Entering into summer with a clean sewing table!
Next up, a quilt top for little grandmunchkin soon to appear. He's still safe and warm with his mommy and when he is born, he won't have much need of a quilt but a quilt he must have. It is similar to those of his older brothers. The log cabin blocks on the border I made some years ago and they've been sitting waiting for the right quilt to surround. This was it. I'm waiting on John Deere fabric to back it and it's going to the fair too as my quilt entry.
Another nemesis, or rather two. I made two of these shirts in different sizes just to use up the fabric. After sweating and trying and trying to get the plaids to match, which I had matched when I cut it out, I realized the plaid in the fabric is off. First the pattern is a nightmare, and then the fabric. I better get a blue ribbon on this one!
This sweet girl is now 11!
Summer is a great time to make chains of all the wild flowers in the surrounding green spaces and woods. The older is teaching the younger. I loved watching this.
