Summertime and Blogging has Fallen by the Wayside

I was doing so well with blogging for a short time and then it turned summer and who know what happened.

The cats have been doing a lot of this with the warming temperatures.
Still Life:  Melted Remy

Looking like "melted" cats on the cool wood and tile floors.

And yes, Remy is a very loooooooong cat.

Here is the short version of what we've been up to this month:

We have been watching the World Cup.

Work at Starbucks has been busy with the tourists and seasonal residents flowing into town.

Saturday farmer's market visits, walks downtown, hiking and being outside as much as possible.

I've been sewing as much as possible on my days off.

Here's my most recent finish.  A just-for-fun quilt.  I bought the fabric for this a year or so ago at Intown Quilters in Atlanta.  I fell in love with Birch Fabrics Scamper line with the raccoons and foxes at the shop and found the gray, blue and white square confetti dot fabric by Michael Miller that matched perfectly.  The pattern is Radio Flyer by Jaybird Quilts and I added some fat quarters from my stash. Photos don't so the fabric justice.  It is much cuter in real life.

This is the second quilt I've made recently that is out-of-my-usual-box.  I hope to get backings for this and the Daydreams quilt on my next visit to ThreadBear fabrics in Las Vegas.

Hope everyone is enjoying these last few days of June.  Didn't this month fly by?!?!
