I wanted the quilting to look like heat waves...swirling and radiating. Like a mirage in the distance. I used a wool batting that I realy liked, but it was so strange and lumpy in places. My daughter said she didn't think the bride would like the quilt because it smelled just too funny. Yeah, the wool did smell, well wooly. But after it's wash it crinkled up so nice and didn't stink anymore. I think it turned out lovely. I think I will keep a spare quilt top on hand from now on, just for times when a gift is needed. The wedding was lovely. It was out at the Desert park and began right as the sun dipped below the west McDonalds. Very nice.
The heat has broken! I have always been an autumn gal. I just love it when the weather begins to cool and there is a slight nip in the air. Makes me think of cinnimon apples and pumpkin soup. Well, the weather has finally broken. I was driving to school Friday to drop the kids off and was thinking to myself, "wow I need to bring a sweater Monday" When I got home I looked to see how "cold" it was...89F that is really not too cold, is it? My blood has just thinned so much living here in the heat. Camping is going to be interesting this year, but I am sure we will still give it a shot.
