Dear Quilting friends,

Despite the very hot weather we have had, my flowerpots have managed to stay alive and healthy. They provide a beautiful array of color out on my deck. There is a big brown squirrel that comes every day and eats some of the leaves off my castor bean plant. This, of course, drives my cat crazy.

I can’t believe how fast the summer is going. I drove by Waverly High School the other day and their sign indicated that school would resume on August 24th. It seemed like school just got out for the summer. My daughter teaches first grade in the Detroit area. She reminded me the other day that I had promised to make four new floor cushions and two birthday capes for her classroom. Every few years I have to remake something different in her classroom because the kids have worn it out. So I had better get busy finishing those so I can concentrate on quilting.

I haven’t really done much sewing this summer, but have admired all the wonderful quilts that I have seen in show and tell at both guild meetings and some of my small groups. To get myself inspired, I went to an open sew at an area quilt shop. I took along a paper piecing project that I had wanted to get started for a long time. And it worked. Now I am excited again to quilt and to keep working on this quilt top. I have several quilt retreats coming up, so my goal is to finish this project over the next two retreats.

And speaking of retreats, check out the information in the newsletter about the CCQG fall retreat. It is a great time to spend time sewing with your friends and see so many new projects that people are working on - like a mini quilt show!

I hope you have all enjoyed your summer so far and found inspiration for your quilting.

So happy sewing everyone!
