Although busy, the week has allowed me a bit od time in my sewing space. I always enjoy those quiet times.
As the summer rushes past, there are several bloggy events going on right now. One of them is Hello Sunshine hosted by Gosia. Following the color guidelines, I used mostly shades of orange, but also have the pink, yellow and aqua bits in it as well. I am calling this Hot Summer Days. This little 20" mini was one of the patterns from Corey Yoder's Sweetness - this month's Minis and More quilt choices hosted by Sherri ans Michele.
As well as using lots of orange scraps, I also used a natural linen for the background. Is there anything that says summer like linen - wrinkles and all!!!
Be sure to check out the Hello Sunshine summer quilting and join in on the fun.
On the Minion front......I have completed three more minion beanies that were requested. These are the one eyed version.
This week was loaded with birthdays in our family. A little summer sundress seemed like a great gift. Don't you love gingham for little girls?
The little buttons were picked up on our recent trip to the UK. I thought they were so cute. Sewing them on brought back such fond memories of my visit with my friend to her quilt shop.
I’ll be sharing this for this week’s #Creative Goodness.
Of course the week also brought some fun times with the grandchildren. We had a great "first attempt at sewing" day. This little one loved it and spent about three hours just intensely working on her stitching. I think she has great potential.
Just a fun little picture of the two youngest grandchildren enjoying each other....one more than the other at this stage!!!
