My goodness I missed DWM and Anything Goes Mondays, but I'm right on track for Tuesday - Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story, Freemotion by the River with Connie, Sew Cute at Blossom Hearts and Show and Tell Tuesday with Freshly Squeezed, see the buttons on the sidebar. Plenty there for the rest of the week too! Well it is definitely a slow sewing summer. I've got a few blocks done on the Lorisquarepants but that's about it. April's gone to the APQS spa in Iowa, oh someone needs to ship me away for a spa week :) Here's some of the blocks in various stages. Hmm doesn't look like there are over 100 fabrics in there does it. I"m a little concerned abotu some of those reds being a bit over powering.
Ialos got some riding in this weekend. Just a little over 54 miles this weekend. That was pretty sweet. On Sunday we went for a 36 mile ride. We stop at a little ice cream place in Hebron IL that is just adorable. They have gardens, flowers and vegetables growing like crazy! There's a little free library box on the side of the window and the metal shed out back has those fun letter magnets. The ice cream is awesome, I was too busy eating it to get a picture.
Prairie wildflower of the week is wild bee balm - blooming like crazy on the prairie out here. This was on the Hebron Trail.
