Judy's Bernina BSR is very sick and has to go back to the company, so she asked me to quilt this musical prayer quilt.
I debated and debated with myself and then chose a turquoise Glide thread and am making it into a sampler of free motion quilting designs.
Our rain total at the end of July reached 6.89 inches. We've had about a quarter of an inch so far in August. I have allergies for the first time in eight or ten years. If this is the kind of moisture this valley received when it was being settled, I can understand why it was a prosperous agricultural area. For the last ten or twelve years, we've been lucky to get 10 to 12 inches some years. We've had our windows open for the last four or five days (during the hours we've been home), and the weather has seemed just about perfect!
Tomorrow Sweet Teen has a chemistry final and then we head back to New Mexico Tech with a packed car. I'll miss her, but as I head back to school Wednesday, I should be too busy to get too lonely! Being gone two days a week since school was out means I feel my summer was very, very brief, but time marches on no matter what we do!
I still plan to do a tutorial for the Sweet Loreta quilt, but the only time I've had to work on it has been while I was waiting while my daughter was in class, and the connectivity at the college was limited, so the writing is still in progress.
I'm linking to Judy Laquidera's design wall Monday--the link is in the column to the right
