Another One Done

Beach Cottage quilt is done. Time to start another one. Tomorrow afternoon well after the cleaning leave, I'll head out to the sewing loft for the "In the Meadow" or Craftsy BOM, 2012, I haven't decided which one I want to do first.

Feels like Autumn and I got to sleep in this morning. Eight hours of sleep feels really good and there was coffee already for me when I did finally pull myself out of bed.

Today, I'm starting on my Beach Cottages quilt. Finished Dr. Who on Saturday and as much as I enjoyed the experience by the time the 12 weeks were up, so was I ready to be finished.

Yesterday, we dined mainly out of our garden with just a few minor exception which was a quarter pound of hamburger and sodas and lettuce. Those Roma tomatoes were really piling up and beginning to look a bit ill, so I decided that spaghetti sauce was in order. I have canned spaghetti sauce in the past, but yesterday I made a small batch just for the two of us. It was pretty yummy I must say!

Now for the quilt:

Another Block Done

September already!
This year has certainly zipped by in a flash. WOW!
Today is the second day of quilting my Dr. Who quilt. I am amazed at how smoothly it is going on the home machine. As it progresses, I'm certain that I can get it finished and maybe even get my Beach House quilted before the end of the month.
Last weekend was the 200th Anniversary of the Battle of Lake Erie and the War of 1812. We went to see the Tall Ships Parade, but that is all. Missed the concert, the lighting of the Perry Monument and the concert in the park, oh well, I'm getting use to miss things that I want to see. We had earlier missed the German Fest which I just love.
We did go to the WA picnic, but it rained so we did not stay very long although I was happy to get home and out of the cold.
The Flagship, Brig Niagara coming in to Presque Isle Bay:
This is the latest BOM from Craftsy. It certainly is retro

And Dr. Who basted and ready to start quilting.
