Week by week issues change round right here.
And if you solely depart the home as soon as inside that week – it is noticeable!
Tuesday night we took a bit journey over to the QPO –
Dave together with his “to do listing” hand written by me to double test that issues have been executed inside for the July Quiltvillians who arrived yesterday afternoon (You realize all of these cleaning soap and shampoo and physique wash bottles aren’t going to magically refill or change themselves!)
And I feel I referenced this in yesterday’s submit – however uncared for to share the picture of us driving residence after a tender rain.
The Queen Anne’s lace has grown up tall and is blooming alongside the roadside.
And my favourite of all – how the clouds can nestle proper into the timber.
There’s a little bit of night solar simply barely peeking by means of, giving the mountains a heat glow.
That is residence.
The spotlight of my yesterday –
Associates Lisa and Gina drove up from Winston Salem to spend the day and escape the warmth. Whereas the warmth index was pushing 100 down within the piedmont of North Carolina, we have been about 20 levels cooler up right here, hovering round 77 levels. It makes a distinction!
It might make me cranky come winter time – however summers are the principle cause we went mountainward.
What’s to not love about buddies who will drive 2 hours to spend a while?
And I’ve to chortle – and arrange this state of affairs, as a result of it’s too hystlerical.
The cellphone dialog went like this:
Lisa: “Gina and I need to come see you tomorrow. And Martha Claire gave me her mom’s <URN> to provide to you.”
Me, dumbfounded: “Oh,…….OKAY?”
In my thoughts I noticed this urn of ashes – what was I presupposed to do with Martha Claire’s mom’s ashes?
Are they supposed for show on the inn, or??
After which I caught it. In Lisa’s gentile North Carolina accent, URN and IRON are pronounced very a lot the identical, particularly over cell telephones.
It was Martha Claire’s mom’s IRON, not her URN.
Oh, my goodness, we laughed and laughed and laughed.
So yesterday – the IRON, a heavy responsibility classic Black & Decker, was delivered. And we laughed some extra.
SO GOOD for the soul, do not you agree?
And we acquired Stella play time!
Fetching with Zoey’s squirrel.
Stella is just a bit factor, not fairly one yr outdated, and we weren’t positive how issues can be acquired, so Zoey and Mabel stayed exterior within the play yard throughout our go to.
Because it seems, the women have been planning on heading towards Wytheville for some material remedy at Batiks And many others. earlier than heading residence down interstate 77. What a good way to spend an in any other case sizzling August day by escaping to the mountains.
As for me – a 2 hour nap adopted. I feel I cam getting too used to this leisure factor. It wants to finish. SOON.
I used to be in a position to share this in individual!
That is getting additional alongside and additional together with each sew. Nonetheless, after I have a look at vintage beauties quilted so intricately and so closely, I’m wondering how the women discovered time to sew in any respect.
There was no nice mild within the evenings. They did not have all of our notions and marking instruments.
And but the quilting was shut, stitches tiny, the workmanship utterly superb.
This does not even come within the working –
And nonetheless – SO MUCH STITCHING.
But when it weren’t for the stitching, what would we quite be doing with discovered moments of time?
The plan for as we speak is far the identical –
My good friend Jean from up the highway is bringing breakfast for a fast morning go to. I do not get to see her typically sufficient as our schedules are utterly reverse, and she or he lives only one/2 mile away.
I will nonetheless be ft up by means of the day, however this night the Hubster will drive me over to the QPO so the women can come down for a meet and greet.
I acquired messages from home mama Rebecca that all the July Quiltvillians are in the home and getting settled in and stitching away for the following week.
This retreat is adopted by the August Quiltvillians back-to-back so she is staying within the interim day in between to assist Susan with every little thing. Martha shall be readily available as nicely.
And shortly. Quickly I will be cell and weight bearing and simply be careful “This boot was made for walkin’….”

Seeing all of this scrappy goodness has me dying to dive in and do some piecing of my very own.
Certain, I’ve labored on a number of concepts on my pc, and I’ve concepts swirling in my head, however a quilt is not a quilt till you may truly MAKE the quilt with actual material and thread. It must turn out to be tangible!
And that is the place I’m begging you to entertain me with tales of what’s going on in your individual nook of the globe. Please depart a remark under letting me know what YOU shall be doing as we speak, and what you might be engaged on!
