Turkey Tracks: August 26, 2021
Late August 2021
The rainy days have finally stopped, and the very long lawn grass dried out enough for me to mow on Tuesday.
It was rough going as my little electric mulching mower was not happy with the long and damp grass, but we persevered, and the job is done.
There is so much moisture in the system though, from all the rain, so the hotter days (mostly 80s) are creating a lot of humidity. Fortunately, the nights are cool. I’ve been running the dehumidifier downstairs for many weeks now, and that has helped a lot.
It’s been a busy week, but today and Friday are “open,” so AC and I will get out into the yard for much-need shrub pruning and weeding of one bed maybe. Other than the suddenly overgrown shrubs (they liked all the rain), the weeding is not out of control. The deer are though. They love my hostas.
Debbie Jeske, A Quilter’s Table blog, has been posting the sampler blocks she’s making. They are all done now but for the big center block that will come along now with this project.
I really like her blocks and her color choices. Take a look?
I really like all of Debbie’s work, actually. She is an inspiration.
And here is where I am with Tara Faughnan’s Wedding Ring pattern. This quilt is so much fun! And it is not hard. I will want to make it again with a different color palette.
The top two rows are done, and I’m working on the rings for the third-row centers. I think all the centers are now placed where they will stay now. This quilt is chewing up solid fabric scraps in the most pleasant way.
Enjoy this back end of summer before we head into fall. The seasonal wheel is turning here—the light has already changed a lot.
