Our weather has changed and while we had a very hot day on Thursday, the temperatures changed rapidly. It is much cooler and wet. I am holding off on turning on the furnace but have been doing some baking and oven meals this weekend. The oven warms up the kitchen a little and takes the dampness out of the air. I haven't put away my shorts and tank tops yet because with September weather, you never know if I might wear them again.
I was fairly productive in my sewing studio but the big job was to do a major clean up including dusting and vacuuming. I work better in a clean and tidy area and really do function better with a "place for everything and everything in its place".
I worked on my September Rainbow scrap challenge blocks and the strip pieced, 16 patch stars, friendship stars and rail fences are done.
I made bindings and layered my preemie quilts and hope to get them quilted this week. I usually do some pretty simple straight line, stitch in the ditch type of quilting so not too challenging.
The blocks I started working with last week got finished while listening to a book on tape. I have finished the Bridgerton series and listening while sewing is a great plan. Thank you to all who suggested it. The top has gone to the long arm quilter who returned the hug block quilt for her to finish for me.
In the meantime, have also watched and been impressed with our Canadian players at the U.S. Open this past two weeks. WOW! Lots of cheering happening in this house. We continue to play tennis every weekend day morning that the courts are dry.
Life is good!
