Here in central Texas, we’ve been enjoying a bit of the wet stuff today…hallelujah and now I’ve had enough.
Most places when it rains, it cools off. Not so in Texas. It just feels like someone’s slung a wet wool blanket over your head and turned on a heat lamp. Rain also means that every two-legged creature that lives here (except moi, of course) will drag in fifty pounds of wet leaves and, not one to be left out, Lulu the boxer will choose to potty in the muddiest spot in the yard and subsequently track it all in. Is it possible to teach a dog to wipe their paws? I can’t manage to teach a grown man and two kids how to do that, so I’m guessing not.
This is where Lulu spent most of her day…
That’s right…under my sewing table aka the dining table and almost but not quite on top of my sewing machine pedal. I’m glad she doesn’t sport a long tail or we’d have issues.
This acupuncture business must be doing me some good as I cleared a few large branches that had the nerve to fall from the tree outside my kitchen window and still had energy left over to make several string blocks.
Sorry for the awful lighting, but it’s the best I can do in a pinch. I used a Moda Scrap bag to make these as I do not, repeat, do not save scraps. Yes, I know, go ahead and have the vapors and let’s move on, shall we. I’m probably the only quilter on the planet that detests scraps…think Brussels sprouts level hatred and you get the picture. Anyway, these were taking up space in my sewing cabinet and I was in the mood to just run fabric through my machine until it overheated and begged for mercy. I’m pretty sure I’ll sash these once I get enough to make a fairly decent sized quilt. Time will tell.
I’m linking up to the nice folks at Crazy Mom Quilts, Richard Quilts and Confessions of a Fabric Addict.
