...for this week! For the first time since spring, I can concentrate on some quilting projects. Since I've been doing the stash report, DH has been asking questions like, "so, how many quilts do you think you could make with the fabric you already have?" Hhhmmm...a hint?
Also, hoping that my step brother and his family in Virginia are ok. He lives near the coast and the Potomac River. We just had dinner with him this week when he was in town for business and he got home just in time to prepare for Irene. I've been searching for news of his town/county.
back to some quilty things....
Pigtales & Quilts to see some lovely flower garden additions this week.
I think there are over 100 charms here. This includes most of the fabric from Joyce and from my polka dot FQs.
I also cut a few 2" strips for my flower garden. From the strips I cut rectangles 2.5" long.
Then I grabbed my scissors and sat down with my hexie template. Yes, I can use squares but I don't like the looks of the squares on the back so I trim off the corners.
Now I have quite a pile of hexies to baste.

I also got a start on my Clover & Violet QAL block #5 after spending about 4.5 hours at the pool yesterday. (For $23 admission we meant to get our money's worth. Plus, DS was having a ball and tried a little swimming on his own!)
Once home, I needed to prop my feet up and relax - all that pool time wore us all out!
We have a new quilt shop opening in our area on Sept. 6th, "Merrily We Sew Along." The owner already has a shop in Springfield, MO, that I've visited so I also have high hopes for a new personality as far as LQS's go.
Here are the numbers for this week - no change whatsoever! At least I didn't buy anything!
