You can certainly feel our Summer is coming to a close. As the sun sets the heat of the day soon disappears. Most of the Summer annuals in the garden are looking a bit tired.
Finally settled in my new to me home, and it is looking more like home, now that I have some of my photos and wall hangings displayed.
We have finally finished the outside painting and all of the windows cleaned inside and out. The painting should have been done some years ago, but life got in the way for my partner, however, between the two of us we made everything look bright and clean again.
Needless to say I have not been doing much in my sewing room. The room is bigger and the window and closet are in a different location than the previous room I had, so trying to find an arrangement that will work better for me. Because the room is larger I moved a tall wooden cabinet with glass doors in there to store all of my fabric and completed quilts, however, it needs some shelving before I can do that. At the present time....well it is just a mess. This month our quilting guild starts our monthly meetings after having July and August off. My block for the September charity quilt is completed, I am so glad I did this one several months ago, all I need to do now is deliver it to one of the members as I won't be able to attend this meeting.
A busy August. My youngest daughter hosted the 16th reunion for the families which travelled to China many years ago when they adopted their daughters. All of the quilts I made were given to the girls and they were so very pleased with them. My partner and I went to my daughter in law, Fathers 100th birthday party, in Meaford, we stayed overnight in Collingwood. The following day went to Midland. It was a nice break from all of the work at home. The family, celebrated my Mothers 98th birthday in August, such a great day, games, conversations, and yummy food.
One week from tomorrow, Saturday we will be on a three week vacation to the East coast of Canada. We are both so looking forward to it as it has been a hectic Summer....
Have a great day
