Happy Friday !
Today we are getting ready for a big Back to School bash here in town. The town has been collecting back to school supplies to hand out to kids.
With the supply list now so large -everyone needs help. We are setting up a spot to hand out supplies and will be volunteering tonight to help.
On the Home Front*
I am working on my block for : Merry & Bright Quilt Block by Pat Sloan
Are you playing along with me. I am using Christmas material that I already had to make my blocks for this challenge. These blocks finish to a 9 inch block and 17 total blocks to make this quilt.
Not wanting to do all 17 blocks * You could make two and turn them into a pillow or 4 for a table runner with some extra fabric . Have fun with this challenge.
Block #1 House Block #1
Block #2 Wreath Block #2
Happy Watermelon Day !!!
Every year the state of Louisiana has a fun Watermelon festival. Usually the last week of July while the crop is at it’s peak. But if you missed it this year I have a fun cozy mystery to wet your appetite for Watermelon – Lisa
Want to find out more or plan a trip for next year ?
But since you missed it here’s a fun cozy mystery to read-
A New Kiki Lowenstein Novella (extra-extra-long short story that’s actually a short book).
Trying to patch up a damaged relationship, Kiki agrees to go on a road trip with her old best friend Mert. The destination promises to be a lot of fun, a Watermelon Festival in Vincennes, Indiana. More importantly, Kiki hopes to mend fences by taking a peek into Mert’s past. The story that follows is ripped from today’s headlines as Kiki gets a firsthand lesson in the burden put on our society by opioid addiction. And it wouldn’t be a Kiki story without a crime, would it? Yup. There’s a crime.
