Peaceful Sunday

It's been such a nice Sunday. Started out nice and sunny, not too hot, birds singing their little hearts out. By now it's clouded over, but still nice. I did get my laundry in off the line just in case Mother Nature decides to give us a little shower of rain.

Last weekend, Memorial Day weekend, everyone else's plans took precedence over mine, so I made up my mind I would sew this weekend and I did:

 I finally got the rows of blocks for my Bricks and Stepping Stones sewed into a top. I plan to put a narrow white border around it and then a wider print border of black and bright colors. It's coming out to be kind of an odd size, not square but hardly enough difference in dimensions to be called rectangular. I don't care, it is what it is. You will not believe how hard it was to get that photo. My camera has been misbehaving. Sometimes it wants to turn out photos that are all pink and blurry. Something with the auto-focus I think. I messed with it a bit on different settings & finally got it to take a decent photo. Do you suppose there's a new camera in my not too distant future??

Thanks to funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Orchard Library Foundation and donations we have some lovely new public use computers at the library:

 Patrons are loving those 22" screens, but they sure make mine at the desk seem puny.

Hope you're all enjoying your Sunday as much as I am.


  1. It's ages since I went round the HeartStrings blogring and I'm finally catching up! LOVE your bricks & SS quilt - such cheerful colours! I agree that June disappeared before we got a chance to notice ... I'm grabbing July by the horns and getting busy stitching :)
