Scene from a couple weeks ago

Though this was taken a week or two ago, it could easily have been taken today. (A drive-by in case you don't notice the right side of the photo.) We had rain last night.  Lots of it.  The thunder would roll through followed by a downpour of rain.  It would not last long.  Then in a little while, the same cycle would repeat.  It did that 4 or 5 times. Water was standing in big puddles.
I finished up another step of the crumb blocks I just have to decide how I want to arrange them.  Not sure if I am going to work on that part today or not.  This is when I wish I had a good design wall.  It would really come in handy about now.

Also, I have been picking up shirts at Good Will.  I get sizes Large on up, and get the ones that are half price.  I have been cutting the buttons off those and cutting them apart.  I want to make another quilt from recycled material.  Not sure why when I have yards and yards of new fabric to work with.  I think it is the idea of recycling something.

A great idea to recycle. The photo of the old building is lovely and your quilt below is gorgeous.

i love that barn, is that a tire hanging in the middle? or a wreathe?
great idea on the shirts and save those buttons, have you seen the price of buttons. my friend said she wanted to replace 5 buttons on a shirt she loves but hates the buttons, i said go to goodwill and buy a cheap shirt and use those buttons.

It's a good idea to get those shirts. Wonder just what this building is? I see the huge puddle there, we have been having lots of rain too.

Love that old barn. Is that a creek next to it or just standing water from your rain showers?
