Tired of Thunder!!
This afternoon another big, nasty, window-rattling thunderstorm passed through the St. Louis area. Man, are we ever sick of this rain! I think I heard that we have gotten over 12 inches more rain this year than we usually do. Everything is so soggy, and when the sun does come out, the air becomes steamy. I guess by August we will be wishing it would come back--oh, no, there goes the weather alert again! (I call it "The Squawker". It's a radio tuned into the National Weather Service. I would love to bash it some nights!!) Another line of storms is headed our way tonight.
Meanwhile, another UFO has bitten the dust! If this looks familiar, it's probably because you saw it on Planet Patchwork. It was a Block of the Month series called "Galactic Twinkle". I ran out of twinkle in September of that year! While prowling through my UFOs, I found 8 blocks and the 9th one cut out but not sewn. (The brights are all Fossil Ferns.) Those blocks became this quilt for Project Linus, a quilt that I think a boy would like. There's nothing sissy about it!
