After yesterday’s reasonably pleasant tempretures today is shaping up to be hot. I have spent just a bit of time popping weeds through the mulcher and filling the compost bin. I figure the heat of the sun will help to kill those pesky weed seeds even faster so I can use the resulting compost sooner on my vegie garden. Got to admit though even though I worked in the shade by the time I was done I was desperate for a long cold drink and even colder shower. It’s hot out there!!
After all that activity I have declared today to be an “Under the Airconditioner, Sewing Day”. A semi official holiday I have just made up…vbg.
I have seen quite a few mentions of Willowberry Designs new block of the month “Verandah Views” on various blogs and I just had to pop over and have a look and of course fell in love with Block 1. You knew that was coming didn’t you…grin.
Under The Willow was so easy to do and soooooo relaxing on a hot day. I loved it. The background fabric isn’t linen but quite a textured cream that is very soft but still easy to sew though and delightful to iron. Those marks you see are in the fabric too – they are not from my computer or scanner …..lol.
Block 2 – Bathtime is now up and available to download. It’s so cute. I have it copied onto the fabric – now for the fun part – choosing threads and beginning to stitch.
