This picture is from this afternoon about 4:30 pm. Don't look too closely at the date and time on the bottom! I forgot to reset that info after the last power failure from a couple of months ago. For some reason or other the battery did not kick in - probably due to a dead battery I would guess!
But we have been taking advantage of these warm days with a boat ride every afternoon.
This picture was taken just after we returned from today's ride. It will probably be the last one, since the weather is supposed to change tomorrow and the boat comes out on Friday and I have class tomorrow afternoon.
I guess summer is really coming to an end...
Even if I try to ignore the leaves changing and beginning to fall.
September has been busy with some project finishes making me proud.
My knitted scarf was a summer project that I only worked during outdoor music concerts and on boat rides. Well, the concerts have been over for several weeks and today's boat ride was the last one of the season, so the scarf screamed "Finish me today", and so I did!
One last picture of Lisa's huge 110 x 110 "Pineapple Blossom" begun in the Bonnie Hunter class last year in September and now completely finished a year later. She brought it to Open Sew Monday night so we could enjoy it one last time.
"Falling Charms" became a completed top last weekend. I finally finished the last border during retreat last Saturday. Now to piece the backing and get it to the long armer.
Marie finished her Tablerunner last Friday during Open Sew. It was a compilation of left over fabrics from some of her previous projects.
September is coming to a close and with it maybe the horrible weather in terms of hurricanes will also end. Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria, fires in the west and heat in the east. It has been one for the books.
This Kaffe Fasset fabrics top was finally completely sewn last Wednesday at retreat. It has been a webbed top for many months.
The completed "Sister's Choice in Green" is shown here. The 49 blocks each have a different green in the triangles. It was pieced as a leader and ender project and mostly sewn in 2016. I tried to find a suitable border fabric for quite awhile but nothing ever clicked. I finally gave up and called it done. I like how it came out, don't you?
Still not completed, but on the design wall is this blue/purple hour glass and pieced sashing beauty from the early 2000's. It is scheduled to be completed after I return from California. Maybe it will be my UFO project for the next session.
But on a lighter, happier note...
Tomorrow is my aunt's 90th birthday. Happy Birthday Auntie! Sto Lat!
