last weekend we went camping at andrew molera state park in big sur. when we were there 2 weekends prior, it was definitely sweater weather but this past weekend it was like summer. no complaints.

let's be frank, i've spent a long time brewing up this quilt and it's been awhile since my last post. summer has come to a close and i'm embarrassed to see autumn arrive with such little progress to show. but, i assure you that my delinquent hiatus from quilt making is not without reason! as it turns out, it's awfully difficult if not painstakingly frustrating when you can't lay out your quilt in a shoebox-sized apartment. know what i mean? let me clarify - our bathroom is so small you could "stay seated" and wash your hands in the sink at the same time. true story, but it is what it is. in any case, i postponed working on the quilt until i paid a visit to my parents home in sonoma where, much to my mother's dismay, i overtook their dining room for an entire weekend. hello gorgeous wooden floors and expansive square footage! hello my pretend studio with vaulted ceilings! don't mind if i do occasionally look up from my work to take in the rolling hillside vistas! what's that dad? an affogato for a late afternoon pick-me-up? yes please, i'll take two scoops of homemade vanilla ice cream in my espresso!

a weekend with my parents is so good, but i digress. the point: i got a lot done. so now the hand quilting begins...
