July is not as hot as usual

Hi everybody:)

Busy week with temps in the upper 90's and heat index in the 100's and do you believe we have had rain??? I know! Just crazy!

Hubby and I were in the heat yesterday. Our lovely city of Copperas Cove had time on their hands so they went around our neighborhood and issued a warning to all of us that had tree limbs reaching over the sidewalk. Yes we were included:( So yesterday that's what we did... we used our brand new pole saw and whacked tree limbs for about 4 hours. The trees look great and the lot has 2 ginormous piles of tree branches on it... of course it will sit until the next brush pu. The neighbor is using our saw today to do his. Hubby was pretty peeved until he found out others got the same letter....  But now it's done until next year:) Hubby fell out of the truck once but caught himself before he hit by hanging onto the side of the pick up. He would of hit his head right on the driveway otherwise:( He was trying to not get hit by a branch... I did keep him off the roof:)

I am back into the swing of things and got some quilting done:)
Chris found this quilt made by her grandmother in her mother's truck. She hand pieced all those 4 patches... bless her heart! There were 240 of them!

Chris wanted me to add the border, quilt and bind. I think it turned out so nice!

Love the texture on the back! She loved it and will use on her bed:)

Elaine made a baby quilt using leftovers from all of her other baby quilts she has made.

I recognized a lot of the fabrics:)

Just loops and heats all over... has flannel backing:)

Margaret made this patriotic quilt.

Quilted loops and stars all over.

You can really see them on the back!

Lucy Boston has the hole filled and all the elongated hexies are made and now are waiting to be stitched together... I am getting there:)


I had been doing quite a bit of x stitching and wanted you to see KoKo helping:) haha!!!
Hope to work on it some more this afternoon:)

Busy week again... lunch bunch and then a retreat on Friday and Saturday:)
Got almost 2 charity tops sewed at Bee... just need to piece one backing and sew the border around the other one:) 
Have an awesome week!!!
