AUGUST IS READY:-)

Good evening,

We had a terrible tsunami-like fload storms last week in Budapest turning squares into lakes and streets ro raging rivers. My workplace had been seriously damaged, I was very nervous and shoked for days.  It was relaxing to have this beautiful pattern at home, though all this experience had an effect, it is far not as perfect as I can sew, but well... sewing this was a healing and felt much better and the "scars" are mine, in my heart, on my quilt.  

Just two pictures of many, during the fload: 

After the fload:


And my center block (without ironing):  






Happy sewing!:-) 

Hugs,
