well it is a little progress

a wee bit, but progress. It was almost 100 degrees here today and the fans were not cutting it, so I decide to cut outside on the porch.

I cut over one hundred two and half inch strips, but then I needed to sew. So I took the machine out on the patio table on the porch, removed the cutting mat and sewed. I got most of the blocks for this quilt top together. It was a little windy, a little dusty, but I also made a little progress.

and then the bee got me. so I gather my stuff and headed for an ice pack. ah, progress.

Dearest Mary, I read your very kind comment on Minick and Simpson's blog about consideration for my behalf, and I have to thank you for your comment and consideration because it is more valuable to me then any fabric in the whole world. I hope Mary that if you like and need this fabric , you will win this opportunity, I can always wait , I have learned waiting is good and the right thing always comes to us at the right time. God bless and I hope you really win !!!! I did not want to post this on their blog because it would be a like a second entry, but I hope Laurie or Polly read this!!!

I had to read that several times to realize you meant an actual bee.
I just joined a virtual quilting bee, and let me tell you, you can be "gotten" by one of those, too. Feel better. Bleach helps. So does meat tenderizer.
