4th of July weekend

Totally missed posting the July moon on the 1st! As my friend Donna reminds me these daze, I'm not plugged in... and it's true. It's kind of getting better and then, it's not. I miss my Mom. It's a very big hole, Grand Canyon big as I said to another friend. Good to have friends :0) and especially friends and customers that quilt because it's also good to have wonderful quilts to play with! Working on Lori's quilt felt really good and this week I finished quilting another beauty for Judy J. 

Judy is up in the mountains right now and plans to pick up her quilt after the weekend. Good place to be in this heat. Way too hot with triple digits here in the valley. Judy emailed yesterday afternoon they were having mountain thunderstorms and rain. I miss that after leaving the mountains a few years ago. We sure could use some rain down here in the North Valley. 

Which brings this blog post to the July Moon or Thunder Moon. Thunderstorms are frequent during this month. Also known as the Full Buck Moon. 

A cycle of nature however, it's very scarey this year following years of drought combined with dry lightning. It was reported yesterday that with yesterday's thunderstorms, it's so dry right now fires started despite the rain. So not good. 

A pic of this week's quilt that I sent along for Judy to see. Will blog more about Judy's quilt after she sees it in real life after the weekend. The picture of Judy's quilt has been removed for now. She asked that her quilt be kept private until it is shown in upcoming quilt shows. Pics will be posted after Annie's Star Quilt Guild show in November.

I am so grateful to have these two beautiful quilts to work on right now, quilting is definitely good therapy!

Enjoy your 4th of July weekend! Please, take care to be safe.
 Tot Ziens, Jo

  1. Goodness, we have fires already burning in Oregon caused by lightening. It has been very hot, very early and everything is already drying up.
    Take care of yourself, give yourself time to feel your grief.
