This is the time of year that I'm grateful to be sewing in the basement - it's so much cooler down there! We're in a heat wave here, so I've been down there most of the day, but I just came up for a cool drink (details of that next...) and thought I'd share my latest project with you.
I designed this baby quilt months ago on EQ, but set it aside while I worked on higher priority projects. Today I was just in the mood to start something new, so that's exactly what I did. My blocks are done, and I just have to cut my sashing and borders then put it all together.
The patchwork strips are leftover from the big custom order of Fabric Covered Journals that I did a few months ago. I'm setting them in a background of white, but it's not quite solid. It's a subtle tone-on-tone of snow white with a modern circle design printed on it. I hope you can see the details in the next picture, but it's so hard to photograph white on white.
Now for the drink details... I'm on a juice smoothie kick these days, and it's especially refreshing on a scorcher like today. I threw together some frozen grapes (I keep a bag of these in the freezer), frozen mango, fresh pineapple, and a sprinkling of frozen chopped spinach. Added some water, then blended it all up with my handy-dandy new Ninja Pulse.
DEE-LICIOUS! Cold and super refreshing!
