Some of This; Some of That

The giveaway is still on for this book.  Ends Thursday, midnight. Go here to link up.

As for destashing, I made two sample blocks, two RSC challenge blocks and a backing for a quilt (as soon as I finish this post ) I am going to sandwich today. It's my Carolina Christmas top - a Bonnie Hunter mystery a few years back and June's WIPs Be Gone I never got to.  I figure I can do it in July since the one Judy picked for this month I've already finished.
My new YTD total of fabric out is 57.37 yds .

I'm also prepping some hand stitching hexies for when I watch Father Brown tonight. 

Out of my north facing bathroom window, I spotted this beauty in my neighbor's yard.

This is a Cassia Gold Medallion tree.  Isn't it gorgeous!  Here's a close-up.

I hope you get to sew or quilt today.  The weather's back to normal for this time of year. Hope it holds for the 4th.  So I close with an early Happy 4th to you and a belated Happy Canada Day for our friends to the north.  Blessings,

You are doing really well with the fabric out. Thanks for the close-up of that bush. I also liked seeing the cactus. =) Your quilt is really pretty, too.
