Still Quilting

Just in case any one was hasn't been all vacation.

Check out this sweet red and white quilt.  I loved working on the colour combo this time of year...I get patriotic (smile)

One can see the seams shining through like stained glass in this view...  it is hanging outside on a beautiful day. Not the best time to photograph a quilt, but an opportunity is just that, never know when the next one will arrive.

Janet's Red & White
I had some (small) issues quilting the red paisley portion, as it happens,  a painted fabric, this style of fabric just messes with the tension, lots of cleaning the bobbin race.  I was asked to do one of my favourite designs in the large solid border...and some meandering things in the rest. 
 I enjoyed working on this, even so...or is that even sew.

I have been at the 'lake' three times this summer, in 5 day sessions.  Here we do without internet...or television, didn't even turn the radio on.  Spent lots of time looking out at the lake, sailing on the lake, but not  so much swimming.  Our end of the bay is way weedy as the water level declines.)

Georgian Bay Group of Seven plus two dogs

The last sail with all the guys, now  they are  home to Albert and  Saskatchewan
These guys are happy that the wood is available, one afternoon there were seven.

Great foods this time of year, yummy fresh berries, home made waffles, and homemade Greek style yoghurt

I am home now, back at it...kinda.   I notice it takes me a few hours to remember where I am and what I need to be doing and when...but I have a quilt on the frame and the Fall Fair is coming soon.
Happy Friday,
