next up!

the orange mod is the next UFO to be worked on to the flimsy stage....in a perfect world, i'd have a complete wall for design space, but until that happens....


and here is the gray accent design with another block almost done...


oh yes, i am really liking how this looks so far.  out of white squares so all done for tonite....will it use up all my orange scraps??  surely you jest, but at least some of them....and since the shoebox they are in is cracked at one end, the leftovers will move on to another waiting place for another use.  this is another one i'm itching to hand quilt. it'll be a while, tho, since these blocks take more time to construct.  ***  got my summertime haircut the other day.  when i moved to maryland, found a terrific place and haircutter but SUPERCUTS has moved into the neighborhood with better prices, and since my follicles have a long history with that business, have switched.  ***  and what else have i been doing?  cooking up veggies...had several zukes, summer squash, peppers and was given some very large sweet potatoes so cooked all the summer squash, fried up some onions and peppers, used up 3 of 4 zukes--saving the last for lemon zucchini bread--and roasted the sweet potatoes and popped in freezer.  also got a few ears of delish corn and some tender little cukes and 2 huge tomatoes, so it's good eating now that summer fresh days are here....now back to quilting the QOV and get THAT puppy done!

  5. That pattern is a winner. It's new to me. Love the twists. Also love you ocean waves. It's gorgeous in solids with black, a look I love and want to do soon. How big are those HSTs? Glad to find your blog, Grace.
