The Live Oaks are releasing their last batch of pollen. The rain helped to wash away a lot of it, gratefully!
I made the camouflage backpack for my oldest grandson's birthday.
He enjoys being in the woods by their house and doing reconnaissance so I can only imagine the adventures he will take this bag .
I wrapped up the packages to mail to him........Nyki had to scent the box first to send a message to their household cats!
I decided to tackle a long postponed quilt. Caleb had given me a bag of old T-shirts for a memory quilt almost a year ago. I have decided the layout, a 5 x 6 block design with denim colored sashing so I needed 30 12 1/2" squares. I dug out, sorted and cut out squares-some the front and some both front and back.
I then pressed interfacing to the back of the squares to stabilize the stretchy cotton knits for quiltmaking. This press sure saved me time though it did heat up the sewing room!
This is the pile of t-shirt bottoms I will bag up for use in the garage for rags.
I whipped up a pair of cotton socks with stretchy Paton yarn-I used only one skein for summer weight shorty socks!
