Summer Is Here!

With all the rain we have had it’s a shock to the system to have 90-100 temps.  Had to use 2 days of vacation since I wasn’t able to get out on my road.


Yeah, that’s my road.  I went back home and spent the day in my sewing room.

But I got plenty accomplished.

Below is one of my Row by Row blocks.  I got it prepped and ready to hand applique.  I take it to work and stitch on it during my lunch break.


This is one of 4 blocks that make up a wallhanging or center piece for a table.  It is done.  Now ready to start block # 3.


These two blocks are prepped and are from Sue Garman’s Autumn Joy pattern.

Also on my list was Miriam’s quilt.  I am proud to announce that the top is completely pieced and has been delivered to the quilters.  Sadly it will be 7 weeks before it will be ready.

I am slightly dragging my feet on the next  Row by Row.  It requires me to use a ruler I had to purchase and have never used before.  I am out of my comfort zone, but I will tackle it this week.  I would like to have my Row by Row completed this weekend so that I can get a couple more blocks done on the  Autumn Joy quilt.   And then there is my lovely A Boy and  A Girl quilt I am still dying to start but am holding off. Need to get these other projects completed first.  I also want to make a quilt for the newest Malone to enter the world sometime in September.  I am told her name will be McKenna Grace. I am planning a Princess Quilt.  So that comes before I start playing with A Boy and A Girl.

Got the yard mowed,  I still need to weed whack.  My least favorite thing to do but it adds the finishing touch and makes the yard look nice.

Came home tonight and my little TV in my sewing room was not working.  It seems Tink and Baby Kitty had a free-for-all while I was at work.  They somehow managed to unhook the coax cable from my TV and the remote was de-programmed.   Being remote-challenged, I called Dish and they hooked me up and all is well.  I will shut the sewing room door tomorrow when I leave for work.  Lesson learned (again).

See ya…



About Sissy Malone

I've been actively sewing since Jr. High School. But specifically drawn to quilting since I was 17/18 years old. My grandmother was a quilter and I became fascinated with the process. I fell in love (awestruck) is a better word viewing applique quilts by Gladys Rashka at the Minnesota State Fair in the 70's. A love affair was born of applique quilts. I still machine piece, but am always drawn to applique. I took classes learning different techniques and also traveled to California and studied a whole week at Asilomar with Elly Sienkiewicz. Quilting is my passion. I am always open to learning a new technique but still rely on handwork. View all posts by Sissy Malone
