Summer has arrived here in central PA. Crazy to think that just a few weeks ago we had snow, and this week I had to turn on the A/C!
I have been working on some fun projects this past week!
Firstly, my dear husband built me 2 more garden beds and I got all my flowers, veggies, and herbs planted. I always like to record what I plant ( and where) in my garden journal so I can decide whether plants do well in a certain spot ( growing a garden in a yard filled with shade is not for sissies~not to mention the bunnies and groundhog and squirrels and chipmunks that seem to think it’s their personal buffet, but I like to think we can peacefully co-exist 😉 ).
I finished my latest embroidery by the Love & Hugs from Australia Facebook group: Time to move onto the next one! ( these are all free by the way, in case you want to make your own!)
I continue working on my Norah quilt ( free tute by Sunny day supply co). This is a GIANT Log Cabin block. I am not done yet ( having way too much fun just picking my colors and fabrics and busting through my scrap bucket!), but I just had to get out and take some pics of it in the sunroom and in the garden! I even had hubby hold it up in front of the shed and that gave me the brilliant idea that we could hang a clothesline at the front of it so I can take more photos of quilts in the future ( because who wouldn’t want to use that beautiful shed as a backdrop, right??)
And finally, I have finished the top of my quilt for the sewalong I am hosting in our private facebook group:
I just love how it turned out! And I have decided to handquilt it with a BIG stitch using my favorite Sulky thread.
I find I am really loving the slow process of handstitching my projects…it’s a perfect time time to reflect and think.
Well, that is all for this week. Until next time, please stay safe, and
