It's hot but I'm not complaining. Yet.

With a little creative blurring my backyard looks like a profusion of flowers right? That iceberg rose really blooms it's heart out, but it's a lot of work dead heading those spent blossoms. The temps are up in the high 80s and low 90s so it blooms out pretty fast. Already time for pruning again.

Finished up my block for the Blogger's Block of the Month. It's Amy's turn, and I really like her block. What I don't like is my puckery seams. Looks like someone  needs some remedial triangle sewing practice. I'm having some tension issues on my machine, so it could also influence my piecing. It's headed to the shop while I"m gone, so once home, I'll give it another try.

I don't know why I didn't do this before. Made myself a badge holder/lanyard, whatever it's official name is. I always think of it too late when I see all the wonderfully creative ones at market. Mine isn't as clever as Angela's, but it's fun.

Why didn't I do this before?

What's new with you? I'm behind in my blog reading and I know there must be fun stuff going on !

I love that lanyard! I've enjoyed looking at all your new projects.
I've got my new quilt top make from (PKM fabric)on the rack and have started stitching butterflies. It's so cute!!

Have fun at Market!! :o)

The lanyard is darling. I made one for Shelbie because she has to wear her badge like that all the time where she works. She gets compliments on it all the time. You will too. I really need to do some yard work. I wonder if I can bribe mason. He's not a very hard worker, that darn kid.

Your roses are so pretty. I am was 97 here yesterday so was out early to deadhead and water this morning.
Don't you just hate it when your machine acts up? Mine was serviced recently and WOW what a difference.
Love your lanyard. I need to make a name tag for Bernina Club, now I have some inspiration.
I am still loving using your fabrics. Can't wait to see your new ones. Have fun at market.
