More Blocks and Crochet

I made the next two blocks in Amy's Sample Quilt along, and I have discovered a block I really love. It is the Log Cabin block. I know, it's old, simple, been done a million ways, but I love the one I made today.
I like the solf colors and the simplicity of the block. The other block we had to do is this Mosaic: It's a striking block and a good contrast to the log cabin.

I made the Word Play quilt top on Saturday, and I really like it. It is not like anything I've made so far in that the fabric isn't anything I would have chosen on my own. I have to think of a nice way to finish it.

This dishcloth and hotpad are my entries so far in the Crochet Soiree July CAL, which has a Christmas in July theme. I have so many other things going on that I don't think I'll make anything else, but we'll see.

This is the fabric and pattern I bought with the Sew Mama Sew gift certificate I won last month. I've been wanting to make a dress that would be comfortable in this humidity and yet pretty, and I hope this is it. It's called the Claire Cami Dress, and from what I've seen of it on other bloggers it seems to look good on everyone.

I listened to The Tale of Despereaux today, and although I liked it, I didn't get the same good feeling as I did from The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. Maybe because I read the first book and listened to the second book. Still, it's a good story with a nice theme, and since it has a castle and a princess and a dungeon, I suppose it would appeal to young people. I did laugh out loud a few times. Yesterday I read The Christmas List by Richard Paul Evans and loved it.

We're still stuck in this grungy hot humid weather. I wish I could like it. (Yippee, it just began to rain. Boy, do we need it!)

God Bless You.

Your blocks are beautiful. For some reason, I hated making the log cabin block so I am glad you liked making it.

Once again, your blocks are just darling. I love the sweet simplicity of the log cabin and the brightness of the mosaic.

Oh, and I feel like I should know you because of some of your side bar items, but I probably don't. I'm glad to have found your block through this block sampler and your block is bookmarked. Seeing your other work is fun, too. God bless you!

Found your blog, not block! Oh, and your blog is bookmarked, not block. I guess you see where my mind is. ;) Sorry for the typos.
