Little Boy and I have had a busy 2 1/2 weeks! We had to make 1 more big trip, driving a truck and towing a 2nd truck on a car transporter trailer. This was a hard drive for me so we took it slowly over the course of 3 days. The way the trailer was loaded, the weight, etc. - well, you felt every single bump in the road. Very jarring, to say the least. Add 1 day of high winds and rain, PLUS the fact the both the front and back tire on the main truck kept loosing air, which of course meant finding gas stations with an easy-access air pump... well, it was a long trip. However, during the trip, we were able to stop at Marden's in Maine, plus LL Bean in Maine, so we had some bright spots. And, Little Boy is such an excellent travler, thankfully! And, upon arrival, one of my sisters got the thing unloaded for me, made us dinner and then gave us a ride home when it was discovered that the 2nd trucks gas tank had been completely syphoned to empty (the 1st truck was still hooked to the trailer and I just wasn't up to driving it), phew! Honestly, after that trip I just didn't feel like doing anything for 3 days!
We have had visiting with the cousins, library story hours, trick-or-treating, trips to the playground, family dinners, night hikes and wood walks, bringing Big Boy in to be winterized... and just the usual schedule of our days.
My quilting fabric purchases from Marden's - all quilt backings, except for the solid purple which is a border. All $2.39 - $2.99 per yard! Thankfully, I had my little list of finished quilt sizes in my notebook so I was able to the right cuts. This fabric is all for quilts that are already made. Strangly enough, I am just not drawn to buying any fabric for new projects right now. I also got fabric for making clothes, but more on that at a later date!
And, I did finish something quilt-y in October - Cars & Stars now has a final border! Finished size is 61X75.
And here is a photo of Little Boy checking out some swans...
I have more to report about, but my time is limited this morning... but more to come later!
