WIP Wednesday: Summer Runnin’

IMG_0095-1-1
Ah, summer. That time of the year when I spend entire days in the car, just shuttling the girls from one lesson/activity to the next. Looks like nice weather out there, does it? I wouldn’t know, I’ve been in an air-conditioned car all week. LOL.

 

Oh, but look! I did manage to remove the paper from my completed kaleidoscope blocks and press them. And my 6-year-old helped me put them up on the design wall. Progress!! : )
And my kitchen project is proceeding. Sort of kind of. I’m building onto the top of my existing kitchen cabinets, so that they extend all the way to the ceiling. It’s been made interesting by the fact that have never built anything, ever in my life. (Please note that this has not stopped me from buying lots of power tools over the last month.) So it’s been a learning experience, but I think I’m on track. And I’m really enjoying it, so I hope to continue putting those power tools to work!

Let’s see, who’s bringing us today’s WIP Wednesday? It’s the one and only Fat Quarter Shop!

What’s new at FQS? They are super psyched about their new exclusive Aurifil thread boxes! In four colorways and three weights, these boxes have your thread all needs covered. I can attest that the Tart colorway is especially delish. : )

    Yes that Tart selection is gorgeous. I've never had Aurifil thread, but everyone seems to love it. Mine is mostly in winter. Our kids don't really do summer sport, which I'm sooo thankful for, as that lets us do what we want, when we want over summer, and I must say I love it that way. xx

    Those new Aurifil collections are beautiful. And I will say a little prayer that your car air conditioning stays working all summer long. 🙂

    Thanks so much for this opportunity! I'm not working on much as I'm at a two week church conference in Utah, but waiting for me at home are a bunch of lovely HSTs just waiting for me to turn them into a churn dash quilt.

    Your kaleidoscope blocks look fantastic and kudos to you for learning carpentry or whatever it is one does with power tools to create cabinetry! I know what you mean about kids' summer activities cutting into mommy's sewing time. Tomorrow I've promised to take mine to Carowinds to ride roller coasters, but I would rather be sewing!!
