This week I have been working on my second monthly compass block.
I have one fourth of it completed:
I started this as an interval project last month, making my first block when I was in limbo between projects and deciding what to start next. I made progress on the rest of this block today and will share when it is completed. I am loving the fabrics and colors (did you notice that gold piece has chicken wire?)
And, Flowers. My garden has felt neglected since I started blogging, the weather got hot, and I turned my focus to quilts. To pay a little attention where it is due, I took some pictures of my favorites in bloom right now.
Coreopsis, “Center Stage”. Best pink variety I have found yet.
One of the best parts of summer coming to an end is the emergence of anemones. these are called “September Charm” and they are gorgeous, delicate.
I hope the week is going well, we are over the “hump” day. My thoughts go out to those in the gulf enduring the wrath of hurricane Isaac. We’ll expect him to make a pass through Ohio in a couple of days.
