Design Wall

Happy Hump Day!
This week on my Design Wall I have two quilts that are almost finished!. Lazy Sunday only needs two borders sewn on and then a finish. This will be my project tonight after work today.

Lazy Sunday
Next up this week is Maltese Circles. This is my UFO for August. The blocks were won from Sunshine Quilt Guild block of the month awhile back. All it needs is sashing and a couple of small borders. Hope to have it finished up by the end of the week.

Have a great rest of the week and check back to see my progress on Sunday. Hope to have a positive update on the Stash Report.

Greetings from Arnold CA, Home of the Big Trees.

It has been a busy couple of weeks, since my last post. This week I am in the beautiful Sierra Mountains in a little town called Arnold. Not far up the road from Arnold is Big Trees Park, home to some of the largest Redwood trees in the state. It is also home to one of my favorite places to Beaver Creek.

I am also getting in a little sewing this week, working on Lazy Sunday.

Purple Border pieces.

Trimming Triangles.
Happy Sewing!

All of the pieces are cut for the sashing, cornerstones and pieced borders, so once I finish the Sunday Star Blocks, the pieced borders will be next. Two weeks left to finish this UFO and many pieces to go!

Sunday Stash Report

Back home today from Mammoth Lakes. Great weather and even more beautiful scenery with all the water everywhere. Mammoth had a record snowfall this year, so there is still quite a bit of snow hanging around, and all the lakes are full. Below are a couple of the lakes that we visited.

Virginia Lake in background.

Arrowhead Lake.

Nothing added for the stash this week and nothing used. Tomorrow I will give an update on my Lazy Sunday. I did finish another Lucy Boston block on the drive, along with a few more DJ blocks below.

Cabin 34
This week DH and I are celebrating out 5th Anniversary up in Mammoth Lakes. We are staying in a cute cabin at Tamarack Lodge on Twin Lakes. It is a beautiful setting. There is still quite a bit of snow up here especially above 9000 ft, which makes many of our favorite hiking trails out of reach.

Crystal Crag
Crystal Craig is one of our favorite hikes, but still too much snow, so cannot hike very far on the trail. We did hike out to Parker Lake- which is always a spectacular place to go. It is a glacier fed lake and very blue.

Not too much accomplished on the sewing front. One DJ block completed and some sewing for the first block for Lazy Sunday. I have set up a cozy sewing station in our cabin, but it has been much too beautiful here to spend much time inside!

Check back later this week to see if I have made any progress.😊

Design Wall

This week involved a lot of cutting for Lazy Sunday, a Bonnie Hunter pattern, that was originally a Mystery Quilt from Quiltmaker magazine in 2013. I will be taking this project along on vacation next week to Mammoth Lakes. DH and I are celebrating our 5th Anniversary and I hope to get in some hiking, sewing, and Skiing in July!

This quilt will definitely keep me busy for July! Hope you are making progress on your UFO's this summer.
