July 3rd

Today I cut. Just need to tidy up a bit more around my cutting table and then I'm just going to do it! I don't know if I'll sew any today ... maybe later ... but I have two quilts I want to get cut out and ready to stitch.

The first is Brrrr Park which I talked about in the last post. I love that Winter fabric by Minick & Simpson.

The second one I want to cut is also Minick & Simpson fabric, a patriotic, but I don't know exactly which one yet. Doesn't matter at this point. I'm just itching to fiddle around with patriotic fabrics seeings as how it's the 4th of July weekend and all. I *think* I have some up in the stash room!

The pattern I'm going to use is Peyton at Play by It's Sew Emma designs. This one will sew up really quickly, and those large squares are perfect for some of that gorgeous patriotic fabric that Laurie and Polly design.

So that's my plan for today. I'll get laundry going in the interim, and will vacuum after finishing one and before starting the other. I hate house cleaning, so I'll play the little games I play to get it done. No stash report today. Next week will be a three-week report. I have a little bust so far, and a friend gave me some fabrics last week so I need to count those in. I just don't want to deal with that today. I'm hoping next week's report will have me very very close to being in the black. We'll see. As long I don't go sleep poking again!

It's so hot here. A great day to stay in and play. I need to sweep the patio, but that will have to be way later when the sun is about to go down.

I slept in a bit this morning, and Penny is over there snoring. She cracks me up!

Sounds like a perfect day..especially if you can run over to Wolfe's and pick up a few meals to go! I'm going to do a little weeding while it's cool,head to the grocery for a few pot luck things for tomorrow and then I'm hoping to get back into the sewing room. Oh! And that pattern just made it's way to my house this week too, I think Penny must have taught Spike how to shop at FQS too!

Their fabrics really are tons of fun. I'm a proud Canadian but am glad DH is an American so I can justify playing with their great prints regularly!

Great plan. My mission was wash and press a big box that landed on my door for my pink fund raiser quilt! Happy 4th

It's a perfect plan for the day!! Those wienie dogs can really do some snoring, can't they? :D I've been piddling in the 'stewdio' all day--not sewn a stitch yet, but I want to play with 'little' patriotic quiltmaking some time before the sun goes down. :D
