Abe is very happy with his newly finished quilt. I put an extra high loft batt in it, so it's nice and comfy.
I have been busy fighting a summer cold and doing some cleaning. Figure that if I'm sniffing from a cold I might as well be sniffing from allergies, too. Made sense at the time. So my room is clean to the roots(thanks to Sandy for her help- the girl can seriously clean- and she even rearranged furniture- it looks great!) and now I am concentrating on laundry. I have finally gotten a bit smart about it. Stopping before I am completely tuckered and am tempted to leave that last load in the dryer overnight. No more! So I've been stopping while I'm ahead of the game and getting everything folded and put away before bed time. So much more pleasant than waking to wrinkled laundry.
Our second son is getting ready to leave home. Tuesday will be his last day with us. He is anxious to get started on his new life. He is moving to Morgantown, West Virginia to begin another preacher training program. Sunday will be his last day with the church here. I am hoping that this will be easier than when our first son left. We've had more notice, that's for sure. That wasn't something I considered when I had them so close together(16 months)- that they'd be leaving home close together, too. Ah well, I'll be a pro at it before long.

Couldn't resist quilting this little baby up. Just a simple meander did the job and then an easy binding of fabric that was already on the diagonal. A cinch. I should be unpacking and repacking bags, but I guess I needed a little down time- something other quilters can appreciate. Quilting and sewing relax me and I rarely feel stress by the whole process. Especially when things go well- and with this little 16x21" project- things went very well, dontcha think?
