The Minnesota Block
This post should come with a warning...may be unable to understand author at some point. I was up at 3:30 this morning, dropping my daughter off at church so that she can depart for Arizona. A week long missions trip to an Apache Indian reservation. I feel a little "off" at the moment. This forty-nine year old body is ill equipped for early morning performance.

It looks like it's going to be a wonderful, sunny summer day. The temps are rising and though the grass needs a major trimming, I will pretend not to notice. It's a day for fun, not chores. Oh, what to do?
"My Little Kitten" for Benartex
I believe I will be starting with a lot of coffee. I'll then proceed to a cold shower and more coffee. The sun is too bright to waste on dozing. What will you do on a bright summer day?
Love the kitty fabric! So Vintage looking!ReplyDelete
Love your Minnesota Block. Love your "Thought to Ponder" also. I needed that!ReplyDelete
Renee, Your blocks are coming along beautifully. We are having a family get together this afternoon. I agree it's too beautiful a day for chores!ReplyDelete
I see you like Presencia thread too! Ever want to trade colors let me know!ReplyDelete
Love the quilt block and fabric. I am cleaning and getting things ready for a trip we are taking on thursday to Maryland and our niece's weddingReplyDelete
ha,ha I've done the same thing before. Taking someone to the airport in the wee hours. By 9:00AM I am ready for a nap ;-)ReplyDelete
Beautiful new block! Just love your fabric choices!ReplyDelete
I understand about the late night/early morning drop offs; it's the story of our lives in the height of FFA spring competitions.
I hope your daughter has a wonderful time on her mission trip; a great opportunity to visit another world while being able to stay in the U.S. (I used to tell teachers coming out here they'd have a great time if they liked going to foreign countries without losing the rights of citizenship.)
I love your fabric! I think I will try to catch-up blog, work a puzzle with my neighbor, and sew some napkins for Odelia's lunch box.ReplyDelete
I was up early, too although w/o any good reason. Just couldn't sleep! We have a nice sunny day here and I'm enjoying just getting caught up at home.ReplyDelete
Certainly sit on the porch sip the coffee slowly and watch the grass grow more. I do it every morning I can. It makes things look much more in perspective. Enjoy...smiles...ReneeReplyDelete
That block is gorgeous! We like to take the kids to the park on warm Saturday mornings.ReplyDelete
I spent the day picniking with my family and walking around town window shopping. Then home and getting ready to entertain friends today by baking a mixed berry pie and marinating chicken for the grill:>) Hope you were able to stay awake! This is the sunshine we will be dreaming of this winter:>)ReplyDelete
On a hot summer day, I eat ice cream! And try to stay near the a/c (I'm a wuss who much prefers winter to the dog days of summer). Adore your polka dotted two-tiered display. So cute!ReplyDelete
