Summer project

Another hot (very hot) day. I am living in the shadows. I am not complaining because I enjoy the summer. But right now it is too hot to stay in the sun, so I sit on the shadow porch. And they say the warmth will continue.

Yesterday when I went to the quiltshop I discovered a new bundle of fabrics. Dark brown and turquoise. My favorite colours. There were many lovely fabrics, but these three came home with me. Together with a project my friend at the quilt shop and I started. We cut the first pieces yesterday and gave eachother some homework. Baste the front and back together and quilt the layers together. So that's what I did earlier today. Aren't these fabrics just lovely.
Later today, after the shop had closed, we met in the shop and continued on our project. Do you wonder what we are doing???? Wait and see LOL We cut the fabric and sewed it together. The shop is a chill place to be now when it's so hot outside. And we have big tables to work on. And we have everything handy in the shop if we need something.
Now I will continue on my ?????? LOL And I will show you tomorrow what it is!!!
Saying for today:
Summer's here and the time is
right for dancing in the street.
(Not me, but my DD have finished her last exam today and now she want to celebrate that school is soon to be over)

I love a mystery. It looks like you dressed to match your fabrics. Was that just a coincidence? :-)

Anita_T said...

I know what it is :-)))) and because of May Brit there will come a fabric package in the post with 16 different piceces of fabrics. I could not resist those lovely fabrics and had to buy some of them ;-D

Doodlebug Gail said...

You're making a bag aren't you? To match your pretty shirt perhaps. Love the colours - they look good on your and are so summery. Can't wait to see your next post!

Lovely fabrics - chocolate and turquoise is very 'in' for interior decor here in the UK at present

Hanne said...

I see a tote in the making :-)
Here it is to hot to sew other than in the evening. I am working on LH block # 1. Maybe it will be ready for stitchery during tomorrow ?
Looks like you and Irene had a good time with your new fabrics :-)

I am loving the aqua and turqoise combination. I think I need to put a quilt of those colors on my "to do" list.

Lovely fabric! I was a sucker for them and bought more than 3! :D I am guessing you are making a super cute bag. I bought enough to do a quilt, I loved it so much!

Juliann in WA said...

I can see that you like those colors because you are wearing them too!

Ms. Jan said...

Great fabrics~I can't wait to see your project!!

Libby said...

Hmmmm - what will it be? It's hard to wait until tomorrow *s*

Susan said...

Those *are* pretty fabrics. I've seen pink and brown, but not this pretty shade of blue. I can't possibly guess what you two are doing, even with the picture clues. What a great place to play, after hours! Is this warmth unusual for you?

Kim said...

Is your shoulder feeling better? Looks like you're ready to get sewing again!

Jenny said...

Pam said...

It looks like it's going to be good!!! I can't wait - but I guess I have to :))

meggie said...
