I thought I was going to attend the Greater Ann Arbor Quilt Guild Biennial Quilt Show on Saturday, but instead I ended up hanging out around the house while the oldest daughter's husband and his friends moved their household belongings into our barn and garage. The had sold their house and it was closing on August 11. Part of the conditions of the sale were that the buyers were going to take immediate occupancy. The kids have also put an offer on a house but it won't close for a few more weeks, and one of the seller's conditions was that they would remain in the home for 30 days after closing. So they needed a place to put all of their belongings.
Before they started the ordeal I worked in the garden. I mowed along the chicken house, flower beds, and around the berry bushes where the big mower cannot reach, I pulling weeds mainly thistle, until the rain began pouring down. I also trimmed trees in the orchard. Once I was finished I decided to work on my July RSC blocks.
I did manage to get the crown and thorn block finished.
