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.
