Happy Saturday Everyone 😊
We actually have blue skies with white puffy clouds this morning. However, I expect that will change shortly. South Florida is in its typical summer weather pattern of heat and afternoon thunderstorms. That is a good reason to stay inside and create.
But first, let me give you a recap of the last few weeks...
I had participated in Sherry’s A Quilting Life Block of the Month last year. The fabric I used was a fat eighth bundle and part of a layer cake of Autumn Woods by Kate & Birdie for Moda. This fabric is no longer offered (anywhere I’ve found) so this is as far as I’ve gotten.
Sashing and an inner border
I’ll just look for something that will coordinate and hope it works.
Val who blogs at Val’s Quilting Studio is hosting a fun Eye-Spy Swap. I watched from the sidelines last summer but decided to join this year. You can read all about the swap, including instructions here. She has a few spots left open so why don’t you consider joining us?
The fabrics I selected were from my stash…yay!
They are stacked, packaged and ready to go in the mail today. Val has opened a Flikr group for those playing along. There are so many cute fabrics that I’m sure we are all going to have some fun eye-spy quilts soon.
My friend Kelly and I spent last Saturday sewing our May and June blocks for Pat Sloan’s Let’sGo Camping Block of the Month.
My blocks are on top and hers on the bottom.
Speaking of friends…I joined Cheryll, from Gone Stitchin’, for her Friday Night with Friends virtual get together. It’s a night of crafting - whatever you enjoy doing. You link up over the weekend and then visit others to see how they spent their Friday night.
So, what did I do?

As you can see from all the orange and red, it is HOT already
The knee surgery went well. The doctors and the physical therapists are pleased with my progress but I AM NOT!!!! I still can’t drive and honestly, I know I’m not ready to yet. My amazing husband has been an excellent nurse and driver 😊 Cabin fever and all…
We are off to run a few errands and then as long as there isn’t any lightening this afternoon I’ll be sewing. What will you be doing? Hope is it enjoyable whatever it is!
