I tried to squeeze in a bit of sewing these last four days. I did get top #6 sewn together.
On Sunday, despite how tired I was, I managed to get the 2 1/2" African prints strips paired up with the solid strips. Now they are ready for sewing.
The stack is 4" tall!
I still have some strips hanging on the design wall. I will need to cut a few more strips of solid fabrics to pair up with these. I am glad though to have gotten the majority of these strips organized and that they will be turned into quilt tops soon!
Friday the band had a show in Mentor, Ohio. The venue was beautiful, but the crowd was very small. They usually have a lot of tribute bands which draw big crowds. This event was original music night. They supplied us with drinks and a food truck voucher which was nice, because it was hot and I was thirsty! They also had 3 cameras and had two big screens which was pretty cool!
I had made little banana breads as the snack. They went over really good with everyone.
I got to bed at midnight and then Saturday's show was in Vermillion, Ohio. Again it was hot. The venue is a restaurant with an outside patio that is on the small side. The kids put on a heck of a show and they crowd was great.
Vermillion is right on Lake Erie so I took a quick walk while the band was setting up to get a picture of the lake. I got to bed at 2 a.m.
I was going to try and mow last evening, but it started to rain about 4 p.m. The sun peeked out again and I thought it might dry out enough, but then another storm blew in. My grass is so long! I did trim it and that helped, but it is looking pretty wild.
