It's a hot one here in Music City today! The sun is shining brightly .....
I couldn't resist using the last scrap of my little YELLOW suns fabric for one of the Lone Starburst blocks this month! All I have left now is a tiny piece - and it went into the crumbs jar. I just can't throw away even a scrap of this sweet fabric - it has brought me so many smiles :*D
Here are the blocks I managed to get done yesterday for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. I'll finish up the remaining two sections today, and maybe put some of them up on the design wall to see how they will look with the colored sections all mixed up scrappy-style!
Also today, I plan to do some Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy's Quilts. I'm almost done with the LAST Promises & Borders block - hooray!!!! This is a banner-type block that spans the width of the quilt....
I did have to make one little adjustment to Jenny's pattern on the "o" in each of the promise tracings .... can you see the original line tracing at the right of it in this picture below? When that was stitched out, it looked more like an "a" to me, so I took it out and moved the transition line to the top of the "o" - now I'm much happier with it!
Aren't these little birdies SO cute????
All that remains to be done is the green leaves and the centers of the flowers. When this block is done, I'll be able to sash these blocks and put them together for a great UFO floppy finish - WhooHoo!!!!
My husband has shown me time and again what a true Father really is.....
And now both of our sons are Fathers, and we couldn't be prouder of the wonderful job they are doing raising the next generation!

This is what I made for my sweet hubby yesterday to celebrate Father's Day....
YUM!!! Meatloaf made from my momma's recipe! This is his favorite meal! Of course, most of you know that cooking is NOT my forte, but when the Best Father in the World asks for meatloaf - he gets it!!! For side dishes, I made mashed potatoes, green beans, broccoli cole slaw, pickled beets, and toasted garlic-butter ciabatta bread! Yes, we chowed down!!!
Hope you all have a wonderful & blessed Father's Day!!!
Hugs & Blessings!
