I write. I quilt. I cook. I take photographs. What else is there?

Where's our summer???  My poor kitties are in shock!  Here they thought they'd get to spend the summer on the deck and it's too cold and windy.  Often when I open the back door, they don't even go out!

Well, we'll have quilts to keep us warm!  Oh boy, will we!  I was able to do a small amount on the Kaleidoscope quilt.  A little each day or so ought to finish it in no time.  I DID decide to give it an all over design instead of something different in the sashing.  You'll only get pics of the progress on that when I don't have anything else to show (or it's finished). 

I finished the squiggle lines in the Amish quilt.  Aren't they just the cutest things?!?  I actually giggled all the way through this.  And here's the back.  I don't think I'll outline the blocks, but that remains to be seen.  I'm on to the dogwood blossoms now.  I still have no idea what I'll do in the wide borders yet.  The narrow will get stitched with circles or braids.

Been doing a little on the embroidery for Mom's quilt.  Here's one block.

I also cut out all the colored blocks for my Spanish Steps qult.  I started with the blues that I knew I wanted in the quilt.  Then, when I'd finished those, I realized that over 2/3 of the blocks would be blue.  So, I just finished in blue.  Why fight it?  I think I'll make another one someday in multi colors.  I'll post pics of some blocks tomorrow after I sew a few.

Back up to The Loft.

And it's cold and rainy here. Still. We're not even gonna get up to 60* today. Brrr indeed!

Your Amish quilt is looking good. That squiggle is fun to do, isn't it?

And your embroidery is so nice! I can't embroider anymore, but I do appreciate it.

Thanks for Visiting! Come Back Soon!
