While my friends were here today I worked on the Australian fabric quilts.  I made some more of the triangles made with 4 smaller triangles.  I have to take all of these pieces off the design wall by Monday when my art quilters group will be here.  I'm just trying some different positions of the little triangles for ideas.  There are more fabrics to be mixed in when I get the rest of the cutting done.  I also worked on Hunter Star blocks.

Later in the afternoon I finished the mowing, the side yards and the back.  It is still really nice out and really cool at night, down in the lower 50s.  I have both windows open and the fan running all night.  I wish it could stay like this.  The cooler weather is really unusual for us at this time because the kids started school last Friday and it is usually unbearably hot their first 2 weeks of school every year.

I added some more items to my Wandaful blogshop last night.  Link is at the top of this page right under my header and a second link is on the right sidebar.

I just opened all the windows in my house this morning when I woke up to 64 and low humidity. It has been an odd summer for us with so much rain (10 inches in the last 2 weeks) and much cooler temperatures than normal - might have windows open tonight. Love the quilt.

Very pretty triangles! This has been a strange summer, we started off at 61 today with a high expected August in Oklahoma, I will take that!

I need to mow so bad, but I hate taking the time away from stitching on the R.E.M. quilt since I only have 15 more days to get it done to the point I can live with it. I may have to see if I can squeeze in a half day's vacation to mow or stitch.

Had to look at what you added to your Wandaful shop and see all the new items sold immediately ! I can see why, all were great buys.

I know your diamonds are a work in progress, and really like the smaller ones you you worked in. It is going to be a fun one to watch grow.
Glad you got your mowing done. You never let any grass grow under your feet. (*._.*)

It's been a weird summer in the UK too. We've just had the most horrible weather - wet - for most of the school holidays. It almost timed it to perfection at the start, but as ours don't go back until September, they are now enjoying a better (although very temperamental) few days at the moment. We had really hot weather in June (80 degrees plus)- but then compared with some parts of the US was probably classed as OK!

I do like those little triangles in the mix - very pretty.
