Hot and Humid in Michigan

Rain yesterday, more rain this morning and now it is very humid.  But it won't stop me from sewing....lol

Here is the latest 15 Minute Play BOM.  "Courthouse Steps"    I plan on embroidering the name of the BOM, my name, and the date finished on this block.  I love making fabric from scraps. 

The latest Barbara Brackman CW block. 

This is Block 13 of the Farmers Wife quilt.  I draw the blocks up on EQ5 and then print up the rotary cutting instructions.  I made the mistake of printing up the instructions for an 8" block and didn't realize it till I was finished.  So I reprinted instructions for a 6" block.  Now I have one to go with my CW blocks and one for FW blocks.

Today I plan on finishing up blocks 14-16.

And finally......Drum roll Please.......

My granddaughter Cassidy turns "9" today.  Hubby had the day off yesterday and was able to go to his first Cassidy baseball game.  She went 4 for 4. 

Happy Birthday Cassidy....We love you.

So I'm off to my sewing room...  Hope you are able to do something quilty today.

Hugs, Cat

All the blocks are great! I have made that same mistake using EQ to make my block patterns. I may have a table runner by the time I am done. LOL!

Your CW blocks are looking great. Can't believe that you are making FW at the same time. You go girl!

First and foremost, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Cassidy! It has been hot and humid here in the Northeast too. I finally went into the pool because it was too hot in the house.
It seems like you are on a roll with all of your blocks, they look great.

So fun to work with scraps.
Talk about humidity! I just walked the dogs in it - reading blogs is the best thing to do to cool off ;o)
I've thought about starting the farmers wife quilt. Looks like a great project!
Remember when you were nine? A wonderful age to be!
