I made some good progress on the B&W quilt. The area circled in blue is quilted. I only have one side and a half of that black border to quilt. I am at 29% quilted right now.
I spent Friday and a bit on Saturday pressing and stitching the handles for 51 more tote bags. I was not moving fast on Saturday since I had spent two hours out in the heat Friday night mowing and watering. The heat sure took the wind out of my sails!
My brother sent me pictures of the band's new trailer. The old trailer was 5'x8' with a rounded top. This one is 6' x 10' and has 11 inches more of head room. The best part of this new trailer is we can now roll the equipment and road cases on the trailer rather than having to pick them up as the old trailer did not have a ramp style door. This also means that I don't have to get the two merch road cases packed so quickly. They always had to be loaded first on the old trailer. You can't close the merch booth down when you still have customers. Now the guys can start loading the equipment first and the merch cases can go in last.
I got a bit more done on the cross stitch piece
and I finished up the items for my sister's birthday present. I need to get those in the mail. As soon as she receives them I will show you what I sent her. The show for Saturday got canceled. Apparently the promoter didn't have the money to pay the band.
