Odds and ends.....

While I was finishing the clean up in the basement I found the 2 sets of blocks that I had designed into table runners.  I figured I should sew them now while the blocks were still in order instead of having to design them again later.  Yesterday morning I baked 2 batches of cookies for the art quilters group today.  I mixed both batches of dough on Saturday night and then got up on a cool Sunday morning and baked all of them.
I sewed a few of the dotty blocks too when I was stacking them to move them.  It is supposed to be in the mid 80s again today with low humidity.  It feels almost like a normal summer for a couple days anyway.

I did a bit of sorting last night, but I didn't sew anything.
I heard on the weather that our high is supposed to be below 90 today. It may seem "cold" LOL

That sounds like a glorious "normal summer" to me. Lots hotter here! But we usually have a really nice winter, so I won't complain. I like your runners. Have you decided on/or are you having a border at all?

The table runners are so pretty. I still love the gray dotty fabric with the prints! We got a bit of rain this weekend, but not as much as you did. Probably too much too fast to do the good needed.

I guess we all are in a cleaning and sorting mood. My sewing room is back to what I call normal and I almost hate to mess it up. Boy, did I get rain the other night. Since I am on the southside I really got hit. Fortunately I didn't lose power but I did lose cable, internet and phone for almost a day. It went off after two lightning strikes one after another very close by, could be neighbor's yard. I know I jumped when it crashed and I was standing watching the storm out the kitchen window. At least we have some rain and the birds and flowers are loviing it and I got some sewing done since I couldn't watch tv. It is a beautiful day today.

Those runners are going to make for a wonderfully cheerful table!
We're getting lovely cool nights all of a sudden. Wonder if this is the end of the heat waves or if it's just a lull in the action.

I am so excited I just received my kits in the mail today! I am getting ready for more company later this week, and as soon as they leave, I want you to know I will be enjoying my kits as they pull out of the drive.... And will be thinking of you with every square. Thank you Wanda for all your long hours to make these kits for us.

Those table runners are so pretty and I know will compliment your tables. I can just visualize the red one on your kitchen table.

Zig-Zag and Dots is one I am really watching, as it is MY current favorite.
