A little of everything
I hope you all had a great weekend because I sure did! We didn't do anything special. It was just beautiful weather and I got to do a little of everything, including stacking wood for the upcoming fire season. Here's a little rundown of everything else.
I had a couple of hours Friday to finish 2 more rows on Kim's Garden. Only 5 more to go. I can finish it this week if I'll just focus. I have a big quilt for Mom to quilt next and I'd like to get going on it.
I didn't spend much time sewing but I did get the next set of Summer Sunset blocks started.
Most of my time was spent finally getting started on my Spirograph floor cloths. I got both sides of all 4 cloths primed with gesso and I've painted this practice piece with 2 coats of leftover paint from a room in our house. I'll start doing some practice drawing next and will send Chris out this week to buy the paint I need for the kitchen floor cloths.
I also hung this painting that my friend painted for me for my birthday. It's the view from Acadia Mountain from one of our hikes last summer (2019) in Maine. The water is Somes Sound. I love it.
In the "big news" category I got the cape packed and ready to ship today! It was a lot more work than I expected because I eventually had to build a box. But it's safely packed with lots of acid free tissue paper and off go back home to New York. I've had some funny conversations with my brothers telling them of the new family discoveries. Today I need to write my new cousin a long email with info that I've discovered and send some photos that she can add to her family documentation.
I'm very excited for this week because the county is finally letting us back in our meeting space for our sewing days! They will set it up so that we are 6 feet apart and we are limited to 15 people. They will check our temperatures when we arrive. We are all excited to sew together again. But last night I realized that I needed a project! I sewed all my veterans quilt kits on vacation so I'll do some planning this week and see what I can come up with. It will be too much trouble to pack up Summer Sunset because I have it all set up here so I'm going to start yet another new project.
I love a new project!
have fun with your sewing group - I'm sure it has been hard on all people that need social interaction to be apart from their friends and family (it is opposite for me it hasn't bothered me in the least other then not visiting family)

You do have a lot of irons in the fire! What will you use to mark the floorcloths with - Sharpies?

Oh, the joy of starting a new project! I know how you feel because I'm about to embark on a new one and now have the fun of picking the photo I want to work from. Nice that your sewing group is able to meet again - our quild is looking towards maybe January but the way things are going with the virus it seems it won't happen unless there's some sort of miracle.
