my (still somewhat cluttered) cutting table, ready to go-
It's busy over here.
Summer is in full swing, kids are out of school, we have swimming lessons to be to every day, and it is supposed to be 105 degrees tomorrow. Yikes. Summer!
I've been working like crazy finishing up book stuff, working on a few random assignments, gearing up to photograph the book next week, and mom is flying in later this week so we can work on our next fabric line.
Like I said, busy!
Last summer I made Farmers Wife blocks to keep my sanity when I was stuck inside, and this year I plan to finish up Farmers Wife, sew along with the Fat Quarter Shop Vintage Modern BOM, and dig into my stack of Summersville that is calling my name.
Anyway, I was trying to figure out a few other summer projects and decided a visit to the Thimble Blossoms/Bonnie and Camille flickr group was long overdue. Good grief you guys are awesome! Here were just a few of the many (many) projects that caught my eye... and made me want to sew. Now!
(Click on the photo for more info on who made the quilt, links to blogs, flickr streams, etc. The pattern or book will be linked in the title. Hope that makes sense.)

See what I mean? I could keep going and show them all, or you could hop over to the flickr group, take a look around and leave all these girls some love. Thank you so much for sharing your photos with me. Every time I see something made from one of my patterns or made from our fabric it makes me ridiculously happy inside. Even when it is 105 degrees outside. So really, thanks. :-)
One more thing, leave a comment here telling me what you are working on this summer and I'll send one of you some Marmalade. Though I can't promise it won't be melted. It's really hot here. (Did I mention that?)
