Happy Monday

Weird Monday person here ... I really do like Mondays. I always have.  Time for a new week!

My 2016 Bonnie Hunter quilt is all pieced and loaded up just waiting for a little Handiquilter magic.  Do you see a problem? Yes it is too big for my frame.  When we moved here a year ago, I decided (for a lot reasons) to have my Handiquilter set up at 8'.  I thought I was done with large quilts.  I was done right up until I made a large quilt.  I have a plan ... this will work ... I think ... I hope.

My garden is flourishing.  We get a fair amount of afternoon rain (and a great sprinkler system). I love having morning coffee with a view!

I bought a new iron ... a big boy.  Hopefully he will behave and NOT start spitting on my fabric.  That little guy is a champion iron. Never spits, never turns off and cost $9.00.  But, it's a really light weight iron and I do like to press quilt tops with a heavier iron. 

PS ... I LOVE shopping on Amazon.

AND ... my Quilts of Valor donation is DONE.  It will be attending my guild meeting next week.

Also today I made a couple of August block parts. I prepped my July applique blocks and did some housework.

It's been a great Monday!

What kind is your small iron? I could use a lightweight one.
