As for today, I didn't get as much time to sew as I'd hoped. I did, however, get a start on the "To the Rescue" baby quilt that I cut out yesterday. Here's how it will look when it's finished:
Today I fused all the applique and did the top-stitching for the fireman's hat. Interestingly, the designer stated that the applique templates were already reversed, but you can see that the "1" was not. Oh well. I decided to leave it as is.
Also, I did all of the fusing and most of the topstitching for the hook and ladder truck.
When I'd taken it that far, it was time for me to stop. I needed to write this post and get ready to pick up my CSA share.
So what else did I do today? Well...I hooped the Gingerbread square block for the last time. Just the upper left corner needs stitching now.
And there it is. When that's all stitched, the block will be finished.
After that, I baked some zucchini bread. It was something to do with my CSA zucchini.
And then I went outside and did some watering. I notice that the bluest of the blue hydrangea is blooming.
Also, I promised you a picture of the purple hydrangea. I've only given you close-ups, but I wanted to show you how pretty the whole bush is. It's still quite small, but it has been prolific with its blossoms.
Here's a lawn ornament.
He always follows me around when I'm outside.
Also, two more sunflowers have bloomed. So far, only three of the six varieties are blooming. I'm curious to see what the rest will look like.
So, it's been a pretty full day. I still need to pick up my CSA share, and there's still much to do before I'm ready to call it a day.
It's the final curtain on June. Where does the time go?
