Quiet Weekend at Home

It has been quiet on the homefront if not in the world outside.  Kurt and Ryan arrived in Pittsburg last night.  Not the best timing to be sure.  I showed Kurt a map of the area and let him know which parts he should stay away from.  Ryan is supposed to sleep on campus tonight.  He has a sleeping bag and will be paired up with a current student.  Kurt has a hotel, and it seems to be away from the crime scene.  I know that I worry too much, but it just keeps getting scarier by the day.  Anyway, right now they should be at an information session for the college of engineering.  I haven't heard much, but Ryan always sends a picture of a streetlamp whenever he is away. 
Sydney was at a slumber party last night which left me home alone.  That never happens!  I celebrated by getting some carryout sushi and eating ice cream straight out of the container while streaming romantic comedies on Netflix.  Then I sewed lots and lots of string blocks.  After tearing off the paper this morning I laid them out to get an idea of which colors to make next.  I guess I got carried away with pink and green.  No definite plans for these blocks yet.  Right now I'll just try to even up the block count a bit. 
Despite 20 hours in the car last weekend I got amazingly few diamond hexies sewn.  Most of the driving was at night and I was enjoying an audiobook from the library to pass the time.  Even a couple of hexies will still make a nice addition to the slowly growing collection.  
I was out first thing this morning at early voting.  There were quite a few people out already and so many campaign signs!  It will be nice when all the adds end after the election.  It has cooled off around here and feels just like fall! Such a nice change.  I was running yesterday morning and felt almost chilly.  That never happens in Florida.  I'm going to enjoy it while it lasts.  
I'm going to link up with Slow Stitching Sunday and Oh Scrap.  It's been ages since I was able to do that.

I love those string blocks - they're going to make a beautiful quilt! I hope all is well with your son's visit to Pittsburgh. I sure understand your worry. And, yes, can't wait for political ad season to be over with! Hope you're enjoying some Sunday afternoon stitching today!

Those string blocks look fabulous all playing nicely together. Hexies are a great travelling buddy, aren't they.

Its so nice that you can spend some quiet time home alone like that on rare occasions. A balm for the soul, especially in these trying times. I know your guys will stay safe, but the timing and incident couldn’t have been worse. Yes, maybe tempers will cool after elections. We can always hope! Enjoy your slow stitching, Angela!

hahaha. I love that you posted about the hand sewing. I can completely relate. in my mind Epp sounds like a good idea and I enjoy it when I get going, but hard to get going with it. hugs.

Your blocks look like faceted jewels to me.I’m struck that your son sends pictures of lampposts when he is away. Something touching about that. Are they day or night photos or a mix? If night, we certainly need the light in these dark times, don’t we?

Mimi said...

Beautiful strings, very unusual. Mstery to me: who are Kurt and Ryan and Sydney, and what crime scene? Was it near to you?
