I am thrilled to say that Penny Pincher, a Primitive Gatherings pattern by Lisa Bongean is a finish. This quilt was a joy to piece, and the result makes my heart sing. The quilt top seems almost to glow from within. I made the quilt somewhat smaller than the pattern called for, and pretty much stopped when I realized it would fit my bed.
It rained much of the entire weekend here, and I am expecting we will float away at any time. There must a limit as to how much the sodden soil can absorb.
The little gully behind our lot turned into a raging torrent. It has been dry as a bone as long as we have been here, but it is surely transformed now from all the rain we have gotten. There are currently lots of flood warnings in our area, as local creeks overflow. At least we are not experiencing mudslides as many other communities are. It is just a matter of time until various trees lose their grip in the soft soil and topple over though. I am so tired of the rain, as most of my neighbors are as well. We needed the rain, and the reservoir in the next county can be seen from my kitchen window, a sight we have not seen since moving here. Hopefully this means the drought is over.
Whatever the weather where you are, I hope you had a great weekend!
