Inspite of the heat, I found some zinnias at a garden center and brought them home this week....

Then I harvested the blossoms and decorated a window sill....(so the plants could grow roots for a bit, instead of blossoms!)

[Back to these zinnias in a minute....]

Yesterday we held a quilt guild workshop to make children's quilts for charity. It was so nice to be in a spacious air conditioned community room at our local electric co-op!

I finished binding this child's quilt (below) for a girl....maybe at the women's shelter...or a hospital. Mom pieced the 4 patches recently and we had a head start on the project!

After several hours of sewing and fellowship, I brought home some of the extra fabrics to make a couple more quilts to donate. It is nice to sew when it is too hot outside!


Today I have been painting a small, 5X5 of some of those zinnias on the windowsill....the painting is still in progress!

I've missed your beautiful paintings! I just knew when I saw the vases with the zinnias that you would paint them.

Aren't zinnias just the best flowers for a hot summer? I loved them when we lived in CA and had hot summers - they just get mildew on themselves here in the soggy PNW.

How nice that you all could get together and make quilts for others - such a wonderful thing to do.

And love your zinnia painting!
