I had big plans for sewing this weekend, and I did work on my challenge quilt. Hazel and Joanna are hosting the QAL, and Sue issued a challenge for us to work on. Hazel even baked cookies for us this month! And oddly enough, the Hallmark channel is running Christmas in July this weekend, so I watched a couple of Christmas movies last night while stitching.
Here is what I worked on for the challenge.
Is this going to be amazing, or what?
I hope to spend more time on it later tonight.
I got a late start on Saturday, because DH and I did a little shopping and hit the sidewalk sales in a nearby town. There may be a new pair of shoes in my closet, and a couple of clearance tops – one for summer and one for winter.
My excuse for today is that we went to the produce stand, which is a few miles out of town, and then stopped for lunch and groceries. I hate going to the grocery store, what a time waster.
Fresh produce, however, is another story. We came home loaded up with several different squashes, corn, peppers, and tomatoes.We didn’t buy peaches yet, because these were all cling, and I prefer freestone. We’ll be seeing them soon.
I’m trying a new recipe for Summer Squash Custard for dinner tonight. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
As soon as we’re finished with dinner and dishes, I’ll be heading back to the sewing room. I want to work on my Christmas challenge some more, and I have two swap items to work on. Did I mention that the shopping yesterday included two fabric stores? I needed some grass fabric and sky fabric for one of the swaps, and I knew I could find it at one of the stores. And the other store was just having a big sale. “Fabric” + “Sale” How could I not stop.
When I got home, I had a lovely little package from Simone in Australia!
The flowers are beautiful, and look at that gorgeous card!!
Off to dinner now, and then more sewing.
Spread kindness this week……Sunny
