We are not in the Dog Days of Summer … we are in the throes of Heat Stroke. The heat index the other day was 105◦. And I am doing as little yard work as possible. Does that mean I have more time to sew? Not always, but I have accomplished a little.
Remember these pillowcases I made last Sep for ConKerr Cancer?
They had another challenge at the LQS and I made six more, but forgot to take their picture in my haste to get them turned in by the deadline. These were the fabrics I used and they were cute as a button – take my word for it!
And every once in awhile (like every day recently), I get chased downstairs by the thunderstorms. I have arched windows in my sewing room on the second story and lightning out those windows is too scary for me (and I have to unplug my expensive machines!). This little rain cloud I can take:
It’s when the big ones roll in that I take cover!
I did manage to quilt this one for Project Linus:
The colors are much better in person – it’s a very sweet quilt in pastels. The panto is Flora Wave.
This one for Project Linus is a Brain Teaser though … how in the world will I quilt this fabric? The center is printed fabric, not pieced.
I’m only up to edge-to-edge pantos, no custom quilting, and don’t know whether to go with squares or bubbles or something wavy? I’ll have to ponder it for a little while then bite the bullet and get ‘er done!
