My Life in Pictures - Week 24

Watching what I eat and walking every day is starting to pay off!

The building next door is being renovated and this giant piece of siding went right by our window.

We test drove a new Volvo. It didn't come home with us, but another one is about to. Stay tuned!

Our swim locker room has a slightly more finished look now - photo taken from doorway.

Someone on our team has a sense of humor:

My Life in Pictures - Week 23

This past weekend we went to a quilt and vendor show at a small college nearby.

Grand Prize Winner

Really cool Harry Potter quilt

After seeing the quilts we walked around the campus.

And of course I bought some fabric!

I had a pattern in mind using a jelly roll, so my husband helped calculate if I'd have enough fabric with a  fat eighth bundle.

My Life in Pictures - Week 22

Making hard boiled eggs in my Instant Pot

Pretty clouds on the way to work

I think we're going to need a new blind...

In progress


My library rearranged ALL the stacks and used this cool thing.

Currently {June}

Reading:  My mom introduced me to a new mysteries series by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles. I just finished the first one and it was fantastic! I went and got more in the series from the library. She let me borrow the 4th omnibus, which thought was books 4 and 5, but it's actually books 9 and 10 so I'll be making another trip to the library soon.

I love books about people that thru-hike the Appalachian Trail so I started one recently. I have NO desire to hike the trail. I just like to read about it :)

Watching: I found Season One of The Great British Bake-Off on You Tube, so have been working my way through that. The title, opening and competition format are a bit different than in the later seasons.

Knitting: Continuing to slog along on Apsara and Edison. My Apsara matched an opening scene in the GBBO.

Anticipating: Slower and quiet days of summer. I'd like to start a new quilt soon, but haven't decided on a pattern or gotten fabric yet either from my stash or the store.
