Odds And Ends Wednesday

 Temperature quilt.  This is July.  It really hasn't been that hot.  Only two days above 85 degrees Farenheit.
 The top so far, January through July.  E was holding it backwards.  I didn't notice until editing.
 I mentioned we were in Galena, IL last week.  There are a handful of antique stores there.  In one I found some hexies that I had to rescue.  They are strung together on thread with a rusted needle, complete with cardboard template.  It was with the instruction sheet. 
 The instructions are not for English Paper Piecing, but that is probably what I will do to complete the top.  It is obvious that the yellow is for the center of the flowers.  I will have to count the other patches to see what is supposed to be petals vs. background.  Actually, now that I think about it, probably the patterned fabric is the flower.
There were also two orphan Dresden Plate blocks that I didn't rescue.  And a ton of quilts and one beautiful top.  None seemed outrageously priced, but I certainly couldn't buy them all, and at this point they would just live in the closet, so I thought it best not to buy any.
And a bit of happy mail for me.  Haven't even cracked it open yet.  Can't wait to read it.  Don't know if I'll ever make a house, but they are so stinkin' cute.

The temp quilt is coming along nicely. As you finish up the year it should have a nice balance of warm and cool.
