It’s kind of like don’t look at the TV while we show you the Olympic results, but this involves me whinnnnnning!!!! IT’S TOO DARN HOT….108 for a few days and no cooling down. Kind of like a blast furnace going….ok, I’m better, thanks!!!
The Dots were here a couple days for a sleepover, always fun. There’s was lots of playing and swimming in the pool. Then there was some cleaning I had to do. Ok, don’t judge me, but I enlisted Little Dot. He is really good at dusting the stairs and he even really, really likes doing it. So it made a yucky job really fun. Instead of a Dust Buster I have a Dust Buddy :-)!!!!!
Is it only me, but when it comes to getting backs and batting cut and ready for my quilts to be quilted I am a huge procrastinator!!! Plus, both these quilts have so much white, I clipped and clipped threads from the back but it just seemed I didn’t make any progress. They are packed up and off to be quilted.
months giftie is this cute summer pillow, not made by me, but a crafter at one of our local handcrafted stores. All you need to do is make a Christmas gift and link up to Darlene’s blog on August 31st and your name will be in the drawing. I decided today to make a few simple Ten Minute Table Runners. I won the gingerbread fabric at quilt camp and the red fabric was 40% off at JoAnns, so three very reasonable Christmas gifts. You can find the tutorial here. Here’s a close up of the gingerbread guys. They even have a little glitter on them. Such a fast, easy gift!!!
Wishing you all a great weekend, and thanks again for listening to me whine :-)!!!
