I just realized it's been a week since I posted, so I thought I'd check in quickly while Stanley Steemer cleans my carpets! It's been a busy week with almost no sewing time. I did manage to quilt a customer quilt over the weekend and will load another when I finish this. We've been working nights and weekends on our Canoe Carnival float...picture a 20 foot tall building made of 1" thick foam, along with a street scene of smaller buildings, mounted on a deck, which is mounted on 2 - 17 foot canoes and paddled around a lake. I'll post pictures once it's done and has floated...if it stays afloat! :o) It's great fun to work on the floats and we've built one every year since we moved to town. The photo is of last year's float. Our theme was "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds". You can see the newspaper taxi, tangerine trees and at the very top right, Lucy, swinging on the moon. At the center, left, you can see the two paddlers sitting on chairs behind the float. One of them is my DH. You can also see one of the canoes...
So, that's it from here...I'm off to quilt!
