I’ve lost my Blogging Mojo
July 1, 2009 § 10 Comments
For some reason, now that I have material to blog, I just don’t feel like blogging. Boo. How does this happen? It seems to take a special moment to get photo and words to marry into an interesting blog post. Maybe I’ve been too busy.
June was for swapping placemats. Can you believe it’s already July 1st? These were sent to Megan. They were made from leftover scraps – all of it – the whole enchilada. The squares in the middle are from the Old Red Barn Quilt-Along. The linen around the edge is from a vest that a friend asked me to make for his dad. The backing is from another quilt back. And the binding is from the backing of the Old Red Barn quilt. Even better… I had enough leftover scraps to make two more for myself! Wheeee. I’m dreaming of a whole table of mismatched placemats for a dinner party one day.
I was also going to tell you about our biking on Saturday. But I’ve lost the words for that too. You can see pictures of us biking, the trail, and my bike basket over on Flickr. We stopped at the Farmer’s Market and the grocery store for some ingredients to make a salad based on Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs & Ham. It was for our supper club and the theme was recipes inspired or taken from books. Everybody else’s dishes came from much more grown-up books. I couldn’t help myself. I love Dr. Seuss! We ate dinner in the garden and hung out around the fire pit after dark. Alas, no photos of that either.
Now that I’ve thoroughly bored you… I hope the eye-candy above makes up for it. And I hope the blogging Mojo finds it’s way back to my house again. Have a fun and safe Independence Day!
