Here in Kansas, this time of year, the grass should be brown from the hot summer time temperatures. This year, the grass is still green, I guess because we’ve had cool weather all summer, with lots of rainfall. We’ve had over 5″ of rain just this week. I don’t think we’ve even hit 100 degrees this summer. We only had 4 days in the 90’s for the entire month of July. That’s not right!! I love hot summer days! I’m getting ripped off this year.
To make things even worse. Look at what I’m seeing out my kitchen window.
There is a tree that’s already turning red! It’s too early for that!! I hope that doesn’t mean we’re going to have an early winter! That’s a depressing thought. Can you tell I don’t like winter? LOL!!
Oh well, on to quilting. My sister made this little wall hanging from some strips that she received at our guilds poker night a while back. I finally got it quilted for her.
I put the chubby leaves in the border and I thought I’d see how it looks with 2 vein lines instead of just one like I always put in there. I like the double vein look. I’ll have to do that more often.
I loaded a Laurel Birch panel quilt earlier today, so I guess I better get back to work on it. Have a nice day!

…and here I am praying for winter so I can go outside again! LOL!
It will be here before we know it! LOL!!
I’m with you — I hate winter! It just drags on forever, and I can’t be comfortable outside, so I spend less time with my animals than I’d like, poor things.
The double veins are nice — good job!
Winter does seem to go on fooooorrrrrreeeeevvvvveeeeerrrrrr. LOL!!!
Well you cof ould be in central TX where we have had 60+ days of 100+ degree days and our rainfall is way down for the year. It is hard to quilt or even sew in hot weather. Your quilting is beautiful.
Wow Lynn, that’s a long stretch of hot weather! We don’t seem to hit 100 very many days, we might have a week or so of extremely hot weather. But normally we’re in the 90’s this time of year. It’s really been a strange cool summer. They said July was the 3rd coolest on record since they started keeping records back in the late 1800’s. I sure wish I could send you some of this rain, and cooler weather!
