Sailboats and Berries

 My Sailboat quilt is off the longarm!!! YAY!  I had a couple places that I had to fix due to tension issues but it's all finished now!  Of course, I still need to do the binding.  I have the binding cut and ready to go on but that may be a week or two before that gets done.  I have several other things going on...like some customer quilts that I need to do.  In the end I'm very pleased with how this turned out.  It measures 73x73.
Richard was off yesterday and he spent it catching up on a few things here at the house.  He also picked more berries.  :)  As off right now I have 8 quarts in the freezer.  Blackberries and raspberries!  We didn't really have enough of the raspberries to separate them so he just put them in the same bucket.  They love cobblers made from them.  I love this time of year on the farm.
I also wanted to thank everyone for the comments on my blog.  I hate that I can't really respond to them as I'm sure you all know how Blogger is not sending notifications to the email.  :(  I sure wish they would get this fixed soon.

Richard left for work about 5:30am and I'm having my coffee and pondering on what I need/should do.  LOL!  My mind says to get started on some customer quilts but my body says go back to bed.  LOL!  I didn't sleep well last night so I'm leaning towards going back to bed.  :)

Hi, I used the suggestions on the blog below to get my comments coming back to my email and it worked. Give it a try.


I love your sailboat quilt. I've been wanting to make one for a long time. I've got all the fabric for it. Other things just keep getting in the say - sigh~

Barb's method worked for me, too, Kristie. Give it a try!
That sailboat quilt is fantastic! Just makes me smile. Great job!
Oh, I wish our berries produced that well. My mouth is watering to see those luscious beauties! :)

Your sail boat quilt turned out really cute! I do hope you took time for a little snooze; no doubt you needed the rest with all you do everyday. I still wish I had a bowlful of those beautiful berries! ---"Love"
