I got 12 of my Little Monkey blocks done.....all 30s and 40s fabrics and some repros. I inherited a bag of old dress scraps about two years ago; they are perfect for this pattern.
I also got the June Sew Red for Women block finished:
It's the "woven strips" block in the upper left corner. I can see that twelve of these will make a lovely sampler quilt.
I finished one of the flying geese borders for my mariner's compass, and am appliquing my Dazzling Dresdens to background blocks. I'm using YLI silk thread and loving it....it just doesn't show.
I also got three quilts bound, but that makes for a sorta boring post.....like watching grass grow.....which is another thing we have around here. I'll leave you with a photo of the view from my sewing room:
I'm sort of like "Mary, Mary, quite contrary".....I can sit at my sewing machine and literally "watch our garden grow." We had squash three times last week.....you know what that means don't you? Waiting for cucumbers, but harvesting something almost every day. The blueberries have been incredible, we only have 6 "active" bushes, but we've picked more than 4 quarts already and more are ripening.
Have a great Monday....we're getting some rain here today, and I've got to trek into NoVa for some appointments, the dentist, and dinner with my granddaughters......it should be an interesting drive on I-81 and I-66.......stay dry, friends.....
