The dream that woke me early this morning was my brain's way of saying, "Enough already, girl. Time to slow down or else."
So, the desk is nearly cleared, the lists are written for my trip back to the city for a family event I can't miss this weekend (what to bring, stops to make along the way and while I'm there, birthday gifts and canned goods to share, etc.) the laundry is started, library items organized, garden produce mostly processed, time for a bit of the county fair in town… I think you've got the idea.
Just a quick visual idea of some of the things that kept me joggin' since my last post:
Quilt Expo, Madison:
Last year's best of show was awarded to Betty Ekern Suiter. Just an example of how interesting life can be, I sat with Paula Ekern at the rosemaling class. Betty, this world renowned quilter, is her sister-in-law!
harvesting and processing garden bounty (freezing, canning, pickling):
surprise overnight visitors (Jerome's two brothers and nephew) out for "ride" on their bikes:
a class at the local quilt shop, Rapid Fire Hunters Star, a single finished block done in class and then a second done at home and joined to the first while I still remembered how to use the fancy ruler
Jerome's new B, a John Deere 1947 B
my new B, a Bernina 750QE with stitch regulator so I can do free motion quilting and have every stitch be uniform (well that's the theory, anyway!)
a time or two that I remembered to stop and take a photo of the beauty that is every where around me:

And that cute photo of our little Mya on the header??? She knows how to take cozy time. Thanks for the example, dear one.
