What are your scraps turning into this month?
Saturday, July 15, 2023
It is finally starting to feel like summer. I have been working a few hours most days, but yesterday I had an actual at home all day vacation day and it was so lovely!
I have been busy sewing hexies together into rows. So far I have finished red orange and yellow. I really don't have a lot of orange fabrics! I will see what I can find to bulk up that row a bit. It has been so nice to settle in with a movie and sew in the air conditioning.
It is HOT out there. I try to get out before it heats up in the morning, because once the sun is fully up it just starts to bake.
We have enjoyed beach walks though, with toes dipped in the water it doesn't feel so warm. There are all sorts of turtles swimming in the ocean and birds hanging out in the sand.
I also made good progress on this t-shirt quilt. If is for the same lady who had me make a quilt for her daughter's wedding last summer. This one is girl scout themed. I am not sure if I like the green that I had on hand for the lattice. I might try something else.
How is your sewing coming along. We are halfway though July already!

It's July! I am looking forward to red this month. Something vibrant seems just right. We are at the cabin this week doing lots of manual labor. There has been wood cutting, rock hauling and assorted chores keeping us all busy. Kurt installed a new window successfully. We got an estimate from a contractor and decided that was a project we could definitely try to do on our own. The first attempt went well enough that I think we will just slowly work our way through the worst ones.
We did get a dumpster delivered and have almost filled it in two days with the collected debris that has been collecting on the property for at least the last three decades. It is red in honor of the color for July! We were successful yesterday in using the UTV to winch a washing machine up the side of the ravine. It was quite exciting! There were several pieces of a target practice deer form that got tossed in and the head ended up poking up at us over the edge of the dumpster. His one remaining eye is following at us as we roam around the property. There was lots of hand sewing of hexies that got accomplished in the car, but sadly, no photos. I brought up a machine though, so a sewing space is on the list of projects. It is a long list, but we are making good progress!
