After finishing the Halloween blocks, I moved on to "Fresh Picked Posies". I only had two borders left, and look! They, too are finished and the quilt is off to Karen, our quilter, who promises to have it done in time for our quilt show. I love the way this turned out. Those borders are so worth it!
Next up, were the blocks for "Cabin in the Pines" block of the month. I thought I was maybe a little too ambitious taking all the blocks with me, but I actually got all of them done except two and it's way better to have too much applique than to run out and have too much time on my hands. Here are the blocks back home hanging in the barn. This is going to be such a cute quilt!
Even with all the applique, and setting up his apartment, and shopping for all the things we forgot, we did manage to squeeze in some fun. We rode our bikes along the ocean; there's a great bike path and you can ride from one beach to the next and enjoy the scenery! Then, on the way home, we detoured and made the trip to Yosemite National Park. We got there late in the day, just in time for sunset. It was beautiful with the sun on the monuments. It wasn't a great time to see all the different water falls or mirror lake, but we had a great time.
On the trip home, we were all riding in the same car, having left Zack's car to hold his parking slot! It's been a few years since we've all taken a road trip together and as usual, all three boys were giving me a hard time about my singing....I have a tendency to make the words up as I go. And then, I saw this bulletin board. Finally, someone who understands me!
