This was a busy week, but not as busy as it could have been. Community Service workday was cancelled at my house, due to basting day being cancelled next month, due to guild meeting being moved up next month to basting day, due to our quilt camp at the end of the month in September at Zephyr Cove in Lake Tahoe.
Tuesday night I went with my daughters' friends, and my granddaughter Kyleigh to celebrate daughter Katie's birthday. We had a really nice dinner at Yard House. We always get pictures afterwards.
This week, since I had some free time, I worked on finishing up the Sunbonnet Sue top. The Sunbonnet Sue pieces had been prepared by a recently deceased member of our guild. Her daughter donated some of her UFO's to our guild. I sewed the Sunbonnet Sues onto the background by machine. I have it loaded up on my longarm to quilt. My plan is to have it done by this coming Wednesday as we are having a guild workday from 9-2. If I get it done by Wednesday I can give it to one of the ladies that loves to bind quilts at the workday. I don't mind doing the binding myself, but I have plenty of other things to work on for community service.
I have also continued working on the #100hexies#100days2023 on Instagram. These are what I have done so far. This next week the theme is paws, not sure I have 7 days worth, but will give it a try.
Saturday was National Dog Day, and I thought I would show my family's dogs. Maple is the newest member, she is my granddaughter and her boyfriend's dog. She is the sweetest dog I have ever seen. Kyleigh and Maple came and spent a couple of hours with me on Thursday, and we took a nice walk around the park.

This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another. If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.
