Eclipse Day 2017

Today was a fun day, wasn’t it? Although the eclipse was less than full here in western New York, the event created a festive atmosphere in the dog days of August. I snapped an over the shoulder shot just as the action was starting — don’t worry, I took the picture without looking, so my vision is safe.

The sun at about 1:15pm as the takeover begins.

The college campus where I work is about to explode with life and I can’t wait. Here’s a pic from this morning — the proverbial calm before the storm.

The first group of Freshmen arrive tomorrow. They don’t know it, but they are going to love it here.

The community garden is bursting with goodies. This weekend we enjoyed our first home-grown ear of corn. Delicious!

And, finally, the floor in my family room  has been overtaken by a rainbow. I’m so close to being finished, but alas, I’ve run out of white scraps. Off to the fabric store sometime this week to bring this scrappy Drops of Rainbow quilt top to completion.

    Beautiful photos Sandy. It is so neat to see how the eclipse brought happiness to people across the whole country. We were lucky enough to see a 75% eclipse here in PA. 🌗
    Your quilt is full of happiness too 🙂

    My goodness, that is one very clever design!! I love Rainbow quilts, flags, etc., have a large collection of Rainbow quilt pictures… (I’m also a devotee of scrap quilts too!)
    And your Rainbow quilt is _the_ most delightfully original one I’ve yet seen!
    You know the design that makes you say “Why ever did I never think of that myself”? Well that is this quilt of yours, for me.
    Brava! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!!
