    Good morning everyone.

    It's almost the middle of July and the schools are putting up signs about registration coming up, meeting teachers, etc. Where has the time gone?

    We've been busy building a new deck out back. Everytime dh thinks he is about finished, another idea comes to him. A lot of our early mornings start out with a motorcycle ride down to the beach - often to watch the sunrise. Haven't done much sewing as my sewing room is upstairs and tends to be very warm in the summertime. I did get some plexiglass sheets and make covers for my thimble collection shelves so I can run the a c if I want. It vibrates the wall and the thimbles fall off. Hate to run it though as it makes the electric bill go way up. Sometimes I go up there in the middle of the night when it is cooler. Drug out a bunch of old craft paints, wooden stuff, ceramics,.... Been working on finishing up some painting projects and throwing out things not worth keeping. Have a couple bags of stuff I'm going to see if the art teacher at school wants or else it will go to freecycle or the thrift store.

    What are you working on or doing?

    Shirley in AL.

    Finishing up a quilt top for my nephew... and I have started a project to create replicas of the Rose Windows. I love the look of stained glass and thought I would experiment with a new canvas, some paint and fabric...

    Yesterday my daughter and I went to my LQS and took a class to learn sashiko. I enjoyed the class, the teacher was terrific. Hand sewing, but not like hand quilting- lots of fun. After class we went out to lunch. That is what I did yesterday, today I want to go back to LQS and buy a can of spray basting- I want to try it. Thanks for asking.

    Good morning to you. I'm not doing anything as exciting as taking a ride on the beach. No beach around here. Picking up the grandkids and then coming back home to pack up stuff for our vacation. We go to a lake about 2 hours from here. My daughter and her family go along with the 2 kids and the oldest grandson is going this year. He graduated in June and no more football camp to fill his summer. We take some side trips from there-American side of Niagara Falls, Fort Niagara, Waldamer Park and Presque Isle.All under 2 hours from where we stay.

    So I guess I got off of the subject. I will spending my day packing up food, clothes and scrapbook supplies to take on our vacation. I have to stop at Pat Catan's for some specific colors of cardstock. My friend is coming over this evening for chit chat while my husband golfs. She says she needs adult conversation after watching her two grandkids all week. So those are the plans.

    Have a good day.

    My son helped me make a large ironing board top and now I need to cover it. I'm also busy making a Spring Basket Quilt for my DD. The piecing is done and I am ready to sandwich and quilt it. I am also work on BOM Stitcher's Garden quilt. I love this one. It's fun, really pretty, but time comsuming.

    Wednesday mornings I meet a couple friends to kayak on a small lake near me. We have lunch and go home. Its wonderful to relax and talk without interruptions. Otherwise summer is going by fast(I work at a school). I'm planning vacation, watching GD once a week. I'm going to teach dd how to quilt this summer, too. :)

    Hi! I am going out for training to be an animal educator for our humane society. I will be going into schools and clubs to talk about the shelter and its functions, as well as humane treatment of pets.

    Right now having a cup of java, did some weeding and filled the dishwasher. My day, I hope, will be cleaning my sewing room, if there is any time left I'll clean my guest bedroom.
    It is so beautiful I hate to think of staying inside, but my sis is coming Friday so I know I won't get a thing done, maybe just drink a few slushes. Have a nice day everyone.

    I am going to doc to see if I can get the cast removed from my right hand and hopefully, be able to start piecing/quilting again.

    Just got back from a horticulture trade show late last night. This AM I unloaded the plants we brought home from the truck and the car so they don't "bake", watered them, and now I've got the sprinkler on my garden because we haven't had a drop of rain in weeks - and lots of heat!! Getting ready to take the truck to the shop today to unload the equipment, then come back home and water the remainder of the gardens. Dogs need to be raked and bathed and toe nails trimmed. After that ... time and stamina permitting ... I'll QUILT! Day off? yeah ... right.

    I have been doing the thankless job of raking pine needles.( after doing more weed wacking than one person should ever have to do......) I am convinced a whole new bunch of them fall down at night while I'm sleeping. But, this is all in the name of fire protection and has priority.

    Even so, I have been squeezing in time to work on a baby quilt for my second grandson. He isn't due until October so I haven't felt "pushed" yet!

    I searched for a wallet pattern. Found the dried catnip I was looking for. And bought another purse pattern. I have to catch up on some more things. Then I can get back to my hummingbird applique top.

    Cutting out 9" squares to put tea pots and cups on for small quilt. Pink material came from estate sale napkins, the cups and tea pots from a apron pattern, at where else, the pound store. Just finished up appliquing on the leaves for a tropical wall hanging using materials my daughter sent me from her vacation in the tropics. Staying inside with 102 temps..

    Right now I'm checking out the new items on the QB. Have some housework to do but my arthritis is kicking up this morning, so won't get much of that done. I'm hoping to get some squares cut out so in the near future I can start on my 10 minute block quilt for granddaughter. Cleaned up some messes in my quilting room but lots more needs to be done. Just taking it easy so I don't get so stiff and sore.

    Trying to stay inside as well, it's so hot here in TX. With working a full time job during the week, my weekend is spent finishing up a baby quilt for my nephew's baby girl born this past March. Although, won't have the chance to work on it because hubby is leaving for Europe so we've got tons of honey-do's to do!

    what am I working on?
    I am trying to catch up with the Board!
    I have my granddaughter every day this week, and we have vacation Bible school in the evenings. She wants me to play with her, I have to do final prep's for VBS crafts.
    And print the pictures I've taken.
    Her birthday is coming up in a couple days and I have to make her quilt label and wash and dry it to be sure it doesn't bleed. And wrap her other gift.

    I am hoping GD will take a nap today so I can take a quick one and get some more work done.

    I'm stamping out & cutting out quilt pieces for my upcoming trip. I really shouldn't start on yet another quilt top, but I just can't sit on the train without something to do.

    Working on my son's music/skateboard quilt, working at my job and wishing I was home quilting in my jammies! Tomorrow going to my LQS to sign up for a hand quilting class in August and of course scan what's new and possibly make a purchase.
