Here we are at the end of July 2016! WOW! Only one more month of hot weather and maybe we will all have a Fall Season that will begin in September! We have had a break in the 50 days of no rain and now are 5″ richer. Tomorrow the hot weather will return and I am hoping that the air will be a little dryer and not quite so humid, but who knows. I would have never guessed that we would have rain at the end of July and it is good that we are heading into the hottest month with green grass.
I am experiencing a “little” cabin fever with this hot weather, just the opposite of cabin fever that can hit in the winter. Maybe it is the weather change this week, but I have no desire to do anything, much less start a new piecing project, or start quilting on a quilt. Maybe tomorrow will bring me some drive and the desire, but for now it is movie time and work on some hand applique. We were scheduled for a trip to Durant, OK for 2 weeks, but somehow we realized that sitting in a 36 foot fifth wheel in 100 degree weather would be even worse than staying home. At least we have the Studio to come to each day and work on our hobbies. So that trip will be in September (darn) but it was the smart thing to do!
I have completed my current (not counting today’s) Circa 2016 blocks, finished Block 4 with CWB (Bountiful Life for me) and began working on my medallion on Brinton Hall quilt that I started late last year.
Cathy has finished Block 5 and progressing very well. I like the fabrics she used for her block and the changes she made. Remember – she is making this quilt with 10 1/2″ blocks – you go girl!
Here are my Circa Blocks through the 22nd of July.
Stonefields Segment 4 is WIP, but I have finished 6 of the 12 blocks for this segment. I incorporated some new fabrics and made the “mirror” block the same, but fussy cut 3 different flowers from Barbara Brackman’s Ladies Album fabric.
Well, this is it for now. Maybe tomorrow will bring a better day – I am still dealing with the lovely “acid rebound” from quitting the Aciphex. It is getting better, but a very slow progress. I am hoping that by September things will be even better! Have a great day and keep on stitching! Stay cool!
