Purple Martins fledging

Yesterday and today I have had Purple Martins singing up a storm.
The weather is terribly hot.
Plants are drying up in the heat, so I  am sewing and staying out of the heat.
I need to figure out again how to post pictures on my blog.

Charity workday

Southern star and Tee Hee bees met together at my house today. We had ten ladies working and laughing from 10 till~ 3:30. We made 61 pillowcases for various charities in the Austin area. Gail provided lunch which was fantastic. Sara brought her homemade bread. Several others brought extras too.  It was a great positive effort on everyone’s part.

Saturday I delivered five new tops to the church.  I kept three to put the borders on.  At the retreat last week,  I finished two more embroideries of animal portraits. I made one block for the “tree farm”. I made Godric’s quilt top and back. Now I am quilting his quilt which is a friendship star 🌟 quilt.
I have many projects to work on, but have to take them slowly. Energy is lacking.  Each day is a new chance to create something beautiful.

March stitching

I spent last week doing a meditation stitching with my sewing machine. The results were three quilt tops made from scraps. It worked as a meditation because I kept the fabric pieces simple. Not a way to be productive. Slow but good.

Quit tops and blocks

Yesterday I finished my sixth quilt top for the year. I am thankful to my bee for the scraps they gave me and thankful I could sew them into a top.
I am attempting to cut down on the stuff that fills my house and clutters my mind. Ideas come fast and furious, but I have to keep clearing space so that I can persue some of the ideas I am so happy to be getting again.  Being a seventy year old grandmother is such a blessing.  I want to be a good example for the little ones. That  means clearing out space so we can play, too.

A cold day is a good time to organize and get rid of some stuff.  So off I go...

I have finished three quilt tops for LWR. This is starting out the new year a bit slow, but I have been under the weather for almost a whole month. Finally on antibiotics, hope they guessed right.
My cough is vert wet sounding. No fun here!

Harvey relief

I am working on quilts for a challenge to make 500 quilts for the relief effort. Three so far. Taking a class in thread painting tomorrow. Looking forward to learning a new technique.
 I am overwhelmed by all the fabric and batting I have acquired. It is taking several days to piece and quilt and bind these quilts. A very slow way to get rid of fabric and batting.
Just finished sandwiching another quilt. Hope to quilt later this afternoons.
Beautiful weather here. Cool temperatures make me want to take a nap.
