This and That.....

It is so bloomin' hot in Ohio....way too hot to spend time outside, unless you are out early in the morning.  My poor much neglected garden needs some attention, but it is just going to have to wait.  I will stay in the AC and work on projects while Flanders keeps me company.....
Flanders appreciates the AC, too - can you tell?

I am pretty much committed to doing Zig-Zag quilts with the Far, Far Away fabric....quilts intended for the yet-to-be-born twins.  As I mentioned in the previous post...I am using half square triangles.  To include Rapunzel or the Owl and the Pussycat in the zig and zag right side up....I have been flipping my diagonal line for half of the squares.  That way I can choose squares that feature the characters right side up.
That probably seems fairly clear to most, but sometimes the simplest things are the most perplexing!
I have also spent some time straight line machine quilting.  My shoulder feels every stitch!
That's about it for today....time to figure out dinner and act like I am earning my keep around here!
