time for a finish...

but first, my little blueberry clock is back on the wall after 1.5 years in a box and then getting new hands....so happy to have it home at last....


and the lady of the lake swap blocks have been finished into a donation quilt...they are sooo pretty and glad i opted for 2 rounds to give me enough for a good sized flimsy....



closing in on another finish but not sure it'll be done before september flies....seems so warm to me for september, hovering around 80s all week...but, as john belushi says, but nooooo!

saturday surprise

it was about 4 pm when finally got dressed (yeah, i know) after sewing a good portion of the day...decided to mosey on down to the mailbox and look what was waiting....


a fat 8th bundle of jo morton's "gratitude" with coordinating bella solids AND aurifil thread!!!!   you can bet my quilty to-do list just got a tad longer....oh yes, thinking of a di ford project here...these are soo beautiful...i confess i had a 15-minute pity party this afternoon after a very nice day sewing and roasting a chicken.   the job hunt has been a bust and some pressing big ticket needs were on my mind.  a chat with an internet pal cancelled that party pronto and then this.....i'm humbled, thankful, blessed and feeling totally unworthy of such blessings and guilty for even 15 minutes of the poor mes....
