and sad words at that. This is one of the last pictures on my camera before today. Needless to say, the batteries needed re-charged, much the same as me! *VBS* Deader than a doornail!
Luckily summer came to the Valley, and my windowboxes sported petunias this year, in a lively purple. And now I remember why I DON'T plant petunias while living here. They get so very leggy, and the constant wind beats them to death!! Back to the wax begonias next year!
I have been sewing. Not like a "mad woman", but sewing. I had these blocks finished except for pressing, and I have managed to get them together into a top. I'm hoping to machine quilt it this long weekend, for some grandchild or another. Hmmmm? Now who loves FROGS???
And I have been working on these. The centers were printed as a larger square, I cut away the extra blue, and added some scrappy 2.5" strips. The blocks are now 8.5" and think it will make a nice sized quilt, as there are quite a few. Other than that, I've been doing a bit of blog hopping, and have found Deb Rowden's Thrift Shop Quilts. Love, love, love what she's doing with scraps, as well as her love of the really odd ball tops. Definitely is helping my mojo!! Have a wonderful, and safe Labor Day Weekend everyone. My thoughts and prayers are with all the folks up and down the eastern seaboard, be safe.
Ideas for next Christmas
