We had blessed rain yesterday.  When I heard the magical sound of the drops hitting the roof, all I could do was grin. To celebrate, I made a mexican frittata for breakfast and then spent most of the morning holed up in my sewing room.  I am having a love affair with blue and red.  What can I say?
I've ordered some wonderful fabric from  But I cannot show it yet ... it's a big surprise!  I'm so excited about it that I probably won't be able to keep it under wraps for long.
I've been trying to avoid those stars - auditioning different prints and such.  What do you think of this?  Too cheesy?  Big cop out?  I NEED to finish this piece!  I really would welcome any and all suggestions.
Found this great basket at TJ Maxx - a home/fashion discount store.  It reminds me of the selvage pieces I see on the internet.  The material seems to be some kind of plastic - it's perfect for this -
A storage place for current patterns - ones in use and ones about to be used.  I have issues when it comes to great baskets and vessels of any kind.  Needful stuff - must have them all!
Some of my vintage watering cans came out today - it's beginning to really feel like summer around here!

What are you making with the blue/red blocks?

I say go for the star fabric.

Love those long-spouted vintage watering cans. It's nice that you even use them.

Love the blue and red blocks. So pretty. I'm a little iffy on the star fabric, but if you like it and it will get it finished then I say go for it.
