Summer has finally arrived in Minneapolis. Keith and I have been looking at each other all month and saying “can you believe it’s July?”. Coming from the South, the lack of humidity and the lovely summer days have been wonderful but now it’s HOT. Luckily, it’s also almost August so we know the hot weather won’t be here long.
Today we decided to walk across Loring Park and visit the Walker Art Center. We’ve been over to the Sculpture Garden but hadn’t been through the museum. They have a Picasso exhibit there and I have to say he’s not my favorite artist. I prefer paintings by Monet and Van Gogh.
Quilting progress seems slow the last couple days. I continue to work on my Aunt’s top but just a little bit at a time. My QFAH project is coming along. I finished all the large 4 patches and cut my browns yesterday. I’ve sewn the strips for the small 4 patches. Later today I’ll try to iron the strips and get them cut and sewn.
I hadn’t updated my reading list for a while – I’ve been reading a little bit of everything recently. The usual mysteries and some historical fiction are there but I can’t you the last time I read something by Danielle Steel. I brought that book home from Mom’s and it was very light summer reading.
