Our cabin is about 500+ miles from our house in California and it takes 8+ hrs to make the drive (that's with one QUICK potty/gas stop only). My dh loves to drive so it gives me an opportunity to work on my handwork during the trips.
I've finished many small projects over the years. Recently I've been working on the Primitive Gatherings Summer Block of the Month (from 2018!!) and am enjoying it immensely, even though it took me almost a year to get started.
I'm almost done with the second block!
The red is much more burgundy than it shows in the picture.
I've prepared the next block for the next drive back up to the cabin, which will be tomorrow! Yes, it's a round trip in just 5 days... we had to return the grandkids to SF because they started school today; we are going back for the next few weeks because I LOVE being there for Labor Day (the weather always has a dramatic change and you can feel it in the air!); we also have some friends coming to visit.
On another topic, we love our cabin and we had a phenomenal builder. I ran into him a couple of weeks ago and he told me that his wife was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and has to undergo the usual chemo, radiation and surgery. Immediately I told him I'd send off a quilt to her. So when I got back to California, I finished up this quilt, which had been waiting to be sent to a needy person and it's on its way to her now.
I think I need to make smaller quilts which would function as a lap quilt! Know what I mean? Maybe these large quilts are over-rated!! ;-)
This was a jelly-roll type quilt that I made using left-over scraps from a much smaller project.
I still am needing to do my Pam Buda monthly project for August AND my August mini... my favorite "task-master" will be wondering what's taking so long!!! (just kidding, Wendy Reed!! You know I love you!! You keep me on task!!)
