I know I say it
It was a nice, quiet weekend … we didn’t have a whole lot scheduled for our weekend, and for once nothing came up to change that … which meant that I was able to spend a good bit of time with my needle and thread.
We had rain – and a lot of it this weekend, especially Sunday. We stopped by the garden after church on Sunday, and while the ground was still wet, there was no standing water after the 3/4” we got Saturday. Unfortunately I’m not sure that I will be able to say that today … we got just under 2” yesterday, and that much rain with the wet ground from Saturday’s rain sounds like a recipe for more standing water.
At least as of Sunday everything was looking pretty good … that sunny hot weather we had during the week must have been just what the Garden Doctor ordered, as we’ve got zucchini blossoms
more tomato blossoms
… and a tomato!!!!
After we visited the garden, we drove to a nearby small city to do some fabric shopping. Earlier in the week, I registered to take a quilting class … just as I had selected all my fabrics, I got a phone call that the class had been cancelled. As frustrating as that was, I am thankful that I got the call before I had the fabric cut and paid for. After I got home, I got to thinking that perhaps I should have gone ahead and purchased the fabrics. I’m pretty confident that I could probably make this at home without the pattern. That’s just the snail’s trails pattern … and I’m sure I could find a paper piecing pattern online. BUT as it turns out, it’s just as well that I didn’t because this morning I found a paper piecing pattern for the storm at sea quilt, which I have been wanting to make for FOREVER! It’s next up on my quilting line-up!
I was so looking forward to the Super Moon, but alas, with the rains, there was no Super Moon viewing here.
Have a marvelous Monday!
