Most of the people I quilt for are friends/customers I have had for some time. I am a part time longarm quilter, so my calendar is usually pretty full. I had the opportunity and pleasure to quilt for a new customer ... I met her so we could discuss thread color, pattern, etc and I was so excited when I saw her quilt.
... A sneak peek at what I'm working on ...

Have I said how happy I am that school is back in session ... There is such a peace that comes over me in the fall. It is my favorite time of year and reminds me that routines are good, and a necessary part of life. I have been busy ticking things off my to do list ... I'm currently working on my September stash class quilt ... Here's a sneak peek ...
I quilted a huge quilt ... 108 x 108 ...

The end of summer ... That's always what Labor Day meant when I was a kid, and when our kids were little. As much as I always dreaded the end of summer, there was a part of me that enjoyed getting back into the routine ... The routine of school and friends, and as a mom ... The routine of my kids being back in school and me being able to get something done! Now that we are empty nesting, it was a nice day to spend together. We walked the dogs in a beautiful area of downtown San Diego by the harbor, and got some home/yard work done.
When I flipped my calendar to September in my sewing room, this is what greeted me!! In San Diego we always look forward to the end of summer because the tourists go home and we get the beaches back to ourselves! August is usually when our weather starts getting HOT and it goes through October ... We've got a scorching week ahead of us ... Don't you feel sorry for me??
Isn't it beautiful? I was a little thrown by the light background color ... Cream, but with a lot of yellow in it. Once I found a taupy-grey thread in my stash, then I was happy with the results!
Now to sneak in a pic of my sweet g-daughter ... With her daddy ... Their first carousel ride together ... Their faces are priceless!!
