The first day of summer and we actually have sunshine and temperatures into the 70s. It is heavenly.
The week was filled with lots of activity with out of town company, not a lot of sewing and not too many pictures.
Joanne (http://joanne-threadhead.blogspot.com/) provided us with a wonderful quilt along earlier this year and had a giveaway for those who sent her a photo of the completed project. Not only did a have fun completing the quilt, but I was her winner of her favorite quilting items. They arrived in the mail this past week and I could not be more pleased with what she chose as her favorite things. Just look at all these goodies.
She included a stack of Apple Core blocks that she cut from her Accuquilt GO. The fabrics are perfect for my décor and although I was a smidge intimidated with all the curves, I thought I would give them a try. They went together so much easier than I thought they would and I am pleased with what will be a table topper. There is no way I would have ever cut these out by hand, but for you with the GO cutter, you should give this die a GO. Thank you, Joanne.
I am participating in the Mug Rug 2 swap and finished my mug rug for my partner. I thought it came out so cute that I made another one for myself.
That was about the extent of my sewing this week other than 18 bean bags that three of the granddaughters and I made this morning. The girls are riding their bikes over each Monday to “hang out” with me during summer vacation. We are really having fun together. Can you imagine that they want to help me clean?????? They love cleaning and helping with the laundry. How do I keep them permanently?????
The other exciting news is that Momma tortoise started digging her nest to deposit her eggs. She is about a month late this year and I think that is due to our wet and cool temperatures. She dug five hours yesterday and another three already today. They do NOTHING fast which is probably why they live to be 125+ years old.
We had a wonderful Father’s Day here as we celebrated all of the great, loving, and dedicated dads in the family. We heated up the pizza oven and everyone had fun making their own pizzas. I don’t have a lot of pictures because the wives were too busy waiting on the guys!!!!
It sounds like it was a pretty boring week around here, but it was truly just go, go, go. I just don’t have pictures to show for it. It is nice to have a semi normal week this week to get caught up with all that did not get done last week while entertaining.
