Mid week appliqué....

Well, TS Colin just dropped a few inches of rain on us at my house. The kids got a little stir crazy and it was interesting to try and work with them...... but I finally had an idea after lunch and had them make Kool Aid play dough. Advise - use a zip lock baggie to make this and start with 2 cups of flour not 1 1/4. That kept them busy for a while in the afternoon making 'cookies' and opening a restaurant. Yesterday I dropped them off to Grandma early in the morning and got a nice 6 hour day in and completed a project so it moved up for testing. She took them over to the gulf coast and said there was a lot of erosion on the beaches over there. They got home in time for Vacation Bible School at the church where they do scouts. A first for us... they had a good time. That will be a couple of hours each evening this week as their activity.

While they were doing activities I enjoyed quiet in the air conditioned sanctuary and got some stitching time in. This block got completed and I also finished the diamond star this weekend.

  2. Love these blocks!
    Glad you escaped any troubles from Colin - and apparently didn't lose electricity - yay!

  3. Both blocks look absolutely gorgeous and glad to hear that Colin was a nuisance but no major trouble for you! :) Sounds as if summer is off to a good start for the kids! :)
