Time to share our water melon blocks...
I must have made some errors because nothing fit together right ... but I trimmed here and there and made it work in a PRIMITIVE way;).
This is part of another fun quilt a long with Lori at Humble Quilts. Check it out. Some gals are getting really creative with fabric choice - some fabulous stuff! The pattern is by Jan Patek.
And speaking of fabulousness...
Barb Vedder (Fun with Barb) has a great swap going so check out her blog here if you are interested in swapping "broken dishes" blocks. I am sorely tempted to go "modern" but decided on Civil War repros.
We are wilting in drought and record heat here in Massachusetts. Our window A/C units are going full blast 24/7 and we have fans everywhere too - the white noise this all creates is deafening!
Tommy leaves TOMORROW for his mission for our church. His fast friend Hansen is also leaving shortly for his mission. Last night our families had an open house for the boys - for church folks, neighbors, school friends. Many hands make light work. Cake and cold drinks and fond farewells to two young men, one going to Hungary and the other to Brazil to serve their hearts out for two years.
Both our daughters are in town and it's just a joy to have all our kids together for this brief precious time. There is no sweeter sound than hearing the kids laughing and talking together. We did manage to get this snapshot before church. We've been taking family photos in front of this old maple tree for years and years.
Time marches on and as of tomorrow we will be empty nesters. More time for fly fishing? (David) and quilting? (me). ;).
