Summer has finally come to northern Idaho

We went from below normal, to above normal temperatures practically over night.  I'm just grateful for some sunshine--finally! My cat -known as Mud- is enjoying an afternoon nap out of the heat.


I have been working a bit on one of the baby quilts
I'm doing paper-pieced tumbler blocks for one side of my great-nephews quilt.  I was going to put the red along the two long edges, but after seeing it laid out I think I will mingle it in with the other colors.


I have a couple of new quilting books.  Well this first one is actually old, but new to me. 
I think these blocks will be great for using up scraps.

 I can't wait to start doing the embroidery in this book. (One of these days, I hope my photos will be better!)


  1. Mud is very sweet! Wonderful fabric for the baby quilt and great books. Lots of projects to keep you busy.

  2. The baby quilt is going to be so happy and fun with the blocks you are making!! Love the books, looks like lots of fun things are in the works at your house
