It is hard to believe that 2021 is half over. I feel like 2020 was a blip that we just skipped over. Life is getting back to normal but I am not sure that normal will ever feel normal. Know what I mean?
I am happy to report that my June mini is completed on time. Miracles do happen! This little quilt was made using orphan blocks from a project I started but only got as far as six blocks. So they got repurposed!
Keeping up with weekly sew along seems to be harder and harder. I did start the it earlier this month and finished the first week’s blocks. They are asking for 10 blocks a week. The good thing is they’re small-6”. The bad thing is they’re small! Tiny pieces but I'm enjoying the process. it's a bit much to keep up but I'm trying! There is a tiny mistake in the top block which I corrected. These are the first week's blocks. I"m half way done with the second week and the third week's blocks were just posted. Behind again!! The sew along is from a book called Sampler Spree, and I'm enjoying the small variations in simple blocks.
That's actually me, taken by a friend. We were at East Lake in the Newbury Volcanic region. This lake is literally in a crater from an old old volcano. I think the rock formations are so interesting and it's hard to believe that it's all from thousands of years ago! For scale, you can see a boat in the bottom as well as a kayaker.
We were hoping for a break in the heat and last night there was thunder and a tiny bit of rain. I thought the clouds looked so cool.
I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend. Stay safe and healthy!
