Chris and I are pretty routine people. We don’t travel a lot because we like home. So Saturday was a big day for us. We took a day trip to Roanoke (3 hours) to attend a surprise 30th anniversary party for friends. It was a beautiful day for a drive and since we were there we stopped by to visit my Aunt Martha and Uncle Geoff (on my Dad’s side). My Dad’s family could have made up an advanced degree course in family dysfunction but my Dad and Geoff kept a close relationship. He and Chris get along great and we always have fun visits with them even though they don’t occur very often.
The anniversary party was so mice. Mile and Cindy have a great family and I met a new quilter! Their DIL is a young quilter and apparently totally addicted. I gave her my contact info so hopefully I’ll hear from her and connect with another quilter….because there are never enough quilters!
I did some shibori stitching in the car so I have a few more pieces ready to dye in a few weeks.
Yesterday I made a little more progress on Lura’s Choice. Here are the 4 latest blocks. If I get 2 more done today I will be half way through the sampler blocks.
