Working up some fairly small things. #a2mqg #a2mqgminiminiswap #mqg

I came home to this pie made by my girl, as discussed. One of the good things about summer is the appearance of more baked goods, and they're not baked by me.

Turns out appliquΓ© pins are pretty great for appliquΓ©. #indigo

@eschwarz expressing the total "oomph" factor of the #peonies.

I made some half-square triangles this weekend. Glad to have @jenib320's book around as a reference! #halfsquaretriangles #patchwork

A second #shirtno1. This is in Alison Glass that was on super $3/yd sale at my LQS. To no one's surprise, the quilting cotton does not drape so well. #100actsofsewing

Friends' patio table top made from collected beer bottle caps. It feels like a quilt, especially how the colors start looping but are improved by needing to make do when they run out.

Baby swan babies. And kinda angry parents. #lakeday

All finished with all the ends woven it. It has quite a wingspan. #moonrakershawl by @mairlynd

Afternoon nature walk. PS - the mosquitoes have arrived.

Shirt No 1 from #100actsofsewing in a nicely drapey, if shiny, fabric I got on a vacation. I will make this pattern again because it will make good summer work shirts. Nice one @sonyaphilip! #shirtno1

Slow, sunny morning. Pulling out the fabric I dyed late last summer to get a bug to actually do something with it. #indigo #naturaldye

Gray morning soft shorts. I made these stripey tiger #citygymshorts for Eva. The back and waistband fabric is a double gauze leftover that seemed just meant for this project. #purlsohobusyhands

A string-ish quilt for a baby. I'm pretty pleased that the top is entirely made of scraps from my overflowing blue scrap box.

Morning scrap piecing.

We quickly tried the rice-and-food-coloring method before eating these. Because dyed egg salad is traditional. #eastereggs

My mother-in-law cooking in her aunt's apron, and my cat who won't leave her alone because she's always slipping him cheese. #apron

Passover cleaning 2017. And my spice cabinet is organized and not sticky from leaky honey caps. #thecupboardwasbare

Eva and I have been on a spring break, looking-at-colleges road trip. It's really good. We went far enough south that it's much more spring-like than home.

Visiting Chicago, and all the lake blues.

Quilting these stars and having a good time with it. #ohiostarquilt #quilting

We have a day full of music, starting with Solo and Ensemble, then quintet, then a big concert. ❀🎼

Morning knitting progress on this #moonrakershawl. So blobby.

Spent some time on duty at the Riverside Arts Center for the #a2mqg quilt show. (With @blotchandthrum) Great group of quilts, guys!
