The weather is cooler and rainy and damp.
The attendance at services at the cemetery this morning was sparse.
Hopefully, because of the rain and not for a lack of interest in the event.
Another Memorial Day is upon us and we reflect, respect and relive.
And this afternoon, we sew, because we can, thanks to the service of those we remember today.
What's under your needle today?
Nothing patriotic under mine. Just bits and pieces of UFO's. That pile never seems to diminish.
The last few blocks of this group which uses a line of fabrics from Moda by Sandy Gervais. I forgot the name of the line, but it is still available at the Piecing With Poppers Quilting Center in West Greenwich, Rhode Island. Probably elsewhere too, but definitely there.
The last of the double four patches for this Fat Quarter Quilt.
And then some cutting and trimming.
"Yellow Brick Road" pieces...
Some half square triangles for another Fat Quarter Quilt...
And some pinwheels for blocks from Bonnie Hunter's "Smith Mountain Morning" quilt.
Once I finish the sewing, I will focus on the cutting, while watching the baseball game.
Enjoy your Memorial Day 2016!
Thanks to those who have ensured that we can have these relaxing and productive sewing days.
Louise, on the island reveling in the freedom to sew.
