I finished the Orange and green Halloween quilt - YEAH! After hanging it up to take a picture of it, I am not sure about putting the orange binding all the way around the quilt. I think I should have put green binding next to the green blocks on the left and right sides. I will have to think about this. It would only take a couple of hours to change. I will have to think about this. I am sure the 4 year old this is for won't care, but it bugs me. This quilt finished 79" x 91".
The next quilt will be the purple and gray Halloween quilt. I had bought plenty of the off white spider web fabric so that will be used for the backing.
Saturday morning the band had a gig and wouldn't you know it there was a chance of rain and for once the weatherman was right. The rain started about an hour before the show started and almost quilt after we loaded out. We were soaked. The wind would blow at times it was hard to keep the tarp on the merchandise booth. You see those white lines on the right side of this picture? That is rain running off the tent I was standing under.
That brown tarp in the upper left corner is covering the merchandise. We didn't have a tent because my brother packed the tent frame, but forgot the tent! Oops!
Saturday evening was the opening night for the Akron Art Prize. I went down to see all the entries. Here is mine
There was a wonderful mix of pieces: photography, sculpture, watercolor, paintings, stained glass, jewelry, and mixed media. There was a lot to see.
Sunday morning I met my brother, Mike, at my brother Bob's house to clean up the yard. Bob is coming to Akron for a few days and we needed to clean up the yard. We raked, weed wacked, swept, leaf blowed, and power washed as much as we could in 3 1/2 hours. The yard looks much better. Here is Mike weed wacking away.
I was a wet, dirty mess when I got home! I brought home sheets and towels to wash so I did laundry while I worked on the Halloween quilt. About 7 p.m. I headed out to mow my grass. I tried to mow the backyard but the grass is still too wet. The temperature has dropped, but it is still humid so the grass just won't dry out.
