“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most
beautiful words in the English language.”
I have to agree with Henry. I’m happiest during the summer, when the afternoons stretch into the
evening. More light for quilting! More competition from the weeds!
I’m currently failing MISERABLY at getting my sewing area in any kind of order, and have not sewn
nearly enough to get happy feels from fabric (so it’s a good thing that it’s summer).
My husband and I are hitting the road this month to visit his family in Indianapolis, and the Dairy Barn
in Athens, OH is on the way, so I’ll be able to stop for my every-other-year opportunity to see the
quilts that are in Quilt National: https://dairybarn.org/quilt-national/
It’s a good five-to-six hour drive to Athens, so a little far for a day trip, but if you’re in the area?
Totally worth it. I always leave inspired and filled with wonder.
