Think Christmas Blog Hop

Today is day one of the Think Christmas Blog Hop, sponsored by Madam Samm and hosted by 
Lesley at The Cuddle Quilter. Click on the picture below to see today`s blocks. They are gorgeous! I am not participating in this Hop, but will have blocks to display at the Dots On Dots Hop (link in my sidebar) starting 10 September.

This weekend I made a tote bag with leftover fabric I had on hand. It`s about 12" x 14" and I made the straps extra long because I like to hang my bags over my shoulder. I lined it with a floral print that matched the bag. The appliques were supposed to be flowers but they look more like starfish! Oh well. The Joshua Tree was a nice place out of the wind to take the picture.

This is a sunset pic my husband took a few weeks ago. We have the prettiest sunsets after a rain.

Very humid today with just a few drops of rain. Our summers are getting hotter and dryer. I hope we have a wet winter. There has been heavy rain and flash floods nearby. The picture below is a storm that drenched the Hualapai Reservation and caused flooding at the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

Wishing you a splendid day,

  1. Hi Cathy,
    I have made a dozen totes in that past like yours there on the tree, and just love them! Very nice work. It has again inspired me! :) I like the applique too~ ♥
