My kitchen cabinets have been repainted; a 3 day job that took 5 days with a non-working weekend in the middle of it all. They are now a lovely shade of light grey instead of oak; the colour is actually called "drizzle" which goes along with the grey colour in the living room -- rain cloud. Two Rubbermaid containers are full of items that will not be going back into the cupboards; next stop is a thrift store to drop that off.
I managed to finish the binding on a quilt, along with a hanging sleeve. I have 4 quilts that will be in the IWK-Mayflower Quilt show the first few days of October.
It was not meant to be king-sized!
All those small squares should have been 1 3/4 inches NOT 2 1/2 inches. A quilt kind of grows when the individual pieces are bigger than they should be. I could have stopped sooner, but my goal was to include the cream colour on the outside edge along with the matching cream/beige fabric next to it.
Oh well, live & learn!
So ... also in September, my daughter from Mississauga visited (you can see the original colour of the cabinets in this picture); Charlotte loved her aunt!
I attended a workshop on machine-quilting (which I NEED a lot more practice) and I gave a presentation on an 'intro to quilting' along with a trunk show. And of course all the normal day-to-day stuff like taking the CRV in for a service check, renewing the license (& replacing it since the old one was peeling) and starting up the fall quilting meetings.
This week I leave for quilting retreat in Pictou (really looking forward to that ... getting to work with Laurie Swim!!) and if all works out well, on Sunday afternoon, I hope to drive to Inverness to attend the next opening of the SAQA Atlantic Canada show.
Then September will be done and I can hope to accomplish in October the things I meant to finish up over the summer !!
