It's been a week !!

First, the fun stuff.

We purchased a new sofa that as delivered this week. Honey Do thought it needed cushions, so I set about making them.

This first set were deemed too small, but they are so cute !!
I found the fabric at Hobby Lobby several years ago. Originally, it as meant for my kitchen, but I decided my kitchen is too small for too much chachki. But they are just a fun addition to the living room.

The next attempt is the right size, but needs to be firmer. This is leftover fabric from the motorcycle quilt I made Honey Do a couple o years ago.

Gingerbread Village from Days filled with Joy

I finished one of my monthly goals. I am very pleased with the outcome.

Another goal, the PLQS BOM #5 from May.
I can't say I love this block. I like the block and my piecing is getting so much better. It's the ombre color I'm not crazy about. That center just turned out too light. It's a mystery quilt along, so I don't see colors until they arrive. The quilt is supposed to be jewel toned, but I think the mark as missed on this one.

Weatherwise, it's been all over the place.

Most of the week has been gorgeous, even though there were a few days of 90s and lots of humidity.

Then Cristobel came whipping through. It as a pretty intense storm and fortunately we didn't suffer any power outage.

The storm passed early enough that we could still get in our daily walk.

We were blessed with a double rainbow.

The colors were amazing !!!

And the icing on the cake . . . 

cushy mail from some very good friends who know me very well :)

Hope you all have a good, productive week.
Stay safe and healthy.

Thanks for stopping by.

Don't worry about anything; 
instead, pray about everything.
Tell God what you need, thank him for all he has  done.
Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. He will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

I like your little chef pillows! They don't seem all that small to me, but Honey Do is a pretty big fella compared to us. I really look forward to seeing the new furniture this fall. You did a lot of wonderful things. I agree that block isn't jewel tone. Even if the colors were distributed differently, the color doesn't sparkle for me. Love the penguins. Someone must love you a lot!
