Here is the Quilt I'm Working On

This is the quilt I am presently working on. There is a lot of hand quilting on this one as I am quilting a star in the little squares, quilting in the ditches for the outlines and doing different designs on the borders. It is going to take a long time as this is the queen size quilt. I am enjoying doing the hand quilting as I don't feel rush on this one. I had started to piece it together before we went to Florida in January and finished to top last month. I guess between camping, having visitors and working outdoors with DH, it took me a long time to finally put it on the quilt frame.
We have started getting tropical storm watch here in New Brunswick. We had planned on going to the Moncton area on the weekend but because of the Tropical Storm Earl, we feel we should stay home to make sure everything fares well. It has been a long time since we got a storm of that magnitude. Hopefully, we won't get too much damage.
DH has added a little railing on our back deck and it has really made it look nice. I am so happy with all the work he has done around our place this summer. We have had a very dry summer this year and our lake is very low. However, because of the very high humidity this past week. there has been several boats on the lake all week. It has been nice to see so many people using the lake this summer. We have had record breaking temperatures this week. The forecasters are telling us that by Sunday, the temperatures will come down to 19C whereas we have been having mid 30's Celsius and very humid.
Everyone have a great weekend. For those in the storm area, keep safe and dry.
