Summer and Vacation

oh my, but I am having a lovely summer.  First off, summers are quieter - even though I work in university administration, and therefore have a 12-month employment - there are fewer late evenings and weekend/night events - and more opportunities to leave a bit early or take a long lunch. 

Somehow those opportunities turn into fabric shop forays!!!!

My sister is here for ten days, and we just spent five of them at Lake Tahoe... have you been there?

Oh so gorgeous and peaceful...this is a photo of Emerald Bay

 
Kittens were very glad when we returned home... 

And, I am oh-so-glad to post my August 1 photo of the Ginormous Hexagon Quilt...
 





Oh, boy, oh boy - just that little hole on the left side, and then some white edgings work, and I can't believe it but it will be finished !!!  Oh boy am I planning a big party!!!! 
 
Well, got to run - I got up early this am to do a bit of sewing - and sitting here with the computer is NOT sewing !!!
 
We're off to Bodega Bay today to see the little town where Hitchcock's film The Birds was made...  spooky...
 
Happy Quilting,
Kate
