to do much of anything except veg in the house, unless I go to work.  The heat just drags me out and eats up my energy.  Too hot to work outside, too hot to do any housework except what has to be done, too hot to cook.  Guess you can tell I am not a summer person, right?  But having always gotten a good check mark for "makes good use of spare time", here are my latest finishes:

First up, here are the two latest Snowbound blocks:

Hope the colors came out OK.  My husbands screen has a yellow cast to it.

Here is a new BOM called "Under the Sea".  I have four of the blocks finished and two more almost completed.  I am trying to match colors and plants and things like that up between the blocks.  Details are most important.  Here are the first four blocks:

Sorry they are all wrinkly.  I really need to wash and block them, but I want to do them all at once in case the colors change.  If you are interested, I have a link to the series on my sidebar and they are still available for download.

I am pleased to report that I have only 3 more train blocks to complete, well more like 2-3/4's.  Then I can wash and block those and start playing with a layout.  Would you all like to help me design this one? (Well, at least the parts that have not designed themselves yet, LOL!)  I can photograph each embroidery and the fabrics I am playing with and either publish them here or email them to you.  I think that would be a lot of fun!  Let me know.
