Too Hot!

Tuesday's Sunshine Club at the Senior Center was filled with quilty fun! I gave a brief tutorial on binding a potholder to Mary. She and Meb were admiring all of Meb's candle mats.

They are all so pretty!

Sue was plugging away on her last batch of hip clips, a sleeve-fashion accessory that her granddaughter had been retailing.

As  for me, I worked on pressing my strip sets for the log cabin quilt border. I made five sets. Each one is made up of four or five strips of 2½" Civil War fabrics.

I tried laying out some of the log cabin blocks but soon discovered that their sizes are too uneven to use without a good trimming up session.
In the meantime, the very hot record-setting weather has brought the crabapple into full bloom!

There is a very subtle scent that just sort of smells like fresh laundry. Now, where are the bees?

 Stay cool and sew!

I used to love sitting under my blooming apricot tree and listen to the hummmm. Hope the bees show up soon.

Potholders are a project in the immediate future for me. The ones on hand are getting icky. Thanks for the reminder.

What is a hip clip?
