My on-line group, Sunshine Quilt Guild, focuses on making donation quilts for children and we also have a monthly block lottery. Participants make blocks in sets of two (or more) – one block goes to make a Sunshine Quilt by a member that volunteers to do that and one goes into the *pot* for that month’s winner – the pot is winner-take-all. The theme for this month is *novelties* - and that’s my favorite month!
I’ve been making these half-log cabin blocks:

But I had to stop because of another thunderstorm. I always unplug my machines during lightning. Hopefully, it will end soon.
This is a photo that I took yesterday of a nearby field that is usually dry. The dark area near the egret is not a shadow, it’s standing water that the egret intends to fish in. Good luck with that, little birdie … I'm betting you'll find lots of bugs, lizards and froggies that will be pretty tasty!
