I have been hiking - made a personal best for a hike with friends to Boulder Basin and the Boulder City ghost town. 7 miles round trip - all uphill with about 2,300 feet elevation gain. Glorious, glorious trip, with all the wildflowers in bloom. Well worth the bruised toenails from slipping around on the shale rock.

I did get my Autumn Table Runner quilted, the binding on, and completely sewn down. It's on my table now - I think I'll just leave it there until Thanksgiving, lol!
I also got three Halloween table runners all completed for my Etsy shop, and am now working on two long, long (72-inch) table runners for Christmas. They are more traditional with poinsettias, lots of gold leaf and sparkling red and green. Those are quilted and now just need binding, which with the 180-inch diameter for each one, will take a lot of evening tv viewing to get those done!

Today I am quilting a quilt I made as a Tester for a new pattern designer. Can't wait to show the entire quilt . . . just waiting for the word! Having fun with that one. Then I have two more quilts to quilt this week, and I can then start a new project for August. Whew. Guess I'd better remember to pay bills, since the 1st is in just a couple of days.
Hope you are enjoying your summer. I imagine it goes by too quickly for all of us!
