I had a productive weekend over the Labor Day weekend. I steamed & added a few last touches to "Simply Crazy", a 19"x19" wall quilt for the small quilt auction coming this weekend for my quilt guild. I did my piecing & quilting all at the same time, just like the quilt I made a few years ago for the Alliance for the American quilt auction, that Allie Aller ended up owning, & putting in her beautiful book. This one is similar to that quilt, some of the same fabrics, but ended up a little crazier.
Some progress was made on my back entryway project too. Warren hung the little chandelier.
I made 3 tiny little quilts (about 5x7), to fill a space on the wall. I used some upholstery samples for the fabric, & made some leaves from the very same 36 mil copper that I put on the lower walls.
I found an old board & put some rust colored screws in it to hang keys on. I hate hunting for my keys. We got stopped by the fact that we didn't have long enough finishing nails for the trim....so next weekend we hope to get the trim up, around the door.
Warren got some outside painting done on Monday.
Trees are turning color. Last night we had 131 mph winds that blew things around. We were without power for several hours. Thank goodness I had a French Press this morning, so I could at least get some coffee in me! I put my pants on backwards trying to dress by my 1 battery operated candle (that my DD gave me after we nearly set the house on fire at Christmas time). I also found that I had my watch on upside-down when I got to work... doing my hair in the dark was a challenge too.
This poor little guy was a bit shell shocked by the winds on Monday. They were mild compared to what we had last night.
This happened to my planter, before the BIG winds.
We also have termination dust on the mountains tonight.
This weekend coming up I have the ALCQ Quilt show. 10-4 Sat & Sunday.
Come on over! 7th & G st downtown Anchorage, at the Phillips Conoco Atrium.
