Turkey Tracks: August 14, 2021
After 9 days of his visit here, I took this guy back to the Portland airport for his journey home:
I started missing him before he even left!
He is heading into his 18th birthday and his senior year in high school, which includes all the stressful college applications and worry about “what next.”
It was delicious to have 9 days to one-on-one time with him as I had not seen him (or any of the other family members in Charleston, SC, for two years).
While he worked on summer school assignments, due very soon now, I did get in some sewing. And what a fun, fun project this wedding ring quilt by Tara Faughnan is!
I am sewing together the the last block on the right in the upper row later today and will join it to the others. Each is 20 inches finished—so the quilt will eventually be 80 by 80 inches. Of course I am moving around colors—nothing is set in stone until I actually sew it, and the color ideas have already changed from this picture.
The garden is at that late August messy stage. EVERYTHING needs mowing or dead heading. But it is so hot and so humid that one gets drenched with sweat in short order outside. I did mow yesterday, but that was enough for one day.
Some of the trees are starting their fall colors. And the hummingbirds will be leaving very soon now. And the light has already changed rather a lot as the seasonal wheel starts to turn.
