There is a small creek that is usually about 3 feet wide and about 30 feet behind my fence-line. Yesterday it was about 60 feet wide and 3 feet from the fence-line! And it is running fast!
It empties out into an small inlet about 400 yards away that then leads into the Savannah River. We need a couple of no-rain days for the ground to dry-out a bit... The herons seem to be enjoying the rain though...he was picking up frogs that had washed out into the inlet.
So when it isn't raining it is really, really humid. Needless to say I am staying inside a lot! Which does help in the getting quilts finished category...
I sewed down the binding on Carnival Corn and even finished the hanging sleeve.
I'm going to give it a quick wash then sew on the label and call this one done!
I also got Bermuda Seaglass back from Judith Lockhart. It looks great. Now I just have to make miles of binding...ok, not miles but this is a king size quilt so lots and lots of binding. My DH wants dark blue binding which is ok by me...just happened to have a couple yards of it on the shelf!
And for a different type of finish...today we went to an estate sale. I wanted to replace a couple of blue and white plates that broke in the last move. Anyway, I ended up getting two small Hitchcock chairs. They are solid but the finish is a bit rough. I'm definitely re-caning them but I'm hopeful just a bit of polish and the original stencil will come through.
