Life gets in the way

I haven't been posting and I hope I haven't lost everyone. Things have just been busy.
This is another panel from the wall hanging. I'm really getting not to like it. I think I have put too much on it. Maybe I'll put it away for a while and just work on some of the UFOs I have. I'm starting a biscornu by Carol Tinson. I love the things she does. I'm only sorry that she is in the UK.

I finally finished these two letters on the rainbow Gallery project. I started the letter G yesterday. It seems too go much faster than the others. I want to spend some time today finishing a motif on the red, white and black so I can post that.
The weather has finally cooled down around here. Of course my yard is just completely dead. Our water bill doubled this month. Never mind the electric because of the air conditioner. I don't know how the people on fixed income manage. I spent a lot of time today looking at everyone's work. Some of the ladies from down under have posted pictures of their pring flowers. Sonice to see when every thing here is brown. I hope i can remember to do the same when they are in the middle of their winter.
I also watched a movie called "The Road Home" It's a love story about a chinese boy and girl that endures 40 years. Very nice and the scenery was beautiful.
Better get sewing.

I'm back

Well, for anyone who might still be watching this blog. I have finally gotten my laptop back. I've had a busy week and have not done much stitching. Hope to get some pictures posted later today. June

Wooly Flower Sampler

This is another of my UFOs. I started this in 2003 and just needed a break from the CQ. The pattern is from The Starry Pines Pattern Co. It is wool felt stitched on Tie dyed flannel using the blanket stitch. It doesn't take much thinking and goes fairly fast. I did the sunflower over the weekend. I have 3 more blocks to go. Then I need to choose fabric to finish it into a quilt. Don't know quite how to do that, but i have some friends who do.
It is 103 on the patio in the shade today. The weather man promises it will cool down by the end of the week. Our County fair starts on Friday and we usually have hot weather and some rain during the fair.
Hope you like my stitching for this week.
