My brother called to tell me that one of the keyboard players will not be able to make it to the show this weekend so I didn't need to get the amp cover done for this weekend. Whew! I did get all the quilting done, the pieces cut to size, the patch sewn on, and the handle hole reinforced. It will take only about an hour to assemble the thing.

I worked last evening and this morning trying to get the pieces quilted for the amp cover. I now have the other side piece quilted

I was exhausted when I got home from work and the doctor's appointment last evening. I had to go on the interstate again, but at 2:10 in the afternoon the traffic was light. There were still the people weaving in and out of traffic and driving too fast, but it was a much less stressful trip than the day before. I am done with the interstate for a while. Whew! After resting a bit, I had to try and at least get the next project started. I need to make a cover for an amp for my nephew.

I didn't have time to get any sewing done after work because I had a hair appointment. Since my job relocation has taken me farther away from where I need to go, I had to put on my big girl panties and drive partway to the salon on the interstate in order to get there on time. The interstate is a mess with construction and people drive like there are no rules! Changing lanes and speeding like there is no tomorrow! I was in fear for my life! And to think I get to do it again this afternoon to go to the doctor. I am not looking forward to that. If I would go on city streets it would take me 45 minutes; via the interstate it takes 22 minutes. By the time I got home it was 6:30 and my neighbor came over to talk. Then it was 7:05 and I was beginning to crash after a long day. I did have time to walk around and take a picture of a visitor. I don't know if this is a different butterfly or the same one that I took a picture of before, but it was posing nicely for me.

I really put my nose to the grindstone and got the Lorain t-shirt quilt done. It measures around 72" x 96". 15 minutes after I took the picture it was handed off to my brother to give to my nephew, his son. I know it is hard to tell in this picture, but the backing has musical note on it.

I made some great progress on the Lorain quilt last evening. I have circled what I have left to quilt.
