Still Hot, and I'm Still Working on Quilting....

Today I slept in. I slept downstairs again last night. I had the fan going on down there and it was comfortable compared to up here.

Cooked the cinnamon rolls, and was a little disappointed because they had actually over rose and "caved." We went grocery shopping. Got that out of the way. Came home and I sat watching an old war movie with Patrick. It was a really good one about a submarine. I loved the actors in the show. I just can't remember the name, sorry.

I started and worked on this Bountiful Baskets block. It looks better than this photo! I really need to work on getting butter close up photos from the tablet. I usually do good with the tablet but not today. 

Then I started on this one. I'm not sure what basket number it is. I do have the book downstairs. 

Speaking of book, this is the second one with all the patterns. I pretty much filled the first book up real good.  I printed out the new patterns for this month, and got them ready to go in the second book. I also added the background fabric to the pages of the new patterns. I would like to get more of the first book done first before heading to the second one. 

I like the new blocks. I can't wait to get there. 

While I spent my time downstairs, I marked the butterfly quilt so I can put the "trellis" on it. I'm not sure when I will start, but I know I need to get it done. So, I'm going to try and do the applique on it. I really need to finish that one up. I also took the strips and sewed them up. This is my pile to cut them and have them ready. I was thinking of a lot of different designs I could use for the 9 patches. I'll have to think about what I really want, but I'm having fun getting them done. I did count 7 more strips to make. I may get an idea yet!! 

I've been enjoying my time downstairs. I've been getting a lot done and enjoying the steps to get there. Patrick had some water issues that I had to know about. Being secretary of the community water, so things come up and I'm tight with the money! lol 

To my readers, I wish you all the best! I also hope your having an awesome day and are Happy Quilting!!

Spending The Day With Mom

It snowed more last night. Soooo, this morning was all white. It was gorgeous! Patrick said to wait till 10 am before going out. I decided...
