Outside of the house we watched as our landscape team from WindRidge were finally able to deliver our new pool.

First they dug out a very big hole…and then filled it with the pool.

It will be a few more weeks before all the landscaping work is finish, but it’s looking great.

I taught my first Virtual Class on September 11 through the Virginia Consortium of Quilters.

The class was titled Fearless Applique and students learned 8 different ways to applique.

And….. it was grape picking time in the vineyard.

This year we had our first real crop…the red grapes will become a rosé.

The Vidal Blanc is still on the vines, and will be picked this week.
