I don’t know about you, but the gals who write the blogs that I regularly read start to feel like old friends. When I don’t get to have a glimps into their world I miss them, even though they don’t know me from Adam!! LOL
So just in case you feel the same about me, I thought I better do a check in before things get too busy. The kids are almost out of school, and my sweet hubs, The Brooding Genius, is taking a few weeks off in the end of June, and we have lots of fun stuff planned.
I finally finished the Red and White quilt!!! Now I am just trying to find someone who can machine quilt it for me that doesn’t have a year wait list. Do share if you know anyone. =)
I have drawn on the scallops for a scalloped edge and will bind it in red.
On a rainy day last week, I was poking around in my sewing room and found some iron on July 4th bluework sheets that I bought a LONG time ago when I worked at Quilt N Go.
I ironed those babies on some 6 inch white squares and couldn’t help myself from making a little quilt.
I added prairie points in the border and will quilt it up today. Just in time for the season.
They look pretty patriotic together, don’t they?
Summer is the easiest season for me to decorate for, just add some red flowers and some flags and things are good to go!
I couldn’t get my mantel just right for some reason, the heights are off I think. I tried to go a bit nautical. It is impossible to get a good picture because of the mirrored wall above the mantel. I get so torn about removing it because it does make the room really bright reflecting all the light, but it does kind of look ridiculous at the same time.
That will be a dilemia for another day. With an old house we never run out of projects, but I have to say I am the happiest I have ever been in a house. I feel so lucky to live here, and I won’t mind if we never, ever move. =)
I’m off to do a little weeding and hand stitching! I started a couple little projects by Sue Daley, her apple core and clamshell patterns. They are so fun!!! Perfect for take along projects for camping.
