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.
