These first two borders have continuous feathers.
We spent much of the day in Albuquerque taking advantage of the tax-free weekend to pick up several items of clothing, school supplies, and items for Sweet Teen's dorm room. We had set out in the morning hoping to avoid the worst of the crowds. Of course, we hadn't realized that one of the places Sweet Teen wanted to shop was opening early, so by the time we left the mall, a good portion of the state's population was there!
After yesterday's off and on rain showers, we were hoping for more today. We've had several hours of thunder in the distance, but no rain. Still, the clouds do help moderate the temperatures.
I'm hoping that tomorrow I'll be able to complete the third [8.5 inch] border and move on to binding. After the noisy crowds today, I really noticed how quiet the treadle is.
