a long weekend…

I hope you all had a lovely holiday weekend! We lucked out and even though there was some rain (as has been the case ALL month long!), we also saw the sun and some warmer temperatures.

(photographic evidence that the sun was out!)

We took the opportunity to do a tiny bit of gardening – planting our 2 tomato plants and a bunch of basil (that’s about all the gardening I can handle!) – and spent the rest of the time just relaxing.

Max spent a lot of his time like this –

snoozing on the couch under the ceiling fan. I think he had the right idea!

I was so tempted to join him, but instead took the opportunity to sew together my HST blocks.

I remember now why it’s been so long since I’ve made a quilt with half square triangles… I love all the designs you can make, but I find the trimming of all those squares to be incredibly tedious!! (I don’t know how Rita does it!)

But now that that part’s done, I can sit back and enjoy this quilt top. I recently pulled out my old Windmill Whimsy quilt and was reminded how much I like the design, so I decided to make another, this time in this fun boyish color palette.

Now I just need to figure out a backing… preferably one without any more HSTs!
