Progress on many things.............

I sewed 6 more blocks and cut them into quarters for the Bento Box quilt.  Then I assembled 3 blocks from some of the quarter blocks.  I have 10 more blocks to sew and cut into quarters so I hope I can get a few more sewn today.  I also have to mix 2 batches of cookie dough and vacuum the basement to prepare for Monday.

My living room has stacks of quilts and quilt tops that I will be taking to the workshop Sunday.

The coffee table is piled too and after taking this photo I pulled a bunch of wallhangings and they are piled on the couch now.  I need to figure out a way to pack them so that I have them in order and separated by categories.
This Aster is growing in the crack between the sidewalk and the steps.  I kept meaning to cut it down but when I saw it forming buds I decided to let it bloom first and then I'll cut it.

The ones that come up from seed aren't as dark of a purple as the original plant.  The bees and other insects like them just as well though.
