I'm back to blogging. Most of the moving is finished and we are starting day #5 of our life in the mountains. After I finished organizing my sewing room, I worked on the front porch.
I stopped unpacking long enough to drive over to Sutter Creek for a guild lecture last week. What a nice group of quilters! This day was the start of our horrendous heat wave. It was 110 degrees on the drive over and probably 85 degrees inside the meeting room. The fans were flying.
I placed an order with Paper Pieces for my 1" templates for Grammy Square. They even personalized them!
I'm preparing for my Grammy Squares class at Alden Lane Nursery for Quilting in the Garden on September 21st. I still have a couple of openings in the class. I discovered a new way to make the hexagons which I think is a bit easier. I'll be posting a tutorial soon.
I can make three blocks out of the little fabric packets that my sister Gail has been making for me. We now have hundreds of them!
My sister Gail is coming up today to help me get kits together for the next two shows and the retreats. The next 8 weeks are going to be very busy!
Yesterday I joined the Independence Hall Quilt Guild here in Arnold. When I parked at the Community Center, I found a track at the Elementary School. This was the perfect place to take Mazey for a walk last night.
Mazey is hiding from the bear that we saw in the meadow. That was a little bit of extra excitement that we didn't plan on.
Our city neighbor John, pointed out to me how the lyrics to The Jefferson's sitcom applies to us.
"Well we're movin' on up, to the East side. To the deluxe apartment in the sky. Movin' on up to the East side. We finally got a piece of the pie."
With that eye worm is swirling around your head, I'm going to leave you.
