Saturday houses in aqua....

I finally got a little sewing time this morning and worked on these two houses. They are pressed but I guess the iron was not hot enough.... those wrinkles did not come out! Yes, these fabrics were pulled from the bottom of a bucket all nice and wrinkled.

Linking up with the RSC Challenge. In that bucket... I found a slew of blues. I am seriously considering making another scrappy blue and cream log cabin quilt. I sold the one I had made with this challenge back in 2013 earlier this spring. Must finish off one or two UFO's first though.

I think I missed my walk and weeding opportunity. 9AM and way too hot and humid to be outside. Guess I'll just stay inside and get my quilt top from last week  ready for pinning. I cut the batting. Just need to make a backing and then clear off the sewing table for pinning..... ok, that will be a task in itself. I was hoping to quilt it today too... but we'll see how the day progresses. A few phone calls to make for Avon delivery and a little programming work to get done. Kids had an overnight at Grandma's yesterday but she'll return mid afternoon so we can all go rollerskating. Me..I'll be in sneakers but the kids will try it. This is a summer girl scout event but they opened it up to families so Aidan will skate for the first time. It should be interesting! Tomorrow, I have to remember pool things and actually work in the store for the short day. I don't think I have been into work there since February... the last time my manager had time off. Greg picked the short straw for today (he did not want to do the rollerskating with kids!). So much to do... and so little time. Hopefully next week will go a little easier. I have the kids scheduled for a STEM camp. It should give me time to actually work (programming)  in peace and quiet while they are away and hopefully will tire them out. The following week is a swim camp for them. I'm off to shower and get moving with my list of 'to do's. I hope to check in with the linkup later this evening.... assuming we survive the roller skating!

  2. It's hard to learn to skate the first time or two ! :)

    Here in PA we are to go to 93 degrees today, ugh. As to weeding and trimming and such the cicada situation went crazy. There are bazillions of them flying around and landing every where ; they are no longer fun and interesting. So be sure the windows in your houses have screens...don't want to let the bugs in :)

  7. That little bear seems very happy in his house, wrinkled or not. I worked half days when my kids were little and spent summers getting them from one camp activity to another. When Chris was ten he was so happy that I quit work and he didn't have to go places. One week later it was "Mom, I'm bored. There's nothing to do."

  12. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I agree-it is too humid to work even early in the morning like my usual routine!
    I am enjoying the a/c and doing some sewing when it's like this! The blue and cream quilt is a beauty-yes, make one to keep!

  13. It's always good to dig right to the bottom of the scrap bucket. You don't want to let any gems hide too long! I hope the roller skating went well.
