Rain...and Quilting Stuff too!

I just had to take this picture from my front porch the other night (Wednesday August 6th to be exact). I love rain, and since we rarely get any it seemed like taking a picture of it would prove to me that it really did happen. I was so excited for the rain that I didn't even mind losing power for about an hour...the kids and I sat on the back porch and just watched and enjoyed.
Here is a scrap quilt I made with scraps from the quilt I showed on my last blog post. I'm now busy working on a scrappy back to go with it. This is my first Christmas present's for a family member who has been hinting for a lap quilt...

Oh, and I won a give-away since I posted last...I had no idea how many give-aways there were on the quilting blogs. People do give-aways to celebrate their blogiversary, their 50th post, their 100th post and so on. Anyway, I won this fat-quarter of the Heather Bailey Pop Garden line from the Quilt Taffy blog...the first thing I've ever won!

I'm almost caught up with my Noah's Ark stitcheries. I should get lots of stiching caught up over the next two weeks since I love watching the Olympics; hopefully I'll get a few quilts bound as well. I really like how these fabric borders bring out the colors of the embroidery. I'm using a new Moda line called Portobello Market...and I'm loving it.

And finally, I have quite a few quilts I'm trying to get done to donate to the Humanitarian program--I got this one done the other day, and my oldest daughter is going to tie it for me. I bought this fabric years ago to make a blanket for my oldest son...then it was going to be for my youngest son (who is now 13)...and since I procrastinated so long in making it, it will be off to somewhere in the world, hopefully to give some warmth and comfort to someone in need!
Have a great day!
