It's been such a busy week~and it's been hot with temps hitting near 110°~the heat has never bothered me and we don't usually have too much of the 100°+ weather, but it makes the kids cranky! So we've spent alot of time in the pool! I've been catching up and/or keeping up with my projects in the early mornings and late nights when it's cool, here are some more of these potholders I'm addicted to.
And another~I love this style. I bought some new feet for my sewing machine, and one was this pintuck foot~I love the shabby chic look it offers~I added strips of scraps to some of the rows for interest. And yes, they'll fray in the wash and eventually wear down to nothing, but for right now I love them. Speaking of sewing machine feet, I had no idea how many different feet were available for my machine!It's now day 9 of round 2 of the nine-patch quilt along and I'm one block ahead~10 blocks are done! I'm using only scraps from previous projects, there's definitely enough.
And I've worked a little more on the Good Ol' Summertime Mini Quilt swap project~I've added the little pinwheel flower. I actually had planned to make yo-yo flowers and place them close together to form a hydrangea, but it wasn't as cute as I had envisioned.
I'll machine applique the pieces so they'll have a finished edge. The flower and centers are made of a pretty batik and hand dyed fabrics.
Enjoy your week~I hope it's cooler where you are!
