flipping the coin

Making progress on the WIP I started over labor day weekend. Football season is great for my sewing productivity.

Game Day Quilt

But the dawn of another football season means the end of another summer. Our neighbors already have their pier out.

Game Day Quilt

It's 92 degrees in Indiana today. Today is September 23. Kids went back to school on August 10th. Pools are closed. Did I mention it's 92 degrees?

We had the driest August on record, and folks around the office were positively agog when the skies opened up yesterday for a few minutes.  I don't like to admit it because I'm such a summer girl, but I'm ready for cooler weather. Though my tomatoes are still getting fat and ripe. Proof that there's a bright side to be found everywhere if you're willing to flip the coin.

For example: my husband will be gone all day Saturday at the ND game, which gives me roughly 14 hours to play in my studio. Fun times ahead!

[quilt details: hunky dory + kona burgundy = sublime. i kept the charms full size and set the whole thing on point. I'll talk more to the process when I get it backed, quilted, and bound.]
