Happiness Is...

A late night at the sewing bench...


256 pretty 1-1/2" squares of fabric

that have become

64 cute little 4-patches

that will become

the next border on my

Temecula Summer Block of the Week
Medallion Quilt

Good night for now...

It's Growing!

Border by border... inch by inch... week by week... this little Summer quilt project from Temecula Quilt Shop is growing! It's a super enjoyable summer project too... one week has a border with many pieces... and then followed by a simple border...

Week 6 brought a border of square in a square...


Week 7 was easy breezy... and also introduced an unexpected fabric change that adds to the interest and antique appeal of this design...


If I remember correctly, I think we're up to 32" square so far... and I'm already looking forward to next weeks packet to arrive! :-)

On days when it's too hot in my stitching room, you can find me upstairs in the air conditioned living room stitching tiny x's. Here's some progress on a Birds Of A Feather Alphabet Sampler that's been in my stash (kitted) since 2002...

And... if you've been wondering what "that radio guy" has been up to... well... here's a picture of his latest restoration...


It's a 1941 Zenith 6S 511... repainted a buttery yellow with gloss black accents... this completely restored AM and Shortwave little beauty plays as well as it looks!!! And the best part is, she's perched upon a shelf in my sewing room! :-) 

So that's about it here... many thanks for all the bids on my current auctions! I appreciate the help with getting my stash of projects down to a manageable size... it simply makes hooking, quilting and stitching that much more relaxing! :-)

Until next time... stay health & keep on smiling!

Flowers and Some Auctions

I've been stitching right along with the Temecula Quilt Shop Summer Block of the Week... the latest border has quite a few pieces in it... so I'm taking my time and marking all the pieces with 1/4" seams so that I can accurately line everything up... the FIRST time! lol!

In the meantime... if you are a cross stitcher and would like to take a peek at a few of my eBay auctions... click HERE...

If you just want to look at some pics of the most colorful section of my flower garden... see below...






That's all for now...
