It has been a very long day. We headed to a hotel late last night and attempted to sleep a bit before the 3:20 alarm to wake up to head to the airport for our 6AM flight. We had an uneventful flight and arrived in upstate NY before 9AM. There was some delay in getting the rental car but we were off and hitting a Dunkin drive through for hot coffee for the ferry ride over to VT. About 2 hours later we were arriving at my parents house on a small lake in Central Vermont. It was hot and muggy for their warm spell and there is no AC up this way. Well, we remembered an AC unit that I took out here when we moved south and Aidan carried the heavy thing down the steep stairs and we got it installed into the living room window and running about an hour ago. Emily and I are sitting out on the screened in porch while my parents are in the living room watching a ball game. We took a little kayak paddle on the lake after dinner and clean up. If it was cooler upstairs, we all would be up in bed! Hoping the slightly cooler air outside will be drawn in with the window fans and cool things down a bit soon. Another day of heat before the cool front and storms ushers in highs around 70 on Thursday. Some photo's of the kids in the kayaks on the lake.

I'm in again! I'm just removing the few finishes from Spring and see what can get accomplished this quarter!
8.) this quilt that has been an on and off, leader and ender for years. My scrappy irish chain. I believe I had a bucket of 2 inch squares next to my sewing machine for a while and would make sets, and rows and blocks in between sewing other things. I think it wants to get competed.
I have been trying to prep things for hand work for travel this week. This cross stitch always get tucked in when I travel yet rarely gets worked on. Might this be the year? This is Januarys pattern from Paula Vaughan's Quilts for All Seasons - cross stitch designs.

When I made my spring blossom quilt a few years ago I had an extra purple one.
After selecting it for the table scraps challenge it sat, and sat, and sat. Today was the day to machine quilt it. Then I attached the binding... and added a little hand quilting inside the blooms. Sophie was napping but allowed me to cover her up a bit with it for a photo.
Linking up with Joy and the Table Scraps Challenge.
