Life is short - summer is shorter!!
We snuck away for a few nights at my parent's trailer - windy and cool. But we did get to have some campfires:)
I'm falling behind on my Halloween 1904 blocks again. This one I finished last week (?) First one with that fun pink and orange check! I had to cut out more orange stars from a different oranges so I am slowly blending them in to the remaining blocks.
I did get a little farther with my batik 9 patches! My idea is working out and I really like it. I"m making them in an Irish chain setting. This is the top left of a 3 x3 setting- so there will be one more solid batik print on the top row, one more block of 9 patches on the next row and a bottom row of solid batik, 9 patch block, solid batik. I don't think my fabric will go much farther than that! I should have some of the solid batik left to add a border. We'll see.
Last picture I have edited to post is this one of some ric rac! Another placemat - can you believe it?!
Actually I'm seriously considering a placemat club - one placemat pattern a month. Maybe a few more added in for special occasions - like birthdays, Halloween, Christmas.
Would you join a placemat pattern club?
Back to summer! (actually, back to some out of the house work and keeping up with my kids' summers!)
