Today in the United States, we celebrate Memorial Day. We celebrate those who have served, those who came back and those who didn't. The words Thank You aren't by any means sufficient.
Due to Tropical Storm Beryl, which made landfall nearby, we've had a quiet weekend inside due to the heavy rain and high winds. We watched a couple of movies and I sewed a bit when I felt comfortable having my sewing machine plugged in. We're fortunate that we're not experiencing the flooding or the power outages that some of the city (currently 22,000) is experiencing. We did have one downed tree limb but it wasn't one that caused any damage. We've been very lucky.
Here is what I accomplished this weekend - seven Cotton Club blocks. As you know, my mojo has been hard to raise lately - I think work is getting most of me these days. This weekend, I enjoyed the time I spent at the sewing machine. It felt good!
I'm now all caught up and even have this months blocks completed! It's been important to me to stay up to date on these blocks because they take so much time. They're only 5.5". I can't see sitting down and making all 40 something of them one after another.
For those of you stitching Ann Dale, did you see this post? Or this progress post from Lanie? Both have made me feel completely comfortable about stitching Ann as charted. Lanie made a change in the over one box but has otherwise stitched as originally charted making a few color changes. Both are absolutely beautiful! Expect to see a progress pic in the next couple of weeks.
Wishing you happy stitches!
