Thanks for the birthday wishes, didn't do too much of note after the border and taking the round to the post office. Today has very little planned as well, other than dinner later hopefully some computer gaming and sewing time as much as may be fun... Tomorrow I plan on sewing but I should double-check on if the Hubby has made plans I don't know about.

Next week my grandbundle will be a year old! Oh my goodness, they grow up so fast. Haven't held him since Christmas because of the Covid stuff but there will be a small outdoor family party at the other grandmother's house and we will be there.

thanks for hosting! Looking forward to this quilt weekend--even planned the mowing and trimming chores (DH still not doing his part due to knee replacement and now cancer treatments) and got up early today to deal with pup and do my laundry--2nd of 2 loads (luckily after it agitated) my 22 yrs old washer totally died. So have spent the morning dragging basket of soapy clothes to driveway and hosing out soap, hanging them on clothes line (yeah! sunny and 90's here today so at least will dry!) and then dipping out a large, full tub of water. And our local appliance store is closed due to Labor Day. So after I eat breakfast,lunch whatever and dry off I'll be heading to sewing room!

Checking in, hoping everyone's holiday weekend is going good!

De-spidering is not fun, constantly taking the time to pull out one thing, shake it, check the floor, clean it, put that away and then repeat has been tedious but happy to report, we haven't found anymore....so far. I don't think my dogs know what to do with me right now, they lay or sit on the floor near me and just watch with the most puzzled look on their faces...it's sweet and comical at the same time.

I did manage to get some time in my quilting room late last night, I steam cleaned all of my wool mats (have three) and they're all sparkly clean and smell fresh, cleaned off my desk, reorganized my tool organizer and considering making a new one, cleaned up and oiled my sewing machine so she's squeaky clean and quiet now (she's actually been quiet since I got her back from my sewing machine guy, but she developed a quiet little tic that I had to track down and oil), cleaned out my iron with some vinegar and wiped the sole plate down with a Magic Eraser (thanks ladies for that tip, it works great!) and switched out all my blades in my rotary cutters, so I'm ready to go for my sister's quilt. Also tore down my old design wall, no spiders hiding behind it and I'll put the new one up when I start to quilt again.

I won't get much done the rest of the weekend, a friend of ours not far from us found out that her roof was damaged during some storms that blew through earlier last week and my fiance is there to fix it for her. Luckily, it's a metal roof and he's really good at that, but it will take some time since he's going to inspect her entire roof and make sure she's good for fall and winter. So going to let the rest of the weekend move along and see what crops up, but will be in my quilting room, at the very least.

I am thrilled with what I got accomplished yesterday. DD and SIL's top is finished, pressed, and 'resting' on the spare bed. DD has a queen pedestal bed with drawers underneath, so this has a 20 inch overhang. I will double check with DD to make sure it is enough. I could always put 3 inch piano key borders on the sides if she decides it isn't wide enough. This one used up a 'few' scraps. Thanks for looking.

Wow! Ginger I hope you are as impressed with yourself as I am. That's fantastic. Just taking a coffee break here and nothing to report.

Finished the BOTW! But not going to LQS. A man's coming to give an estimate for some landscaping work. Also, there's a wild fire E-SE of here. The wind is coming this way, so the smoke cloud is too. Currently it's pretty high but dense enough to block the sun. I need another project, so I'll look around, there's sure to be something.

I've gotten sidetracked today a bit, cleaning out the numerous toy bins that my youngest granddaughter has outgrown. But I have made 3 blocks/triangles for Jane so far. But as usual, I can't get all the photos to load. sigh....

Just checking in......wow.
Aashlwy333, nice blocks and lay out, I really like your colorful choices. I got to do the beach last week with the grands and my daughter, there is just something about being at the beach. 😍😁
Happy birthday Iceblossom, hope it's a good one.
Gingerk, like the string quilt.
I finished the cords for the table runners, and got one stitched. Will be back at it tomorrow afternoon.
i tend to do these in batches, cut out the strips and figure out the layout, then I'll sew them into their one long strip, then make the cords, then comes the rug or table runners. I find it easier when my sewing machine is set up for one step to do a bunch of that step, then reset up for the next step and so on. I'll be checking back in tomorrow, happy sewing, sorting, cleaning, or playing with EQ8.....
