Yes, it's a beautiful day in the neighborhood and it's actually starting to feel like summer...not that I didn't enjoy keeping the windows and doors open with only ceiling fans running and at night throwing a light cotton blanket over me but the family is getting cranky at not being able to enjoy the pool....so, we'll take some warm days for a little while.
I was not working yesterday so I took the opportunity to clean my house and do a little sewing.
My daughter's best friend is getting married in October in Puerto Rico and I'm invited so Jen asked if I'd make her a little quilt. I made the quilt and yesterday made a label for it...
I usually use premade labels but I decided this one needed something special so I designed one myself.
Here's the quilt that I made using the Jamestown blocks that I did monthly from Michelle probably 2 summers ago??????? (sorry for the bad picture, all my quilt holders were out when I wanted to take the picture)
I was so happy with this quilt and it will be hard to part with it but I know Samantha and Jason will appreciate all the work I put into it.
Then last night, exhausted (LOL) from all my hard work, I decided to put my feet up to watch tv and do a little embroidery. I started a new bom called "Twas the Night Before Christmas" with an Aussie designer. I got the first of 7 sections on Monday and put off sitting down with it but I just couldn't help myself yesterday, I had to thread that needle and start stitching....Here's a picture of what I got done last night....I'm using a garnet red variegated so it will have quite a few varieties of red thru it. So far I'm loving how it looks....
I do have some work to do around the house and more laundry today so I am going to have to put this guy aside and get things done around here before I pick it back up again.
Happy Saturday to all.....
