Summer Time

Oh my gosh, it has been over a week since my last post.  Summer is in full gear around here and we are busy watching the twins play softball, starting the wedding planning, sewing some quilt items for my friend, gardening, swimming and doing some home improvement.

I have been staining the deck and front porch - 3 coats on the deck, 2 on the front porch - using this product

Kaitlyn and Mike went up flying with our friend and she took my camera.  You can see my work, I cropped the pictures quite a bit so very blurry.

Part of our yard:

I finished the quilt for my friend but forgot to take a picture, will get one later.

Now I am making a quilted pillow for The Pillow Talk Swap 5 (found it on Flickr) here are the fabrics I am using but I took out the green, just wasn't working.  I am using a spiderweb pattern.  Pretty cool quilt pattern but I am really happy it is only a 16" block!

Next up some new knit tops for me.


  1. Looks like you have a beautiful home - in the country?

  2. I love summer, and it just flies by too quickly! Looks like you are making the best of it, finding time to do what *needs* to be done along with the fun stuff :-)
