Odds and Ends

This morning was spent printing out and packaging June’s block for Jacobean Bouquet.   I know my post office ladies just love seeing me come in  with all this packages to mail on Monday morning.

  With this block we are half way there.  Only 6 more blocks to go.  I will be offering a border pattern in July or August.  The blocks can stand alone or you can choose to add a border.

This past week a dear online friend has been sending me gorgeous pictures of felted wool bowls that she has been making.  Earlier this year I shared with Mary some of the sea glass pieces I had collected from beach along the Delaware Bay.  Mary is a phenomenal fiber artist who recently retired from teaching her craft. Now she has extra time to create these awesome designs.  Here’s the first bowl with 4 pieces of sea glass.

Don’t you just love the way the pieces are attached to the felt bowl.  And here’s another one.

This one reminds me of a furry bunny.  Stop by Mary’s website for more on how she creates these bowls and other fiber art techniques.  Her website is http://www.MaryStori.com.  You can go over to her blog and sign up to receive her latest blog posts.  Mary shares all her adventures in work with different fiber techniques.

As I sit here typing I look out my window onto my crispy, dry lawn.  We haven’t received any rain in a few weeks and the temps have been  quite warm.

I hope this week brings us a reprieve from this dry spell.  The forecast is for thunderstorms on and off the next few days.

Continuing to make progress on my two quilts.  I have 150 two inch hexagons done.  Only 472 more to go.  Waiting for my order from Paper Pieces so I can continue.  But until the package arrives, I will keep cutting up my creams into 5inch squares. 

Last night while watching tv I stitched another 20 half square triangles.  They are cut and ready to be pressed and trimmed.  I need to do a count to see how I am progressing on this one.  Will update after I do a count.

And this afternoon, I am starting working on a new late summer design.  Autumn is my favorite time of the year and I love decorating the house with these fall,inspired pieces.  More on this later.
