I got my sewing mojo going early yesterday! I worked on strips sets for Marmalade - this is an easy and fun quilt pattern. I actually got ALL the strips sets sewn and pressed, cut them all up into subunits, and even began to stitch the subunits together.
Yesterday I spotted a HUGE butterfly on one of our two butterfly bushes. We've planted a butterfly bush at almost every house we've owned, but this is the first time we've really had success. They are growing and blooming like crazy!
We are officially in the HOT part of summer here in Alabama. I read an article a couple of days ago that listed the states in order of how miserable their summers are. Alabama is Number 4 most miserable. I'd have to agree! HOT and sticky. At the bottom of the list - the more pleasant summers - were Hawaii, Oregon, and Washington state. After living in Alabama my entire life, you'd think I'd be used to it by now? Hubby is much more acclimated than I am because he is outside much more. Now that the July 4th holiday is behind us, I think I might be heading to the pool more - it was very crowded over the weekend.
So what's up for today? I'm thinking it might be a handwork day... maybe a little appliqué (RFLQ) and maybe a bit of hand piecing (Farmer's Daughter and Bring Me Flowers). Sounds like a plan!
Have a great one!
