Today will be slowly stitching the 252 inches of binding onto the Cobblestone quilt. I got this starry sky backing at Joann's and used it for this quilt and the stars and nines. It might even be used as the backing for the Book Club quilt which is next in line for hand quilting.
Emily and I will be popping over to the fairgrounds this afternoon to verify the chicken form for the fair is filled out correctly and to pick up the leg bands. It looks like it is on the other side of town about 30 minutes away. The boy will head to Grandma's like normal..... so he will need a pick up tonight. I do hope to hack... I mean trim the bushes around the back part of the house later this morning too. Aidan and I worked on the front and side yesterday... he does the trimming and I do the lugging. Today, I'll do the trimming and have Emily do the lugging! Too windy for a fire to burn it so it will go into the pile and hopefully things are calmer next weekend.... unless Eta decides to take a right turn and come back to Florida.
We have been doing a lot of watching tv this week to see the turnout for the elections in the USA. Aidan's civics class has been following it during class as well - a great history lesson they are living through! Lots of learning about the process and procedures in the government. Let's just hope there is a peaceful transition of power as the people have spoken and let's hope their wishes are followed through. I am so happy there is a well educated woman in the second highest seat - truly showing that women can do anything!
