OK everyone – it is now 18 days and it will be July! Time is flying by but the hot days and mornings are not flying by fast enough for me. I do not like the heat even when it is in the 90’s, so you can imagine how much I detest this summer. Since the first of May it has been 100+ and the pictures speak better than words ever could. Additionally the weather forecast is not looking good for rain the rest of the year here in South Texas. Maybe this winter it will snow again – won’t bother me! A picture speaks better than words!
I have been working on my Lori Smith’s Fit to Frame – Pattern 6 with Jaydee. She has finished 3 blocks and I have completed 2! (Hum – too many projects going at one time is my excuse! LOL! These are Jaydee’s blocks.
I changed the bottom leaves on my Block 1. I am working from a grid sheet (background fabric) for the first 6 blocks. It is easier for me to handle for the small 6″ blocks.
I have Block 1 of Lilly Rosenberry ready for applique, but will not start on it yet as I have 36 each 3/4″ circles to prepare. When I selected the fabric (1895 Hoffman Batiks) for this project I wanted something other than red and green. I think I will really like it. Now to finish making the 36 circles!
I have been working on my Bats and Boos Cross Stitch project and working on the pumpkins. I am finding that I really enjoy CS and seem to be able to focus and relax when working on B&B’s. So I will be spreading my evening hand work time between these 3 projects. (I need to join a Cross Stitch Party).
In The Garden is hanging around waiting, waiting, waiting. The Squirrel project is coming right along! I am ahead of the game! I do not have a quilt that I am currently hand quilting, but I figured this is hand work and maybe it will count for both HQAL and Slow Sunday Stitching! Do check out the ladies who are hand quilting today!
Hugs, Nanette Have a wonderful week, happy stitching but do not watch the News, fill up your vehicle, or buy food – it is depressing! Time to make a Red Quilt!
This Hand Quilt Along is an opportunity for hand quilters and piecers to share and motivate one another. We post every three weeks, to show our progress and encourage one another. If you have a hand quilting project and would like to join our group contact Kathy at the link below.
