The king sized quilt was on the frame by the end of June. The borders took a long time to finish and then even longer to blanket stitch all those tiny designs I created! With the busy summer and lots of traveling the actual quilting has been slow going. Here is a photo of the giant first being basted and then on the frame.
Lots of traveling included a week in the woods of southern Indiana in June for DH’s hobby interest. Then we did two weeks out west in Boulder, Colorado and the Black Hills of South Dakota in July. We took a couple of grandchildren with us and my oldest granddaughter broke her arm the first day we left! Next we spent ten days in Atlanta, Savannah, Tybee Island, Hilton Head, and Charleston, SC in Aug for a woodworking convention and just R&R for the two of us. And one more week in the woods of southern Indiana in September at which time I did a lot of sewing on baby blankets in our RV! Whew! Fun, but nice to be home.

We had a GREAT family campout while in Boulder, CO.
Since then I have completed 20 baby blankets with teddy bears for my Quilters’ Plus Holiday Boutique coming up November 7 and 8. My heart wanted to do a lot more projects for the Boutique, as some of the money goes to support our group, but alas, I did not do what I had hoped to complete. Oh well, there is always next year.
Some of my blogging buddies have been wondering where I have been. Just busy with life and trying to avoid spending time on the computer fighting with downloading photos, etc. It has been a nice respite. However, I do lurk behind the shadows and visit all of your blogs often.
I hope before too long there will be some stitching and other quilt items to show. But my progress is SLOW.
For now…..Amities, Averyclaire
