I hate it when it is so hot here – it is uncomfortable to be on the porch past 9 AM which means if you don’t get outside first thing don’t bother. I was outside watering the garden last night at 7PM and it was 88 degrees – but the sun was behind the trees so it made it bearable. Tomatoes are finally starting to ripen one by one – I hope I get a spell where it is more like 10 at a time.
I made more hexies for Handful of Scraps – 2 rows finished – I could tell I was a little off and had to add another at the bottom on the left side and then I realized I needed on the other side as well – easy fix.
I need to thread baste more – the two bottom rows are together but not attached to the body – I will probably wait to do that until I have two or three more rows finished. Linking to My Quilt Infatuation .
La Passacaglia – I pressed the piece I will applique to and that is as far as I got with it. I’m trying to decide if I want to separate the pieces or have them together. I think this will probably be a wall hanging because if I have it on the table it is hard to fit a center piece as the pieces would be covered up partially or all of it !
I think it looks better all together – the background piece will be cut down some – when I was thinking on the table I was thinking this size, but if I have it for a wall hanging it would be too long – I would have it a bit smaller.
Separated pieces. I feel if they were separated it would need more applique and I no longer have the templates nor the fabric that I was using. I just wanted to use these 3 pieces up and get them out of the UFO box.
Every year I get tree frogs residing in the fern dish – they love the cool water I am sure – I found this one last night – this year has been so different being wetter than normal until recently that I hadn’t seen him until now – guess it got too hot wherever he had been until now.
