Frolick in the Sun

Those of us who weren’t afraid to put on a bathing suit enjoyed the waters of Waterford yesterday. Samantha opted to snuggle with her Grandpa Dean, while Jake showed off his slick new swimming techniques to his daddy. Lots of fun in the sun, followed by a festive feast along the shore and a bonfire in the evening. Doesn’t get much better than this!

I spent some of the weekend quilting my first quilt on the new Pfaff Grand Quilter. here’s a sneak peek…

Awesome video

In honor of the anniversary of our country (USA), you might like to visit this video; It’s a marvelous presentation of the “BATTLE HYMN OF THE REPUBLIC.”

“He will thunder from His holy dwelling and roar mightily against His land. He will shout like those who tread the grapes, shout against all who live on earth.” Jeremiah 25:30

A lot accomplished!

I had a productive day today. I spent most of the morning and half the afternoon working on a few things for Brookside Creations. I finished a pretty tan and blue pillow that I had done some cross stitch for. The perfect fabrics all came together a few weekends ago when I was at Country Stitches. So I wrapped up that project and got it entered into my Etsy shop. You can see it here on my website, and if you go there there are more pictures.

I learned how to drive the lawn tractor today… got my first lesson. I figured it would be a good idea to know how to drive it if I ever needed to help out.

Other than that, it’s been a quiet day. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.

Happy 4th of July!

This is E6… Michelle’s Medley. There are 36 pieces in this block, and I’m glad I chose to paper piece it!
I had the day off work yesterday… had to go in for a medical test. It sure would be nice to have some of whatever it is they put in your IV to put you to sleep for ten minutes.
“OK Caron, night night…” ZONK
“Mrs. Mosey, time to go home!” HUH?
I felt relaxed all day… and got some sewing done, which was nice.
I have a four-day weekend coming up starting on Friday. Yippie! Hope everyone has a great 4th of July, wherever you may be!

I really enjoyed sewing these blocks. There’s nothing like a new sewing machine to make you smile! It’s like sewing through butter… just as smooth and quiet as can be! I’m getting used to my new Pfaff Grand Quilter by sewing blocks before I put it in its big Next Generation frame. I’m not a patient person, but I think this time is time well spent.

Row D is now complete, and I’ve started on row E.
