Week of many tasks

Away from home without sewing machine and studio space, I did some handwork. Finished binding this one for EBHQ's annual Show and Tell:
mini whole-cloth with trapunto

And after burying threads on this one, I could then say the quilting is done and it's ready for binding or facing.

I kept busy with other things during the week . . .

. . . pruned in the orchard before the rains:
branches and logs from a felled tree
. . . helped move a very heavy metal desk:
new office, old desk
. . . picked up bags of walnuts:
a dozen old walnut trees line the driveway
. . .  cleaned out the pantry:
vintage finds
For some reason I ended up at the supermarket every day, but stayed out of the malls and big stores on Grey Thursday and Black Friday. 

The barn is now holiday-ready with new l.e.d. mini-lights:

A big 8-foot square block just below the prow would be a fabulous addition, don't you think? Something bold and improvisational. Would love to see the neighbors follow suit.

  1. I think retirement suits you and your quilting is wonderful! Now that you have collected the nuts you can hole up in your studio for the winter :-)
