We do need a bit more winter and definitely more rain before our rainy season ends next month. If you are sewing along with us, how are your colors? Be sure to check out the other participants on IG at #sistempquilt18 #tempquilt2018 and #temperaturequilt2018
Slowly, but surely, my On Ringo Lake quilt has come together. I had it all spread out on the living room floor as that was the only place big enough to put it all down. Thus, I HAD to work on it to clean up the floor! Good planning, right???? Sewing in bits and spurts, I finally finished it yesterday. I really love the way it turned out. Now...to get it quilted.
Of course, all was not easy sailing with a pup who thought the new flooring was quite interesting. Need I say that there were many pieces displaced in a short amount of time?
The weather has been so warm and inviting all to enjoy the great outdoors. The roses, despite still blooming, needed to be pruned and sprayed for the year. Three days later over 100 bushes are done. Doesn't it look "wintery" now??? lol
We took a stroll on the beach and were amazed at all of the debris that has washed down from the recent rains and slides post fire.
The tide was out and Toby enjoyed the tide pools.
A bit more emergency sewing went on here. A special little one lost her first tooth.
Our Gridster Bee Queen this month is Elizabeth and her request was for food basket blocks. She provided the food fabrics and we made the rest with our choice of fabrics.
I've had some really fun mail lately. The first comes from Sherry. I had remarked about the darling Mah Jongg fabric that she was using to create cute little origami coin bags. I was completely surprised and delighted when one arrived in my mail. The little purse is like a puzzle! She placed a shiny copper penny in one pocket and it ends up in BOTH pockets when they are opened.
Five of us formed a group called Sewing With Friends a few years ago. We have done row robins and round robins in the past and this year we are swapping fabric postcards. This one arrived from Lynette. The colors are so pretty and the construction is perfect.
Is everyone looking forward to the Olympics? What is your favorite event. It's a tough choice between the ice skating and skiing for me.
