Joe was with me in Richmond for the first part of the week. He had started a little home remodeling project there with Tom several weeks ago and it needed to be finished. So, while I cooked, washed, and entertained Anastasia, he hammered and sawed and trimmed. His project turned out so well! What he did was install a room divider with French doors at one end of the living room, at a natural division spot, effectively making two rooms out of one. So Tom now has a teaching studio once again, having surrendered his spot to Nathaniel.
I finished the hand-quilting on the gender neutral quilt for Ben and Mia's June baby and will be binding it this weekend. Photo op upon completion. Once that was finished, I had some stamped bibs to embroider for Nate and completed all of them.
One afternoon during naptime, Joe took me out to Quilting Adventures. I know I've mentioned previously how much I like this shop. I'm mentioning it again. We learned that dear friends of Andrew and Amy are expecting a little baby girl in August, and of course this little soul must be warm when autumn comes along. Don't you love the fabrics we picked out for her quilt? I certainly do. The light fabric with the trees will be the background and the other fabrics will be used for six-inch blocks. Not positive what block yet, but you know how it is with me -- if it isn't baskets, it is Louisiana, so it is a good chance it will be one or the other! My hope is to get this top assembled and sandwiched before it is time to go and tend to Amy after Hambone's birth. He's due a week from today. So a busy time is ahead!
