Hope all my American friends had a safe and lovely July 4th. This is one Holiday weekend I just do not travel and prefer to stick close to home. I held down the fort while everyone else went to parades, waded thru crowds, sat in traffic jams, and put up with all the noise.
Paper work and house work with a walk or two outside with my furry companions suited me just fine. But I managed a bit of stitching.
There were two blocks for the Monday Mini's with Temecula Quilt Co - The geese and broken dishes centers. These are small so they are being worked with the small bits and skinnies left over from othe CW projects.
The limey greens don't photo well, but the next rosette for the temperature quilt is done. 72,76,82,81,79,80,77
We are a lot cooler than other areas, but that is fine with me. AND I love that our nights dip into the 60's which makes for better sleeping.
Since the tub of blues was sitting and waiting to be played with for Kevin's Mystery - I pulled a few smaller pieces that were a bit 'flowery' for that project and made up my next four piggies for RSC17.
The 'scrap problem' is more my 'tame it' problem and it seems every time I get things a little under control...........
more comes in the door. I really am not complaining though! But when someone says they have some things in their car and you go to help pick up - it's a trunk full.
I sorted out the table clothes, bed spreads and comforters to be washed and then donated locally. The huge bag of batt scraps has found a home. Now the fabrics to be sorted and they are all large pieces. But this is more than I can process, so their sorting will go into my 'list of friends needs'. We are, also, having a sit and sew with one of the class groups to make library totes - we are using as much of this as possible.
More of the donation that Moe thought was the purrfect place to take a nap. I think he tried out every pile and box - but this 'was just right'.
Bella preferred to hid out in the kitchen. Actually I have kept the two a bit 'stoned' with catnip as the noisy fireworks all around us since Friday was taking it's toll on all of us.
Today is a local run-around errands kind of day (need groceries too), but hopefull I can get a block or two made later - and a little fabric sorted.
