What I Did This summer!



 I really love how calming handwork can be.

 This quilt is based on a very old pattern called Joseph's Coat. It can be sewn on the machine, but curves are so easy by hand! (Sugarplum thinks I am making it just for her!)

I am also working on an ongoing year-long project. It's a "temperature quilt" and each square is based on the high and low temperature of each day of the year. I am really behind on it! You can find out more about temperature quilts by "googling" it. I was unable to find where the idea started, so I can't give credit to the first person who made one. It's really fun, though!


Wow! What a summer!
My husband and I have been traveling most of the summer.
We started a little early with a cruise to Nova Scotia. 


We went directly from the cruise ship to a flight to Niagara Falls. We stayed several days on the Canadian side of the falls.
We returned for just a few weeks, then headed west on a 3 week, 5,000 mile road trip! 

We returned home the first of August and hit the ground running - family visits, doctor appointments, vet appointments, then 5 days of out of town company. We enjoyed it all, but we're pretty worn out.



Sugarplum and the deer have kept a close eye on us since we've returned. I think they missed us!
