… is definitely in my future. Remember the Joseph’s Coat shabby chic project? It feels like forever since I’ve worked with my favourite shabby chic fabrics, so once the red and white top is done it will be the shabby projects that get some attention for a week or two.
I’ve got lots of shapes printed on fabrics and cut out, waiting to be added to the Joseph’s Coat.
And lots and lots of the shapes for the shabby chic Yin Yang blocks are ready. As are more shapes for the Memories of Smudge Yin Yang blocks, although not shown here.
But the first thing I’m doing after the red and white is done is finish Pickled Ladies. The border for it is now completely designed and won’t take long to piece at all.
So as of now, I think the projects on which I’ll work next are:
- Pickled Ladies
- Joseph’s Coat
- Shabby Yin Yang
- Memories of Smudge Yin Yang
- Summer Picnic Dish
- Monet and Tiffany Lamp quilts
Of those seven, only one is going to involve a lot of piecing. The others will be relatively quick to finish piecing.
There’s a car race held here in early July. Every year before the race, they have a racecar balanced on four teacups outside the entrance to one of the major retailers in the building complex. And every year I think we need to get a photo of it. This time we did.
I can hardly believe those dainty china teacups are holding the weight of the car, but they are. What I’d love to see is how on earth they manage to get the car balanced on the cups and then how they remove the car when they take down the display.
Put a toy on a table and Baxter’s right there. He knows where his toys are at almost all times.
Even with the air conditioning on, it’s been warm in the apartment. Baxter knows how to stay cool. Mr. Q.O. captioned this one “So cute, aren’t I?”
