Penny Rogers Camm, Quilting, and SNOW DAY!
Penny, aka as Penny Person and/or Pretty Penny–as affectionately nicknamed by the Coastal Quilters, came last night. (We had to distinguished Pretty Penny from No No Penny, my rat terrier.)
Penny brought her almost finished FIRST quilt, which is almost ready for its binding–a task she is learning to do on this visit. I love the way her hand stitching with No. 8 pearl cotton is coming out on this quilt. As soon as she gets the border kind of “nailed down,” we’ll put on the binding–which is the red of the narrow border. She will do more quilting after the binding is on as she has to leave on Wednesday morning.
Outside it is SNOWING! Hard. And it’s sticking now. Here is the start of our first winter’s snow.
Penny finished all her blocks for Amy Friend’s ‘Tell Me A Story” quilt. (Amy’s blog is During Quiet Time.)
They are SPECTACULAR! And ready to sew together.
We had a yummy lunch: smashed avocado with fresh garlic, salt, and lime and a salad:
The turkeys came calling:
Penny is watching THE CROWN (excellent!) and sewing down the border. I am sewing a Farmer’s Wife block. Outside, the world is all white.
