If I were more of an "on task" person, finishing things would be alot easier. Due to the extreme heat of this past week, I've been forced to stay very close to home. And I have managed to get some much needed catch-up type sewing done.On this first one, I've gotten 7 rows of 12 blocks each joined up. I have 5 more rows counted out, but want to lay them out one by one and spread the colors around.
On this little table runner....I've been bad! It's been in the 'flimsy' stage for several years when all it needed was someone to sit down and run a few machine quilting lines. I even had the backing and batt cut...bad Finn! Now it's ready for binding. I would have that done too, but with cleaning my sewing room, the box of lights are waaaaay back in the corner against the wall. Binding will have to wait!
And then there is my Yuletide Pineapple Blossom! Love the pattern from Bonnie at Quiltville. I made up this scrappy version to be a table square(it's about 44" square)for Dec. of 2005. Yup, (embarassed grin)the backing was ready, but I never got around to quilting it. Now it's about half done. I pray I'm at least half way!! I've been quilting in the ditch, outlining all the dark....sure does take some time!
The weather has moderated slightly, a cool front came through and made it almost bearable again. More heat on the way...or so they say. Nothing new in the mailbox as yet....*VBS*
My DD was here on Thursday, and absolutely LOVED my block shower blocks! She could hardly believe how many countries they represent and all the love and good wished that came with them for her Mama Bear..*S*
