Custom order done and more thunderstorms

Where did this week go?? Someone must have stolen it, as one said....
We got more rain with thunderstorms the past days, which caused severe flooding in an area not far from where we live. The best way to keep dry is to stay inside and keep busy sewing! :) 

The red and white lap quilt (custom order) is done! 

...and the back...

Red and white are also colors I haven't paid much attention to. I have made several items in for this customer and how can I NOT fall in love with red and white?! Striking color combination that can be used all year. This lap quilt turned out so soft and cuddly, it's reversible and it can also be used as a tablecloth. I just love it! 

...and... drum-roll please! Another UFO done! 

An orphan log cabin block turned into a wall hanging.
First I thought of it as a table topper, now I think it looks better as a wall hanging. 
It can be used as both, of course. 

Remember the 36-patch quilt blocks (made from 1.5" squares) I'm working on in between other projects? 

When an item is done, I cut bits and pieces into squares, sizes from 1.5" to 5". I try to keep up with the 1.5" and made 9 blocks this weekend! That gives 56 blocks and 2016 squares sewn together! 

I'm sold out for Norwegian Flag Mug Rugs in my Etsy Shop and I'm currently working on a few. 

Rain, rain and more rain. More rain and thunderstorms.

Cyclone- and rainy season, but THIS almost every day since beginning of January?! I love tropical rain, at least it cools it down a bit.

That red and white quilt is definitely a beauty! I like all two color quilts, but there is something special about red and white.

Whoop-whoop! on the finishes!
Oh, I feel absolutely at home with this heavy weather (as we call it). And yes, not so hot but the humidity is a problem still.
Are you not going crazy from those tine psq squares yet?! I would.
