Where in the World is Molly Flanders????

I wish I could say I have been on a wonderful vacation {some place cool}...
but, alas, I have not.
Just busy with silly stuff...nothing too much fun.

I have been trying to stay cool - thank goodness for central air! 
 chugging away on the wedding quilt....

  
it has been fun to work on this and some embroidery while watching the olympics in the evening :)  I think I am in good company...it sounds like many of you are doing the same!  How fun!

And I had a notion to play with some triangles again.  Using the easy technique for piecing these arrows, I used all patterned fabric {no white or solid triangles}


and then what if we changed the arrangement of these arrows...


just playin'


In my class there has been some amazing playing going on...
like this solid coin quilt from Becky!


and the back is going to be equally as wonderful!


hopefully, I will be able to get to some real stitching this week....
I think I may have hit the mid summer doldrums....I need some motivation.  
Happy Monday!
hope you are jazzed and working on something exciting!

The triangles are gorgeous, I love them side by side! Like they're pointing up and down.
I also love that you said 'jazzed' :)

Your "playing" is always so pretty. :0)
We have been enjoying the Olympics as well.
It sure beats being outdoors. I am longing
for fall and winter something fierce! :0)

I like your arrows, very pretty! And the solid color quilt is inspiring me.
I'm in need some motivation too, I think I've got the end of summer blahs! I've been keeping cool and working on a small knitting project while watching the Olympics.
Hope you are staying cool and I can't wait to see the wedding quilt!
