Summertime Sewing

The exterior house painting is now complete!  Just like that, my summer “honey-do” list is complete!  It’s finally time to get crafty!

Extended time in my happy place is just what I need after an emotionally draining few weeks.  Too much staff turnover at the day job and too many loved ones passing away.  Funerals are not my thing. After two of them in the past month for both a close friend and a former colleague,  that’s enough of that for a while, thank you very much.

I have one t-shirt quilt left to complete and then it is sew time for me:

  1. Duvet cover for master bedroom.
  2. Assemble Lady of the Lake quilt top and send to longarm quilter.
  3. Practice “ruler work” on unfinished quilt tops that have been hanging on the rack for a while.
  4. Get back to Dog Park quilt that I meant to make for Boomer’s pet stylist, Miss Lorena.  On Friday, I learned she’d recently passed away.  For some reason, news of her passing really hit me hard. Now, I’m determined to get the quilt finished in time for the East Cobb Quilt Guild Show next year.  I will do this one entirely by myself – including the machine quilting.

This quote by Mary Anne Radmacher sums up my personal mantra exactly:
