Endless Summer

34
With the heat wave we have been experiencing here in Portland, it makes it seem like forever since we've seen rain... today there are clouds in the sky, and I am thankful! A little rain would be pretty sweet about now too.
Boy, it seems like an endless summer.

With summer comes our busiest time in our screen printing business. I've been doing a lot of design work and not much sewing - but we all need the work to pay the bills -and buy the fabric, so I'm definitely not complaining! I just don't have as much sewing to share.

Doesn't really help that I've been working on a small quilt for a Game of Thrones themed quilt challenge... and I can't really post that just yet. I'm going a little nuts sitting on this one. I think it's turning out fantastic, and I'm dying to post it! Hopefully I can share in the next month or so.

I did get a much better photo of my Green Cross Quilt:
Green Cross Quilt by Gail Weiss - to commemorate the legalization of cannabis in Oregon.
I'm entering it for the PMQG showcase at the Northwest Quilting Expo - I hope it makes the cut! I'm really loving how this quilt turned out... specifically in the small white crosses. My longarm friends will understand:  the channel lock on the longarm was not working in that direction, so those straight lines in the white crosses are all free-hand!! I also hand-quilted everything in the green cross section except the leaf itself.

Now I'm off to do a little more sewing today before the work starts again tomorrow.
How are you spending your Sunday?
