Almost finishes

It was another busy weekend. I finished quilting the odds and ends quilt and got the binding sewn on. Over the next couple of evenings I will work on handstitching the binding.
The next almost finish is the Irish Blessing. Now I just need to get it framed.
Saturday the band had a show in Mentor at the marina. After we got the merch booth set up
there was plenty of time to take a walk. I wanted to see the lake - Lake Erie. There were several inlets that were lined with docks - one right after another. People had personalized their spaces with roofs, fire pits, landscaping, etc.
It didn't look like any of these were where you would stay overnight. There didn't appear to be running water as there were port-a-johns lining the road. I walked 3/4 of a mile and ended up with a view of the breakwall so I never did see the lake, but the area was beautiful.
The show went well. Not a huge crowd and merch sales were decent.
A cousin whom my brother and I haven't seen in 20 years came to the show. He is a physical therapist and plays in a blues band. Michael got him up on stage and they played a song together.
I spent some time trimming and watering last night. We hadn't gotten any rain for about a week. About 45 minutes after I was done, it rained! There was none in the forecast. Oh well, the rain took care of the plants that I didn't have time to water.

That looks like a really beautiful venue. Kudos on getting the quilting done so quickly!

It sounds like there are a lot of musicians in your family. Pretty neat to meet up with a cousin.
