It was almost twilight when I went outside to take pictures. After hanging a rope across the fence dividing the patios my neighbors & I share, I took pix of the front and back. I love the way the leftover pieces look chained together in the floating border. I didn't try to make them go all the way around, but instead started two strips at one corner and pieced them across the top and down the side as far as they would go and the same down the side and across the border. It adds character, don't you think?
With summer winding down, my time will only be my own for a couple more weeks. Then Jacob comes back three days a week when my son-in-law starts school again. Jacob will be in daycare two days a week to start him getting used to being around other kids and to give me a little more flexibility to be working on my own school work and quilting projects. This weekend Ali & Ross went out with friends to celebrate her birthday and Jacob spent the night with me. I guess he has spent so much time in my glider with me when he was little, he thinks it's his! Every time I turn around now he's climbing into my chair and reaching for the remote. What a little man!
