projects for today...

Good Morning, and Happy Tuesday!

Yesterday, I was able to do a bit of sewing and finished Block 6 for the Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along.

The pattern for Block 7 was released yesterday so that is on my sew list for today. We are half way through this project.

Also, I need to make some binding for this project. This is a table runner I ran across in my stack of un-quilted tops. And I found yet another table runner... need to do some "meandering" on it today, too. I will share them both later.

The best thing I found was a zip top bag full of Thimbleberries strips from my good friend Crazy'boutquilts. I had totally forgotten about these... AND more importantly, that tomorrow is the Thimbleberries Sew Day! I will be cutting 1.5 inch strips for my project... lots of strips!

I must need some ginkgo to improve my memory. I would settle for the tree as they are one of the most beautiful I have seen, except for the red oak in my backyard. I love the shape of the leaf, and its color change in the fall is a spectacular golden yellow.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit today. Make it a good one.

"O, thus be it ever when freemen shall stand,
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Dear favorite sister, gingko is beautiful but the fruit is very, very stinky. Better pick something else.
