August 2020

Before August slips away, I should get a blog post in the record book.  The month has really gone quickly, although I don't have a lot to show for it.

The granddaughters and I enjoyed an extended summer of sewing and sharing our baking skills with each other.  They all left last weekend for their respective colleges.  I told them that I would need the next six months to sort out my sewing studio again.  lol

Our Gridster Bee block for this month was Room for Squares from Zen Chic.  It was a free paper pieced download. I just love Linda's color choices and you can check out what all the blocks look like together by visiting her on Instagram @quiltlady63.  These were my four blocks.  She requested that we not sew them together so she could mixt them up. 

Our tortoise eggs were busily hatching this month too.  These never cease to amaze me.  They have all gone to their adoptive homes.  

Although I haven't managed to do a lot of sewing this month, I did start putting some blocks together from a kit that has been sitting in my sewing room.  I really like these Moda fabrics and I am enjoying the blocks.  

The days are definitely getting shorter and I've noticed leaves changing colors and dropping.  It must be the colder temps we had a few weeks ago.  However, this week our summer finally arrived with higher temps and fires.  I do not know how the firefighters can battle the fires in such scorching temperatures.  They do a heroic job!

There is always a way to stay cool.....
