Wow! I can’t believe it is suddenly June. Life has been so crazy busy and the first thing I must do is apologize for not getting my monthly patterns out. I hope that project will continue very soon. I won’t go into the details of why that hasn’t happened just know that there hasn’t been even one second available for quilting in the last 3 months. Here is some of what has been worth celebrating…
First of all, I completed my first half marathon!!!! I am so proud of myself!
And, as you can see in the above picture, my lovely daughter graduated high school!
One of my recent projects.
Take a close look in the background and you will see that my Valentine quilt is still hanging. I haven’t gotten around to taking it down and here it is June. This display will stay up on my daughter’s piano until the party is complete this weekend. then I might think about changing things up a bit and can focus on getting her ready for college in the fall.
In all the craziness, we did take a few minutes, on Memorial day to attend the local Botanical Gardens. Everything was lovely!
And, my major project recently was painting and redecorating the guest bathroom…
The main focus was a the mermaid painting that my daughter created for me. This room went from African animals & masks to mermaids and sea creatures. The walls were painted sea mist blue and the door and cabinet a little darker. More pictures will come soon when I have everything all together.
I am definitely feeling the quilting desire. However, tomorrow I start back to work as the Summer School Librarian and will be working all summer. I will get a short 2 weeks off in late July/Early August before the new school year begins. Main quilting goal, unfortunately will not be the row by row patterns but the quilts for my daughter’s dorm.
I hope everyone has a lovely summer of sewing!
