We've had grandchildren for the last few weeks so there has not been a lot of sewing going on here. We have had lots of fun water time in spite of an exceptionally cool August. My August month in my Temperature Quilt looks pretty boring. The month started out warm and then the coastal fog rolled in ..... for weeks. We are in for a few days of warmer temps this week.
September is often our warmest month as the Santa Ana winds descend upon us so look forward to seeing some reds next month.
In spite of the cooler temps, the little ones enjoyed
We had a lot of fun with art supplies - including decorating ourselves in some cases......ahhh...two year olds!
I had the urge to stitch once everyone was back home. I should have been cleaning the house, but I quietly slipped into my quiet sewing space and added a few blocks to my selvage project. These are so quick and perfect for satisfying that sewing itch.
Somehow, my selvage stash seems to be getting bigger! They were all nicely packed down and now they are all fluffed up and twice as big. Hmmmm.....that wasn't the plan.
I've seen so many fun pincushions on IG this month and really NEED to make a few more. Of course, I have the perfect excuse with the annual Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade starting next week. There are lots of great prizes so be sure to check it out HERE.
The garden has done so well this summer - finally. Right now we are enjoying the tomatoes, beans and zucchini. Tomato canning went on over the weekend by my husband - his first canning experience. He did a great job too. Do you think I can pass it on to him now???? lol
