Morning friends! How are you?  Are you doing ok?  I think about you and this space where we meet, but I just don't seem to manage to make it here.  But I do think about you and all the years we did meet regularly.  I miss it.   So I hope you are well.

I was surprised opening blogger to find a whole new interface!  Holy cow, it caught me by surprise, but I managed to figure it out.  I'm glad about it, because sometimes I feel like my figuring out days are behind me!  I haven't been sewing much and I see the last time I blogged it was about these cute little 'x' blocks from Heidi's blog. I managed to stitch them together finally and then layered and basted them over the weekend.  I love using Free Fuse, I know I've talked about it before.  I like it as an alternative to an adhesive spray.

Anyway I even turned into a pillow and I think it turned out so cute.  It's the perfect size.. I think it's a 12" x 16" pillow form and it tucks in nice and tight which is how I like it.

I have been spending a lot of time out back lately and I've befriended a little garden cat that comes to our backyard.  I  named him Orange Julius before I realized he's a she, so we just call her OJ.  We pretend to have tamed her, but I think she belongs to a neighbor.  Frankie took this cute picture of her.  


She comes in the morning to hang out with me when I water all my plants in pots and then comes back in the evening for a few pets before it's time to head home.  She's a fun addition to the garden, and I never know when I'll see her outback waiting for me to come out and pet her.

Not much else going on here friends.  Mostly we stay home, only heading out for groceries or necessities.  We're in a heat wave right now, so we stay inside, temps are in the 100s.. and I'm not a fan at all.  I enjoy seeing all your sewing projects on Instagram, and really love seeing all the pretty garden pictures from places with summer rain.  I hope you're doing well.  Time to go get another cup of coffee!!  xop
