I've been sewing every day this week, and the half log cabin top is completed, and I also pieced the backing fabric.  I really should have pin-basted it right away, but there were all sorts of short 1 1/2 inch strips left over, and I have stitched them all into 9-patch blocks - much more usable than some short strips!  One of these days, I'll be able to claim some fabric as "used".
DH and I did some clean-up this week, as we had company expected.  I love that he vacuums and washes floors!!!!
Wednesday evening we spent an hour enjoying the free concerts in the park - this time a solo performer.  He was very talented, playing guitar, banjo and bohdran, singing a variety of songs, and a witty banter!
Thursday afternoon our company arrived - 2 members of the band.  I fed them a quick lunch, then they headed over to the 4th member's home for a practice.  They hadn't been together since April, and wanted to run through their current playlist.  I joined them about 4:30, and we had a delicious dinner provided by our hostess.
DH and the keyboard player were up early on Friday morning, and played a round of golf.  Then, after lunch, he took her on a quick tour of Kingston, pointing out all the sights.  Around 3:30, the rest of the band arrived, and we had BBQ hamburgers and salads before they headed out for their performance for the local car club's "drive-in".  They meet in a local store's parking lot (with permission), and the group played 2 sets from 6-8pm with a short break.  Since they play 60's - 80's music, all the visitors looking at the vintage vehicles and hotrods, enjoyed the tunes, often dancing as they went past.
They left for Syracuse early on Saturday morning, and have 5 performances there, (mostly at nursing homes), before they return on Monday afternoon.

  1. Sounds like you had a very busy week. Looking for pictures of that completed log cabin quilt. Your numbers are still good with more out than in.


Thank you. Your comments are important to me.
