Clue 2 of ORL and a return to hiking

This morning I finished up clue 2. Flying geese…had lots of practice over summer and use on the essential triangle by Bonnie Hunter. I did not rush these but did them in short batches. This clue I was able to use a borrowed Featherweight machine. Just love sewing on it.

Link up clue 2

I sewed on some labels for three of my donated charity quilts and began machine quilting a pinned quilt. I love that I can keep this machine set up for machine quilting. Last week hunted for some backing fabrics and some smaller pieces that I can use to make another quilt. Good thing I have an extra bedroom with two twin beds that I can lay things out.

I decided to try hiking. This was the same trail I hiked last year prior to leaving AZ with all my sciatic pains. Today it went very well. Did not stop and felt like I could repeat it. Much cooler today…upper fifties and clouds. Just a little aching near sacrum probably using different muscles and subsided quickly. I have been walking 2 miles most mornings, started some strength training and adding a short walk in evening. My goal is to do my walking prior to any quilting. So far it has been working.

Sunflower quilters got to hang a few things in the clubhouse wall. Just beautiful!

Well off to do some machine quilting and finish up boarders using mitered technique.

Happy Quilting all…welcome Mystery quilters!
