A phenom that has taken 70 years to occur - the Summer Solstace and the Full Moon - the Strawberry Moon. June’s Full Strawberry Moon got its name because the Algonquin tribes knew it as a signal to gather ripening fruit. It was often known as the Rose Moon in Europe and the Honey Moon.
This photo is from the NASA site because when I went out on the porch to try and photo the moon over the back of our mountain a freak lightening/thunder/torrential rain storm went thru. The furkids sat on the porch thru it all while I hid inside.
It's taken me a day to recover from the weekend. I did get my circles done and two full hexie flowers. I make them individual and then sew the parts together - so there are actually a lot of parts made, just need to sit and put them into flowers now. These were great projects to take on the road - easy to travel with, easy to set down to tend to business, and then easy to pick back up and go again.
After tackling the laundry, dishes, and some dusting/vacumming - I prepped fabrics for this project. It is the Fold'n Stitch Wreath by Poor Hourse Quilt Designs. It's the first time I have used the Bosal fuse foam. I have some super heavy weight Peltex too - going to try this pattern using both mediums and see which works better.
And some luck and wins to share - with thank yous. My luck was winning the 50-50 at the car show I vended at - yeah, I know.
I received this lovely package from K's Quilting Korner for the Hands2Help. The candy is long gone (gave it to my brother) - the little bag is full of the small clover clips which I use for a lot of things. Just love the coneflower fabric and plan to make myself a zip wristlet bag.
And this package came from Podunk Pretties for the random draw from the link up for the Back Porch Bloom sew along. Everything useful and who doesn't just love fabric
Of course in the middle of a heat wave, I am getting ready for Christmas. I have the opening day, so best be on time.
