Working Weekend

John tried to plant his corn here in Billings, but the ground is still too wet. Too bad, now it is sunny and good weather for corn growing. He will be able to plant sometime this week, I'm sure.

We drove up to Red Lodge with our usual car full of projects. (Including laundry, but that's not very interesting.) We have a new track lighting system in the loft where we sew and, boy, that's nice. John pieced the newest colorway of the 6" Wheel of Mystery; it is from fabric Kate just bought at Market. The colorway is pastel. These are kits for John's Wheel of Mystery class at the Vermont Quilt Festival in July, so if you are signed up for the class, here is your project, hot off the press! We will have these available on the website and at shows, so everyone can have one if they like it.

I quilted on a black and bright 10" Wheel of Mystery top that has been traveling to classes and shows almost too long and was starting to fray along the edges. It is a pretty quilt and I got about 1/2 done before it was time to pack up and head back to Billings. What a monster thunderstorm we saw on the way back - impressive.

Well, back to Monday's sorting out and filing and searching and all that. Three boxes of new fabrics came today, so that is fun!
