I can hardly believe it myself, but this darn EPP Honeycomb quilt is finally almost done!
I posted this picture on IG yesterday and said I was at the point of hating it. I come to that point with nearly every quilt I make. In this case, I am not happy with the quilting lines that look like they should be in the ditch between the dark and light pieces. If I had dined for the ditch, the spacing would have been off. Not that my spacing is exactly “on.” It will be better when my nose is more than 6 inches away.
I went to Joann’s the other night to get a new thimble. I realized when I was there that these new Tim Holtz fabrics were 60% off with a coupon!
I’ll be making a very special Quilt of Valor in the next few months and these fabrics will be my starting point. BTW, the thimble I bought was the wrong size.
I know it has been very hot in places around the US this summer, but check out these temps:
At midnight in the far away country where Daughter #2 is, the temp was 93 degrees F, but felt like 113 with the humidity factored in. I find it funny that the weather app on my phone calls this “wind chill.” I am not going to complain about heat.
Hubby changed the oil in Daughter #1’s car last weekend. Big E was such a helper!
And lastly, has anyone ever seen this before?
He is only about 3-4 inches tall. It appears to be an early Mickey Mouse figure. Japan is stamped on the back of his neck. I found it in a bag of finger puppets I bought at a yard sale recently.
How’s that for a random collection of thoughts? LOL
Have a great day!
