ode to summer

The days go by too quickly...
but I'm always glad to see fall getting a little closer.

McKenna Mae

I started embroidering this baby quilt
when daughter knit and pearl announced it looked
like it might be a boy.
Then she announced it may be a girl.
So I put it away until I knew
which direction to go infor colors.
The closer I got to finishing it
I told myself it could be for used for a boy or girl.
I used an Aunt Martha transfer pattern
with two extra squares to even out the sides and bottom.
I had to write my own pattern to adjust for the center panel.
I machine quilted it.
A cute little bunny watched as I photographed the quilt outdoors.
"...Noah found favor in the
eyes of the LORD."
Genesis 6:8

No pool?
Grandpa's laundry basket is the answer...
It's looking like another corker here today.

Mr. b was clueless when he let us three girls
 tag along for a round of golf with him.
We drove his cart and basically just enjoyed
 the beautiful course and fresh air.
We all agreed that we had enjoyed ourselves.

A break

I will be away from my little sewing sweatshop
 for the coming week...
break from the routine
 is always welcome and necessary.

Fun tote bag...I cut a lot of scraps for this one.
Fun roadside art...we backed up for this shot!

fun zipper pouches.
Have a fun weekend!

August 1 is always license to begin thinking about fall...
A table runner is the perfect small project
to practice free motion quilting.
