Not much new going on here. The weather in Colorado is more humid than New Mexico so it feel hotter. We are doing lots of camping and exploring on the weekends.

I am spending most weekdays quilting or sewing for DBIL. Just took in a new customer quilt yesterday.  I am also working on upcycling a few thrifted clothes and sewing a few things from scratch.

I have the Stripology ruler and love this pattern.  Other than the 10" square you start with, can anyone help me figure out the other cutting measurements?

I guess you could draw it out.  But I see that you can get an electronic copy of the pattern for $10 from her webiste (GE designs I think).  I think I may do that, that price isn't too bad.  And she gives yardage requirements, always helpful.

I've been doing some sewing, but more than that, I've been working on around the house trying to organize and arrange before winter comes and I'm stuck on just the inside.

Yetta, I googled on it and found this video...I think you can make it from this:

Thanks, Mel and Dee.  I just broke down and ordered the pattern.

I think I will order it as well.  $10 isn't a bad price.

ordered.  and I do LOVE that instant gratification of the pdf patterns.

So glad I'm able to post today.  I had a text from Linda, Sharon's sister, that she is in the ICU at Chandler Regional and they are waiting for her brother to come.  Her cancer is everywhere and involving too much.  They will probably make a decision for Hospice.  Linda asks for prayers as the decision is hers and she says it is so difficult.  I know we all understand that.   She wanted me to let you all know what was going on.

ah, how horribly sad.  Sharon was always such a lovely person to have at Retreat.   Although we did know she had cancer, such news continues to be a kick in the teeth.

Please relay to Sharon and Linda that our prayers and good thoughts are with them; that Linda has the wisdom and strength to make the decisions when appropriate and for Sharon to have a peaceful passing.

Such a shame.
