June accomplishments were modest

Good thing I didn't really set any goals for the month of June. I knew with the arrival of our first grandchild that I would be a bit distracted from my sewing room. So the accomplishments listed below are small and pretty modest.

  1. Saturday Sampler block + black/white/bright version for me (Jacob's Ladder this month)

  2. bonus block for Saturday Sampler

  3. July appliqued mini quilt from Count On It

  4. swap block (batik log cabin variation)

  5. 36 pinwheel blocks for a charity quilt project

  6. applique "seeds" onto my watermelon table runner (halfway on hand quilting)

  7. loaded my French Braid quilt on Sylvia's quilting frame to quilt TODAY

  8. hand quilting and binding on Twister placemat

Yesterday evening I went down to my sewing room in the basement to sort through my batiks for the upcoming house blocks. However - unkown to me, my husband had decided to open all of the basement windows to get some fresh air. Then he went to work in the morning and played golf at the end of the day. We had a 95 degree day with 95% humidity!!!!! Needless to say my sewing room felt like a sauna. The fabric even felt wet. Guess it was an example of a good idea gone wrong!
