Summer vacation

Summer vacation started one week ago and to get the ultimate summer feeling I painted my toe nails. I really do like to walk barefoot and from the beginning of May until the end of September I try not to wear socks.
Almost all week we spent at our cottage to get away from neighbours and traffic, and we were lucky enough to have sunny days! So I took my New York quilt and sat down to quilt for some afternoons.
I am almost done now. As you can see the threads that keep the three layers together are mostly removed. Only those parts were you see them I have to quilt. I started to quilt the border also. Do you see the words New York in it? To get those letters onto the quilt I made a template first.
To prepare myself for winter I have one sock done. I don't wear them in my shoes, but when I come home from work I like to wear hand knitted socks. They are warm and comfortable. On to the second one!

Lovely pink summer toes. I love them. And your quilt is grand - how fun to have all those memories wrapped up there. And I haven't forgotten our visiting plans.
