Rain, Rain, Rain
We are seeing some sun today, but June has been almost as rainy as May (and April). This is looking off my front porch and that front field has been nearly half underwater for the past 3 months.
With the rain, I worked on catching up on some things. The 'Two Step' mystery blocks. Yes, I managed to make large blocks without fainting.
The newest blocks for 'Patchwork Sampler' - my savior! Small blocks with tiny pieces.
I have all the sections done for the next 'Yankee Diary' block and need to get this stitched . Not sure I like the backward flag, but I know they had them in this era's quilts.
And SARAH has a sew-along with the popular 'temperature' quilts. I will start mine on Summer Solstice and will be using this color chart as a quide. I have gotten very behind on my hand stitching and need to reform to the machine gets turned off at set time and only needle/thread in hand time after.
I need to pull my color matching scraps - found an empty shoe box tote for this and have my hexie papers ready.
This is were I will be for Father's Day - Vending. I'm hoping the weather holds. I've scheduled just one show a month until November and this will be my last year vending.
