I finished two more quilts, making a stack of 14 quilts to deliver.
Thanks Tove! I'm still quilting all the tops she gave. I also have a few that I pieced to quilt in the queue as well!
I pieced both of these consecutively on one big backing.
I made a special little baby quilt for Dr. Kaufman's soon to be arriving grandson.
I used a piece of silk (at least I think it is) for the backing that I had in my stash along with the leftover silk batting trimmings from our summer bed quilt.
Yesterday afternoon we took a short drive to the viewpoint for the dry salt lakes to the east of us.
They have a good bit of water in them from all the rains we've gotten. I can't remember ever seeing the hills around so green! Amazing what a normal monsoon rainy season will do for the natural vegetation.
Roads on either side of ours are lined with flowers! I finally checked the settings on my camera with the manual. I had noticed my pictures were all coming out grainy. I was able to restore it to better settings, and also found I have a "wide" option. Guess I should spend more time with the manual!
