I think we have enough rain for awhile now. Yesterday, Connie, Mary and Jane came over for our monthly bee. Connie had just arrived and we were talking at the kitchen table when the lights flickered on and off a few times, ending with the off. Great! No air, fan or lights. Jim came home and got the generator going until the power came back. Luckily, it wasn't out too long. There are many area homes still without power from last Friday's storm. The plants, weeds and lawn are growing by leaps and bounds. We are so fortunate that no flooding or storm damage has happened to us with all of the crazy weather patterns going through.
More fun mail! From Serena came this beautiful bundle of Benartex fat quarters. It looks almost too pretty to unwrap. Catherine sent this package of iron on transfers from her Willow Valley Store. Thank you to both of you!
I haven't sewn the last step for the Orange Crush mystery, but here are the two blocks from the sets I made. The orange is still not thrilling me, but maybe it will grow on me.
The next picture is my pile of 16 patch blocks from Alycia's "Not too Top Secret Project" instructions. I have the larger four patch blocks almost done and will send the top to Alycia for Quilts of Valor. These blocks went together so quickly and I like the look of the blues.
