CLOSING THOUGHTToday is my WeeBee day! I look forward to the meeting because I couldn't make it to the Family Day last month (I think Felicia put pictures on her blog but I couldn't find em) since my guild was having a workshop I wanted to attend.
I have seen so many blogs discussing slacking, loss of interest, guilt in not getting anything started or finished. HEY - it's Summer, it's a heat wave, it's family time, it's outdoors, it's smelling the flowers. I pre-scheduled posts and actually was off and away - yeah, me - not sewing. Enjoying family, grandies, shopping, traveling. It's Summer.
At the bee we're doing an AIDS panel, and each member is supposed to make a 10" block. I wanted to keep it simple, so I made a ribbon with text:
I used 180 pt Script MT Bold to make the words - the font had to be fat enough to stitch around, with the letters hooked together to make it easier. It'll fly!
Meanwhile, here are two quilts from last week's guild meeting I thought were nice:
The houses were done by a visitor; she found pictures of houses on the web that she liked and made the templates - clever! I like the second one because of the vibrant colors, and the border treatment.
The season is winding down and we haven't gone berry picking yet - it's been hot! We still have some time left at Butler's Orchards, maybe we'll get some this year, plus whatever they have in their farm store. Those cantaloupes I got last year were so yummy-licious!
That's all for now, have a great Saturday! Sew forth and sew on til later
