I have had a perfect excuse to spend a few days with my sewing machine. I have a shadow that will not leave my side and makes cleaning the house impossible.
I can't imagine why he thinks the world revolves around him. He is incredibly curious and has his nose in everything. Cleaning the windows on the glass doors is also senseless so I might as well sit and sew. I just have to be careful when I move from the sewing machine to the ironing board as there is a GREAT BIG detour. His family returns home tonight.
The Great Granny blocks have peaked my interest and I joined in on them. I had a jelly roll of Nature's Notebook and this project is perfect for the 2 1/2 inch strips. They go up so quickly and are really fun to make. I think I will probably make mine 4 X 5 blocks which will make it about 63x76" when it is finished with borders. Only eight more blocks to go.
I also caught up on the last couple of blocks for the Temecula Summer Star QAL. These are such cute little stars and I am using some of my Civil War fabric scraps.
Sharon at Vrooman's Quilts recently had a giveaway that I was lucky to win. There are so many wonderful prints and colors in this Petite Odile jelly roll and I am excited to make something with them. Thank you so much, Sharon. I love it.
The hummers still continue to flock to the feeders. It seems like there are more than ever this year, but it won't be long before they head off for the winter.
One last picture that I thought was cute. Can you tell that this little guy's sister wants to take care of him and share her dolls? He looks a little distressed and is wondering where his baseball is instead. ;-)
I think my shadow and I will work on my Just Takes 2 blocks today so I can get caught up before the next blocks come out on the first of the month.
