Hello Friends,

Feeling blue today, I wish this place was more lively and we had things to do and share and enjoy together. I am missing the friendships I thought I had made here. Sigh~

Sandy, I am just doing  a plain background with a border of some of the  Meow or Never line. It is partially colored in and then the rest is white so you can color it in yourself. My dd enjoys using fabric paints so I thought she would have fun with the coloring.

The garden is doing really well here, we have apples, almonds and peaches on the tree  Lots of peas right now too. We've had a bit of rain and cooler weather, and now the forecast calls for 'extreme heat' over this coming weekend.. here at the house will be in the low 90s  and they call that extreme...cracks me up.

I've lost my sewing mojo somewhere. Ms Pat suggested that I join or start some sewing that is done for charity, as I always seem to be picked up by that. I think I need to forget about quilting all these quilt tops, send them to some charities and just start making patterns again. I always enjoyed that, the piecing more than the quilting. Although I don't want to not quilt at all, just give up on trying to get this huge stack quilted. I don't know, something...

How is everyone? Anyone who is around that is. lol

Hi, Dorian! I miss everyone here, too! I check every day for new posts, but don't post often b/c it feels like talking to myself. :(

How fun that Rachael can color/paint part of her quilt! That's a great idea.

We've finally been getting rain. There was talk of mandatory water restrictions a couple of months ago. Now it's been raining nearly every day. Great for the environment, not so good for DH's paycheck, since he does pressure cleaning.

I have a stack of tops that need quilting, too. I enjoy quilting and binding; I think it's creating the backings that holds me up. I started a small PP project a couple of weeks ago. The pattern is called Milady's Fan. It has 20 PP blocks and I've made 7 so far.

I have my last PT appt. for my shoulder tomorrow! Surgery was a little over 4 months ago. I still don't have full range of motion, but the arm is getting stronger and hopefully the ROM will continue to improve.

Dorian and Donna,
Don't give up on us yet!! After my retreat in April I didn't do a whole lot of quilting, but the last couple weeks I got the bug and got back to sewing again. Last night I finished a flannel throw for a wedding tomorrow. I used the "Turning Twenty" pattern and had a Holly Taylor panel that I used in place of the larger block. The panel block is slightly smaller that the large block is supposed to be so my overall quilt blocks are about 1/2" smaller than what the pattern should be, but hey, I don't really care! I love the way it turned out and I think the couple getting it will too!
And last week I finished a baby row quilt that is done in the quilt-as-you-go method. It's nothing super fancy, but cute none the less. I'm going to get it in the mail tomorrow for my cousin's first grand-child.
I had made a 'Realtree' panel quilt for my nephew and his wife for their wedding shower a couple years ago. It's really a nice panel, with a cabin and deer on it. They put it on their 7year old's bed at the cottage, only to have him tell them that this is a cabin quilt, not a cottage quilt and that he should have fishing quilts on the bunk beds!! So guess what I have to do now??!!
And then my niece informed me last week that she is pregnant and due in December. She has told me the colors she would like and I can go from there. I guess it's a good thing that I'm getting the urge to quilt again!! Just in time!!!
And I'm getting 2 weeks off in July!! ....the week of the 4th and the following week......I can't wait!! I guess I should spend some quality time bonding with my sewing machine!!

Have a great weekend!

Midge, your Turning Twenty sounds very creative! I made a version for my sister several years ago from a kit I'd picked up at a quilt show. Hers was called "Turning 50!" - guess why?! LOL

I'm taking two weeks off in August. We're going on a family cruise/land trip to Alaska. I'm guessing it won't be 95 degrees with 80% humidity there!
