Completely Dotty

Today has been one of those muggy, warm, uncomfortable summer days and now it is storming. This is my least favorite kind of weather but there is not as much of it here in Michigan as there was in Illinois and other places in the midwest where we lived. At least, it is getting close to September and my favorite season - autumn. With air conditioning, even weather like today is very tolerable as long as you stay inside!

I am still thinking of the wonderful 80th birthday celebration that my family had for me. It was a time to cherish always. Now I must get back into the everyday routine - although I don't really have that much of a routine. I just kind of play it by ear and do what the spirit moves me most of the time. I have some projects to get done before the first guild meeting in September - they are started but more to do on them. Some of the gals are coming over tomorrow afternoon and we will compare what we are doing for this challenge. Each year there is a challenge that you can take part in and those projects are displayed at our annual quilt show.

Here is the challenge wallhanging that I made for the quilt show we had in March this year. The theme was dots. (Click pictures to enlarge)
