late summer bounty
Didn't we just check the zucchini vines yesterday?!?
That's a 2.5 litre pyrex bowl, for the sake of perspective. Apparently our tiny vegetable patch is not yet exhausted.
Today also witnessed delivery of some sewing-related goodies:
If you haven't yet explored Z & S Fabrics 50% off sale, you had better get your tush over there right now...it ends tomorrow. The site is easily overwhelmed by web traffic, so it takes some patience to get your order placed, but it's well worth it. I think the Kona solids are all sold out, but if you search patiently by manufacturer you'll find some treasures. This bundles includes some yardage of Kona snow and plum, and more "Miss Mod" prints for my Mystery Quilt.
I also received 20 little lovelies (Anchor pearl/perle cotton) from the U.K.
This fills out my stash of perle cotton very nicely...especially for someone who only just started to experiment with hand quilting. Advice and suggestions are most welcome!!
Last but certainly not least is my Big Birthday Present:
Advice and suggestions for getting started with EQ7 are also most welcome! Anyone for an EQ7-along?
I'd love to know what the last days of August have yielded in your neck of the woods!
