Ha,ha! Of course I'm kidding. I'm really cleaning the basement and garage. Fun times.
I did manage to finish a couple of things. First, there were these babies:
These are the triangle blocks for my RSC14 quilt. Red and white always look so happy together, don't you think? I also did the cutting for the Odd Fellow's blocks, but haven't assembled them yet. I'm not sure I'll keep the polka dotted block on the left. Looks a little too "Raggedy Ann" to me.
I also made up one test block for the Dancing Nines quilt:
|This block is much straighter than it looks in pictures!|
Finally, our cool and wet summer has had some good side effects:
This astilbe hasn't bloomed in years (literally), but has tons of flowers right now. I forgot how pretty the blooms are! I think I even forgot what color it was supposed to be, but I'm loving it right now.
I want to take just a second here at the end of the post to say how much I appreciate all the comments people have been leaving on this little blog. It's very gratifying! I try to answer every one (sometimes a couple of days later because life gets in the way). If you are a no-reply blogger, please know that I appreciate your comments too, but sometimes can't find you online to reply.
Thanks for stopping by, and everyone enjoy your summer weekend!
