Bits of Sewing Time


I stayed away from blogger due to the HACK and I hope things work out now with the given time away.  I am extremely wary of any mail, post, reads, etc. due to this unfortunate incident.  BUT, I don't want to shut down the blog because of some one elses heartless deed.

I used bits of time to get all the stars done for the guild round robin challenge.  I've been doing a little traveling and family time while 'off grid'.

With this oppressive heat wave keeping everyone hiding indoors, I used the time to get them into rows.

  Some strip piecing that will be sub-cut to complete four 16-patches for the corner settings.  Then I will work on getting this round (really borders and I hate borders) added.  There is one more round that must have flying geese and I plan to just make corner 'Dutchman's Puzzle' blocks.  As long as I don't drag my feet (or think of them as borders), I should get that done this week.  It's going to be a BIG quilt!

  My furkids soak up the morning cooler temp and then crawl inside to lay near a fan.  In the evening they take back to the porch.

I picked up 5 commissions (all queen size) which will keep me quite busy, so I am so sad that I will have to sit out the rest of the year's Blog Hops that I like to take part in.  Hey, I need to prepare some extra income for the increase of oil prices to heat this monster size house this winter.

Stay Safe,

Sewingly Yours,

Happy Weekend


I hope you all have a safe and happy 4th of July weekend.  I chose not to travel on this Holiday weekend, but will enjoy the time at home.

My furkids have taken to us enjoying the early morning on the porch as the birds begin to sing - the only noise of the day - it's actually music to us.  Still moving things around and organizing thru the day, albeit slowly with the heat.  Then once it cools down in the evening the gardens get tended and lawns mowed.  Then it's the furkids and me unwinding on the porch until dark.

There will be playing with pinwheels - perfect for the 4th don't you think?

More ready to go into rows.

Although my red roses came out early and lasted for only a few days, (and nothing blue happening) - the white flowers are giving us quite the showing.


Sewingly Yours,
