Greetings – now we are in the throws of summer for the day – a wonderful 95 degrees for today – then a change tomorrow. I am loving this roller coaster ride! I am getting back in the groove of sewing and working on my projects and daily routine of our retirement life is absolutely wonderful! I guess I have finally decided that home is the best place to be and take a day trip to get away! At least this is where I am now. Once summer really hits all long distance travel is off the list – just too hot!
OK now on to where I am in catching up Susan’s SAL! I have all of the Mini Dresden’s completed and last week we were to do the Spools! I cut out all of the 23 blocks (not difficult at all) and yesterday I completed the Red Spools. Today I will complete the remaining 13 blocks and be caught up for 2 weeks. This will make time for Star of Chamblie!
I purchased another pattern that I want to make (OK – I am dreaming I understand), but it is so much fun to look forward to making new and different quilts. Some difficult, some just for fun, and some to drive me absolute nuttier than I already am! I happen to see Monterrey Medallions on a blog post and just could not pass it up. I love Atkinson Designs Monterrey Medallions. Just could not let it go so I ordered it from Amazon!
Well, this is all I have to show for my few days of ‘sewing’ there would be more, but…..
UPDATE: I have finished all the Spools – Green and Gold make 23 for this project!
Have a great day and rest of your week and enjoy sewing and quilting, I know I am loving being back into my routine!
