Design Wall Monday and Weekly Goals

Still plugging along on the YoYo project.  I have 23 complete blocks.


13 more to go.  The center portions are done, I just have to add a row of sashing YoYos to each one.  You can't tell from the picture--but that stack of blocks is a foot high.   Please see everyone's Design Walls at Patchwork Times.

Goals for the week--
  1. One YoYo block
  2. One side of binding sewn down
  3. Work on a UFO
That will keep me busy.  I also have a Dr. appt and 3 days of volunteering.

The weather has been beyond gorgeous!  Saturday we attended a wedding in the park.  Normally a 2pm wedding in the park in July is hot and miserable. But Saturday the weather was perfect--low 70's and a slight breeze.  It could not have been more perfect.  And the cooler weather continues.  I'm taking full advantage of it--the windows are open and the air conditioning is OFF. 

Last week our crops had a wonderful rain--somewhere between 4.5 and 7 inches.  And a week later another inch.  Ken has cheered up considerably (the farm wives out there know what I'm talking about) and now he's working on weeds.  There are areas you are unable to spray and he's out with the tractor mower.  Later this fall we can have it sprayed and won't damage nearby crops.

Love that pile of blocks! Nice job.

It has been cooler here, too, but not that cool. A nice shower came through yesterday afternoon.

Love your pile of yo-yo blocks! I've started one, too, and your idea of using the same fabric to frame it, is fabulous! What's your plan for the yo-yos?

Love dropping in to see what you are doing. The yo-yo are appealing, but I don't travel much any more so I will just view from afar!
