Not Good Enough!

Oh, I did think I would put a lot of this quilt together today - sadly I'm still affected by this darned heat! I'll get into 'My Studio' early tomorrow morning - hopefully it will be pleasant then. Time runs away on us and I thought I must pop in to say hello!Not even two miserable blocks done - but they are 14" blocks! This quilt is from Rachel Griffiths 'Impromptu' - so fresh, crisp and lovely. The original is quite large, mine will be just a small lap quilt - nice to play with and have on hand!Part of my 'little' family DD, Danielle, SIL Adrian and the twins - eight in just a few days! -Heidi and Byron. They were having a romp around on my lounge before heading off to the beach last Sunday. Best place to be these days and we have a lovely one just ten minutes walk away.
Now I'm no photographer, but I think I managed to capture the splendour of this gorgeous sunset, late one afternoon through the week - this is looking towards the beach - doesn't that make you enjoy the beauty we have around us?

Happy weekend!

What a lovely family shot you've captured. The sunset is a beauty, you're lucky to live so close to the ocean. The quilt blocks are very fresh looking.

I agree, it is hard to sew when the weather is so hot. You have alovely family, Happy 8th Birthday, and the sunset, WOW you did catch that one beautifully, thanks for sharing.

Yes, roll on Autumn and some cooler days. I've hardly sewn a stitch all year!
I love the family shot and happy birthday to the soon to be 8YOs.
