It’s been a summer of change and upheaval for me and that has meant not much quilting got done. (Since I can’t bear to post without a picture, here’s an old photo.) I started a new job in a city two and a half hours away. Until my husband finds a job in the area, he is staying in our house. Luckily my job is only 30 hours a week and I can come home Thursday nights for long weekends together. But I’m still settling in to a new job as Teen Librarian and a new, small apartment. I’m slowly finding my feet and am finding that I can actually think about starting to sew again. Hmmm, maybe I need to design and create a wall hanging for my Teen Area in the library. . . .
The one constant this summer has been the garden. It never got too hot or too dry. So we are getting bumper crops of Swiss chard, carrots, green beans, and, of course, tomatoes. My weekends home seem to be spent in the kitchen dealing with nature’s bounty. But the freezer is filling up nicely, and I know I will really enjoy having all of those wonderful veggies available through the winter!
