. At this new location, we had to take our own tables. Since I have tables at my home now for the workday at my house, I took two tables for our Community Service. This guild meeting seemed to go on forever, mainly because our guild's quilt show is next month and we were trying to get volunteers for various activities.
That night was dinner at my granddaughter's place for her boyfriend Drew. I could hardly wait for him to open gifts. He was thrilled.
The rest of this week I have been working on my Green Apples project. I wasn't sure I was going to be able to finish at least the top, but I was able to complete the top by Saturday afternoon. It won't be quilted, but the top is done.
I've been thinking about some things in the garage, namely some sails for a 27 foot sailboat my husband John built back in around 1987. I was trying to find someplace I could maybe recycle them. John built 7 boats total. I knew he got his plans from a placed called Glen-L Marine. I looked up the name of the boat, Chessie Flyer on Glen L Marine, and discovered 3 pictures of us, and our sailboat on the website. I know John sent them pictures but didn't realize they were online.
It brought back lots of good memories sailing. We used to take this sailboat all over Northern California.
We have had storm after storm recently. This week we had 3 sunny days, and I got outside for a few hours Saturday. I have tons, and tons, and tons of weeds, and got rid of a few of them, and sprayed weed killer where they are coming out of the bark I just had placed. Some of my plants are blooming.
My brick pathway is growing moss, and there are weeds 6 inches tall coming up out of the cracks.
This week I had a chance to finish this stitchery by Bird Brain Designs.
This week for Slow Sunday Stitching I will be working on my sunflower quilt. It has been sitting in the corner for a couple of months.
I'll be linking up for Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy's Quilts. Check out what everyone has been up to.
Thanks for stopping by!
