Well, let's see, what have I been doing all this time I've been absent? One Saturday we spent the afternoon with our son and his beautiful wife on their boat on Lake Houston, and then had a very nice dinner at a restaurant on the water. Nice outing and really good company.
There has been a trip to Culver's. Well, actually two. And yes those are all three dogs in the back seat. There may have been chicken tenders ordered for them.
There has been some sewing.
LOTS of cutting,
and MORE sewing.
And even a finish! This one was sort of an experiment. I was curious how it would look to combine the more elegant fabrics from designers like Kaffe Fassett, Phillip Jacobs and Martha Negley with men's shirting fabrics. I think it worked out rather well!
The backing is some more of this wonderful Connecting Threads flannel, and the binding is a Jinny Beyer print. Altogether a most pleasing to me experience!
Here's a look at it in all its crinkly delighfulness in the early morning sunlight. (For some reason spell check is telling me delightfulness is not a word. Nonsense. If it isn't, it certainly should be a word!)
On my design wall are nine patches and rail fence blocks in the 2 1/2 inch size. There are also a couple of complete quilt tops that I need to get quilted. I will try to do better about staying up to date.
I hope you have been finding lots of things to keep you busy and happy. Here in the United States, Fall is approaching. It cannot arrive soon enough! I've had enough of Summer, thank you very much. It's time for some cooler weather. I'm thankful there is usually a change in circumstances, just when we think we can't stand it one more minute! We awoke yesterday to temperatures in the upper fifties! Heaven!
Hugs and kisses,
