Melons in the Making

 I haven't posted for a while and thought it was time . . .

I have been very busy at work and also around the home.
Life never seems to slow down it seems.

I'm sure everyone is tired about hearing about my double wedding ring quilt,
but it is what I have been working on.
 I don't really want to put it away until it is done.

What you see here is melon production going on here.

Happy to report that I have 3 rows together - 
a 4th ready to sew on
and . . .
drum roll please . . .

just about enough melons for row 5.

After that I will finally be on the last row.


While I was on holidays, I started something new and finished two blocks.

They're kinda cute.

Just needed to do something different . . .
I bet you all understand.

A couple of days ago we had rain - the first in quite a while.

It felt so refreshing.

July 31, we had the most incredible sunset. 
I think it had to do with a lot of smoke in the air 
but none the less, it was beautiful.
What are you working on these days?
I find it's harder in the summer than in the winter.
One wants to be outside more than inside sewing.

Hope you all have a good weekend.
