How could I resist? I have been diligently, for the most part, stitching along on the 888, 2” finished, half square triangles required. I am about 3/4 of the way done with them. And thus far I have only used scraps from my scrap saver system. Makes trimming up all of those scraps worthwhile!
Speaking of the scrap saver system, one of Christi’s quilting friends hands off her scraps to me. She uses fabrics that are usually quite different from what I purchase and add a little interest to my stash.

Robert and Jermaine are getting along famously.
Enjoying a few days of rainfall and cooler weather here. Boy, do our gardens need it.
Isn’t it the truth???
