The days are shorter already and nights longer. Temps are cooling slightly. I made pumpkin spice muffins and Friday Night high school football is in full swing. See that gorgeous Maple leaf quilt in the bleachers? I have been watching college football on Saturdays in between my chores and quilting. AND this year I have a Fantasy football team that is public as well as one with some of my family. Sooo much fun. I am playing my husband this week. We aren’t competitive or anything. So far, I am losing terribly.
Work has been weird. I am so glad I have creative endeavors to balance it all out! The Zentangle drawings have helped me survive several long all day meetings and trainings. I am hoping during this time of great change that it will all work out that I don’t have to commute to another office 2 days a week. Overall, I am not going all over like I was in the summer to cover other offices because they hired staff so I am able to have a life again. It has been worse.
The blue and yellow quilt is on the long arm frame and made by a Quilter in my quilt group. The fox is going to be a little taggie blanket for a expected grandbaby in a couple of weeks. This is the fabrics that will be the outer borders. I am sewing different textured tags in between the red and white borders. It will be backed with minkee. I have enough white minkee to bind it too. It is a texure “lovie” type of quilt for a newborn.
It’s nice to be home for the weekend. We have the last Highland games next weekend and then the season is over. I expect starting in November I will be home and long arming tons for the holidays. The cooler weather reminds everyone to get their quilts done for gifts.
Jealous of your cool fall weather! Still waiting on that here (not that I complain about the weather …).
I will be wailing in Feb over the snow and cold but I didn’t like living in a couple of hot weather states. I am thinking I need to be a snowbird when I retire, lol.
