For the July Simply Solids Bee, Rachel asked us to paper piece (she's the creator of the Beeful of Paper that I'm also in). This block pieced together very quickly - a welcome change from the intricate paper piecing I've done of late. As much as I love the outcome, it can be tedious. She chose excellent colors, very similar to last month's block - orange, gray, and mint.
In a completely unrelated note, but one that makes me happy, I hung a poster that I've had in my possession for the last few years. It came from my grandparents' house, and now I have it in my dining room overlooking the table. At their house in New Jersey, it was hung over the kitchen table, and I have many fond memories sitting under it with my grandparents, including one summer when I lived with them while interning in New York.
