Too Hot

I think I'm ready to get back to my Kim McLean basket quilt. It has been pushed to the way side and neglected.

There was a time when I couldn't put it down, now I'm averaging about two leaves a month.

Then I thought I'd add my initials. That is what the "B" belong to.
Hubby thinks it looks folky but I think it harkens back to an old Swedish plate.

Either way, this is good news. I've rekindled a love for this quilt and am loving adding more than two leaves a month.

This weekend I sat in front of the TV and appliqu├ęd. It was SO hot... you didn't want to move. We were sequestered in front of the cooler.

One of the few times I moved, I added the new color chip quilt to the others on the wall. Well technical, over my fabric shelves.

It doesn't look as good as Kathy's from inspired by antique quilts, but it is inspiring for me to gaze on them from across the room.

So there is my weekend report. Hope I didn't bore you too much.

Take care, Brandie
