Happy Monday! The red geraniums are quietly reminding me to appreciate the simple, common beauty in the everyday. Hope you are finding beauty in your surroundings too!

Happy Friday! Almost September?!?! Not sure where all the time went but I am looking forward to Fall. Have a great weekend!

Happy Friday! I hope your weekend brings you unexpected beauty. Just like this mystery grevillea that's blooming for the first time. #aussieplantsinsandiego

Stinka 2010-2018 She was an amazing cat: funny, friendly and full of her own ideas. Losing her so suddenly and unexpectedly last week has been tough. She is greatly missed. Things are not going to be the same here without her and her antics. #bestcat #blackcatsrule

Happy Friday! Hope you've had a good week. Stay cool this weekend.

Happy Friday! Can you believe it's August already? Doesn't seem possible. The heatwave continues here with higher than normal temperatures as well as humidity. At least the Hong Kong orchid is happy. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Happy Friday! The Gypsy Wife quilt top is done. I grabbed some quick photos on the jelly bean rocks. (They're the perfect color backdrop, coincidentally.) I do love the masculine feel of this Parson Gray version of @jenkingwell 's pattern. And using someone else's pattern was a good exercise in paying attention. Have great weekend, everyone! #masculinequilts #parsongrayfabric #freespiritfriday #aussiequiltdesigners #f

So, it's been too hot for sewing. Or doing much of anything really. Except sock knitting in front of the fan. I finished the Heyday socks (3rd photo) and stocked up on more @hedgehogfibres Skinny Singles. These are Beach Bunny and Bubble. Because you can never have too much yarn (or fabric). Also, I needed a little self-reward after the drama Stinka and I went through last week. A stray cat showed up in the middle of the night and Stinka chased it off. Only it ran straight into a skunk on the way out and Stinka, poor girl, was too close to the action. 🙀 Bathing a cat is never fun but it's especially unpleasant at 1:30 a.m. when you're trying to get rid of skunk spray. 🙄 We survived but it was exhausting for us both. So, yeah, comfort yarn for me. 😁

Happy Friday! A bit more progress on the @jenkingwell Gypsy Wife quilt. Two more sections to go! Enjoy the weekend, everyone! #aussiequiltdesigners #masculinequilts #freespiritfriday #gypsywifequilt

Happy Monday! Summer has arrived with a vengeance and this heatwave makes it hard to be productive. I guess Mother Nature is telling us all to slow down. Stay cool!

Happy Friday! Progress is being made on my Mr.@amybutlerdesign (David Butler aka Parson Gray) version of @jenkingwell Gypsy Wife quilt. Slow and steady, right? Have a safe, fun weekend! #masculinequilts #freespiritfriday #freespiritfabrics #aussiequiltdesigners #friendsoffriends #scrapquilts #quilttherapy

Happy Feline Friday! Take Stinka's advice and indulge in a little self-care this weekend. #blackcatsrule #blackcatsofinstagram #yarnandfabric #catsandquilts
