The weather has been nice here with moderate temps in the lower to mid-80s F, rain, and low humidity for the most part. I've been working outside on the garden and on various maintenance projects. All those fun chores--reglazing windows, washing windows, priming exterior trim and porch posts, buying paint, etc. etc.
I would like to say a big THANK YOU to Nancy, Near Philadelphia for the wonderfully fantabulous mug rug and sewing goodies that I won on her 1600 Post Giveaway. Nancy's blog was one of the very first quilting blogs that I started reading lo these many moons ago. This mug rug just makes me smile and it will have a treasured place in my sewing room. You bet these great purple fabrics are going to be featured in a quilt or two and those adorable embroidery scissors are going straight into my on-the-go sewing kit.
After missing the past two Another Year of Schnibbles projects. I'm starting this month's right away. I dug through my stash of charm packs and found an early Fig Tree line called "A Day in the Country." The blocks are cut out and I'll be working on those this week. Photos to follow.
How could I not include an update on the cats? They are all fine and sprawled around the house in their favorite spots. Isn't this the cutest photo of Remy?!?!? (of course I think he is the cutest all the time). Remy loves playing in paper bags and I try to have one out for him to play in. Paper bags don't last very long because he likes to run into them at top speed so he runs right through the bottom or he rolls around and rips them to shreds.
Remy's "green" motto: Reuse, play, shred and recycle.
