    I have not been on in a while. I had to go to PA as my dad is in the hospital. I'm home now and playing catch up.
    Everyone has done a beautiful job this month. Love all the quilts.

    I have been away for a bit having some medical tests done. I got back just in time to welcome MsGrace's lovely quilt she sent me. The little embroidered girl is really me when I was a child with my bike all day long. Thank you so much for this sweet summer charmer McGrace, I really love it.

    Thanks very much, cat, for posting a pic of the black and yellow quilt I received from you. It literally brightened my day. The yellow reminds me of the hot summer sun that has been keeping our north Georgia temps at all-time record highs. Today it was 106 with a "real feel" of 114! Yours will be on its way soon...still catching up after my extended illness.

    Sure, the storms and power outages over in the eastern side of country have delayed in them responding on their quilts. But I do know that handi likes hers and reported she received it and starshine reported that house is shut down from no power and post office said arrived so will hear shortly I am sure. Probably sitting in mailbox just waiting for her. Starshine reported no damage to house just no power but she will be checking in on it.

    needlegrammy, i'm sorry to have missed you! i'm sure your mind was on other things! i will pm my phone and address. we will be away a week in august, hope that's not when you'll be here! it's my only planned trip all year!
    my dear sister lives in dc and has been without power since friday or saturday last. her street is closed off with crime scene tape, probably all they had , due to a large tree that took down the wires with its fall. they are spending alot of time on the front porch. we rec'd only rain.
    haven't heard from my july partners yet but since this is a big vacation week, i'll just assume they are off vacating. i'm finishing up a tumbler quilt and have plenty more things to work on, so i'll keep busy til i hear from them.

    and of course, i must say the new quilts to have come in are Gorgeous! the fun just keeps on coming!! lovely work by all!

    Kris I am so happy that you liked the quilt I made for you! Also, I'm very impressed with your knowledge of quilt history! I had to look up "Broderie perse appliqué". When I made the quilt, it was more like "Ooohhh, look at the pretty rust colored roses!" LOL! I was trying to incorporate the color rust for you and also the cardinal is your state bird, but i thought it was about time a gal cardinal got her share of the spotlight. I printed her out on fabric and then used watercolored pencils and permanent ink to color and feather her. And the fall themed panel is all flowers and leaves from our garden. You were a wonderful partner Kris and I love the Mountain Dreams quilt you sent to me!!!

    You are right, I did get a lot of chuckles over the chicken guesses! The poem did sound like it would be a hen.

    We were gone over the last 7 days, helping my daughter move from NY city to NC and get settled in, in the midst of violent storms and scorching heat. It hit 112 degrees one day! Now that we are home again, we're too pooped to toot. But North Carolina is SO BEAUTIFUL! My daughter is going to love living there!


    I missed all the beautful quilts as they were featured here. Each of you did a beautiful job! I'd had a sneak preview of Lynn's (sewbeadit) and knew needlegrammy was in for a wonderful treat! It's so fun reading everyone's reaction to their quilts... it's like you give each other a little "Christmas" each month!
    What I love best is seeing how very different everyone's quilt is and all the lovely ways people came up with making a summer themed quilt! What a talented and fun group of ladies there are here!

    Lara, that is a wonderful quilt you made. Just beautiful. I have been loving seeing all of them come in, are there more to come yet? I am going to go check out what exactly Broderie perse applique is so that I can be an informed quilter! Will probably forget it by tomorrow though,lol.

    I just mailed out my doll quilt to my partner on Tuesday. I am sorry for the delay. My mother passes away at 91. I was away for 2 weeks, and then we had Hurricane/Tropical Storm Debby visit. I received my doll quilt for June, and just love it. I do like this swap. Thank you! Cuppy
