The miles of binding are completed, and Sara's Log Cabin quilt is installed on her bed. Remy jumped right up on it and told us he thought it would be ok. What is it with our pets and new quilts? They always want to lie down on them to test them out. How many times have you tossed a quilt top onto the floor to stand back for a better look, only to have your dog or cat walk right over it and lie down?
Here is a picture of the whole quilt, minus dog accessory. Classic, but somehow modern looking. It works very well with her bedroom decor, and Sara seems to be quite pleased.
I have survived my first week on my own since my husband went back to work. His job is some distance away from where we live, so he has to stay at the job location all week. I miss his company, particularly in the early evening, when we have the habit of sitting on the porch with a glass of wine and discussing the day's events. However, I am thoroughly enjoying being in charge of the tv remote control. I can watch shows directed towards a more female audience, which I normally wouldn't subject him to. Outlander is my guilty secret.
Our weather is becoming progressively warmer, and the sound of weed whackers is going on all day long in my neighborhood. I think this weekend may be the one where we get our herb garden planted! Whatever your plans for the weekend, I hope you are happy and safe.
