Summer keeps rolling on and the days get hotter, so Sophie spreads herself out wherever the air conditioner is blowing...
...but let's not talk about the downside of the season. A wonderful positive is the abundance of summer fruits for breakfast with Mr E!
All those wonderfully bright colours offer a variety of vitamins and nutrients for our bodies. We're off to Townsville to look at two prospective rental houses today, and if we're successful we'll be using plenty of energy to pack up our house, load a moving van, and relocate. Those vitamins will sure come in handy!
Mr E has already began to pack up his tools and yard equipment, but not alone. 11yo grandson Calab came by yesterday to give Pop a hand, and he was rewarded a dinner of his choice - spaghetti and egg on toast. How easy was that?!
While they worked outside in the heat, I worked inside in the cool.
A few patterns were written, some tidying of the sewing room, and then I cut all the pieces for my "Promises & Borders" quilt.
If you're intending to make this quilt, I have the material requirements and cutting instructions for download on Tuesday's blog post.
A great idea is to label zip lock bags with the sizes of the strips you've cut ready for the piecing.
Tick off each length on the pattern as you go...
I'm going to buy a pretty box tomorrow to store all the pieces and completed blocks in. Having everything in one place keeps my mind organised - and I love an organised mind!
A couple of commenters have said they are unable to download the block and pattern shared HERE. One lady asked if I could upload the files to google documents. Well, they are already on google, so not sure why you're having a problem. Wish I could help, but sometimes things just don't want to download as they should.
My only suggestion is that you email me privately and I will email you the files. If you haven't left an email address in your comment I'll need you to contact me again. Hope that helps! :-)
Now to make lunch before we head off for the house inspections. Can I ask you to pray that we find the right house for us to rent this year, please?
