and did I mention blazing hot? LOL
With the temps in the high nineties,
and the heat index to be well above 100 degrees each day this week,
THAT is a little much.
It does probably mean a little more stitching time indoors
in the air conditioned coolness, though, and that is good.
My computer has been in the shop. Again... Which really is a blessing in disguise; being able to have it repaired means I didn't have to purchase a new one. I'll try to take a few minutes at lunchtime each day this week and visit all my blog friends and try to get caught up on all the fun.
Sweetie's nephew asked me to create a quilt gift for his wife, in honor of their 12th anniversary. They are such a sweet couple and family, and I'm proud to claim them! lol
He told me the some of her favorite colors, I chose the fabrics, sent secret messages and pictures back and forth, and got to work. Delivered ahead of schedule, so just had to wait out the gifting before I could share with you all.
Their anniversary date has passed, so I won't ruin his surprise if I share now.
Queen sized, teals and corals, Crazy 9 Patch pattern:
Hard to make out, I know, but he asked for his/hers initials with wedding date, enclosed within a heart:
I also made a couple of large pillowcase/shams with leftover fabrics:
And probably my favorite picture - the trimmings from squaring up the blocks:
I'm off to have some lunch and do some MORE secret stitching!
Hope your week is wonderful!!!
