Summer has been very unusual this year. So far this year the temperature has been very mild with a lot of rain. In July and August, it's usually in the 90s with the humidity level right up there with the temp - very hot and sticky to be outside. But right now, it's just 80 outside. I don't remember a summer ever being quite like this. It's really pleasant to be outside for a walk in the park.
I finished my Scrappy Christmas swap blocks. I liked making them, but the closer I get to completing something, the more anxious I am to get it done. Now I just wait for instructions for what to do with them next. Sorry the picture's so fuzzy; I just couldn't get it to focus properly.
I worked for a couple of hours on my Double Wedding Ring quilt, and got quite a bit done. However, I rechecked some of the work I did last week when I was trying to catch up with my promise, and I was really shocked at how bad it was. I've decided to officially break my promise to do at least one circle a day, and just work on it when I feel like it. I got a lot done today and found that it gets so much easier when I 'get in the groove' of doing that particular kind of piecing. Now I have to go back and unsew some of what I did last week. It would be a lot better if I did it right the first time, huh.
