Earlier this week I made this block as there was one that just didn’t fit in and had to be replaced. The more I look at the blocks I’ve made for my POTC quilt, the more I realize just how drawn I am to shades of purple. Now all the blocks for the top are made, the cream surrounding hexagons are on more than half of them and the only thing I have left to sort out is what I’ll use as the connecting squares where 4 blocks meet.
E-mail on Wednesday was completely unreliable. Among other things that didn’t get delivered, I realized Wednesday night that many comments that were left on my blog on Wednesday didn’t arrive in my inbox. So if I owe you a response, please bear with me while I sort this out. I wonder if the extreme heat and humidity we’re having is affecting our ISP?
Wednesday night I started on another Pink Ice block. As I like to match my thread to the fabric I”m stitching, I ended up using a Mettler 50/3 thread. I can’t believe how thick that is in comparison to the Mettler 60/2 thread or the YLI Heirloom thread I love using. Aside from being a struggle to thread the needle with it, I felt as though it was harder to pull through the fabric. I’m curious about the Superior Threads MasterPiece thread and will, when I see it here, buy a spool to try. Have you tried it? What do you think of it?
When Mr. Q.O. was downtown on Monday, he also got this shot of the flowers outside a restaurant. Doesn’t this look like a great spot to spend some time on a summer day and just watch the world go by?
Wednesday was another extremely hot and humid day. Today is … well, more of the same. The humidex readings have been the highest I can ever recall. While we rarely have to put the air conditioning on in the living room, this week it has been on daily.
Mr. Q.O. has been playing with some photo editing software and this picture of Lester taken on Wednesday is a result.
Smudge spent some time on the windowsill on Wednesday. At one point there was a robin he could hear but not see. The tail was swishing and he was very intently staring out the window.
