Well, we are waiting here for Irene to arrive. It's very calm here right now so we'll see what happens. Looks like the eye of the storm will be coming right over my house. In the meantime not too much going on here but I do have some things to share.
I been barely sewing these days but am getting started putting rows together on this quilt. I hope I have power tomorrow to sew!
And big news-my husband and I put a bid on this lake cottage and it was accepted so we are in the process of purchasing it. It's about 35 minutes from our home and is a seasonal cottage so we are looking forward to taking posession in September and then doing some work on it. It's a good time of year to by these kind of places here, so with interest rates so low and some money available to invest we took the leap. We have always wanted a lake camp so this is a dream come true. We have been renting a cottage on a nearby lake and are really happy we'll have a place of our own to share with our family. I keep thinking of quilts I'll make for the place so that's what I'll be doing this winter! It's a bit rustic so I'll be sharing some pictures as we get fixing it up. What fun! I hope everyone in the path of Irene stays safe.
I forgot to add that Penny, my cat from this post won first prize in her category, cats on quilts! I am very proud of her. She loves quilts and can always be found on one. Thanks to anyone who voted for her.
