My husband managed to convince me to go to the nursery with him to find a few landscaping bushes and I joined my daughter and son in law (along with sweet Emily) for a picnic in a very shady park. I also made a trip to the booth to straighten up and add a few new items.
I did manage to sew a couple of more blocks for my granny square quilt but realized that I needed a yard of red and brown to finish it up. So I headed out one more time in search of two yards of fabric and nothing else...
My self imposed fabric lock down went out the window when I walked into my local quilt store and happened upon this adorable fabric for a little boy quilt that I have been wanting to make for an old co-worker who had a baby boy in June.
The tractors, sailboats, horses, cars and all sorts of other boy things just cut right through my resistance. Aren't the sherbet colors wonderful? So very yummy. I spent last night figuring out a pattern and got started cutting out the blocks. I am hoping that once I make a dent in my cleaning and to do list I can spend some time behind my machine.
The weather is supposed to cool down a little bit this week, thank goodness. What about you? How are you holding up this summer?
