It's been a busy week, but I managed to get some sewing accomplished for me. I started this quilt before leaving home as I had been wanting to make it for a couple years. Actually, ever since I saw it at Lori's home when I visited her probably 3 years ago. I had the pattern in Quilt Sampler of Fall/Winter 2005 tagged, but then misplaced it and couldn't find it until recently. So far I have over 50 blocks done but none are sewn together yet.
I also worked on my DGD's quilt with her. She has been super busy with working, being a bridesmaid today, etc., but we managed to get a couple sewing sessions in and the blocks of the Bricks and Stepping Stones quilt are getting sewn into rows. I meant to get a picture, but didn't, so will do that for next time. It is really looking great!
There are 2 cherry trees in the yard, so we picked some yesterday. Yummy!! The trees aren't producing a lot this year because they trimmed them last year, but the few that are there are luscious.
One day we went to Salem to see Deepwood Estate, but it was closed due to the illness of the tour guide. Hopefully we can make time to go back. We tried to see it 3 years ago and it was closed then too. It looks like an awesome old house.
We are sure enjoying the Oregon weather! The nights get down to 48-50 and the days haven't gotten any higher than about 82 or 83. We can handle that!
