While there has been lots of knitting and sewing going on… I have nothing in a substantial, finished enough state to show you. Soon, my dears.
Smarty Pants Eli on a rare sunny day.
Every day I wake up, look out the window, cast a longing glance at the thermometer and wonder what the day will be like. I feel like posting a play-by-play, sun and temperature meter each day. 51F degrees this morning with just a hint of sunshine. I know we always say around here, it’s not really summer until after the 4th of July. But this year, I’m exceptionally doubtful that summer will ever arrive. This weekend is supposed to be nice. I’m hoping!
The roses blooming on a gray & dreary day. Let’s not talk about how puny the squash starts look!
Coming next week… Border #2 of the Medallion Quilt-Along. Then, for the month of August we have 2 borders planned. The first one is easy. I’m thinking that I will try to post the August 3a border around July 15th and the August 3b border around August 1st so that if you need or want to work ahead or spread out the work over the summer, you can.
For my swap partner in the Doll Quilt Swap #4 sitting in a spot of sun.
Also, the Internet has way too many temptations and inspirations. Flickr is dangerous enough in leading me down the path of time destruction! Check these links out for yourself and say it isn’t so. Now… set the timer and don’t waste the afternoon, like I so often do, bouncing around the Internet!
