Vacation Time . . .

I'm lovin' it!

All day to do what I want to do . . . and I've been doing it. The hours just fly by in amazing creativity. I've worked on many projects . . . completed a few . . . wrote four new patterns . . . started writing four more that are in different stages of production and drooled over many new ideas matched up with yummy fabrics . . . oh! the hours just sped by.

Here is a peek at one of the new projects. I still need to complete the directions on this one and send it off to my tester. Probably need another month or so before it can head off to the quilt shops.

Another view of a work in progress. Yes . . . I have spread my wings! My pattern line will now consist of traditional piecing, embroidery, paper piecing and whatever else I can squeeze in. I wrote two patterns yesterday that have nothing to do with quilting, but use quilting scraps of all kinds.

This pink lily is the third and final new lily that I bought this Spring. By far my least favorite.

I have weeded every inch my huge perennial garden . . . oh, my aching back. The chiropractor has seen me a few times in the past two weeks.

Everyone knows by now that YELLOW is my favorite color! Look at all these beautiful yellows meshed together . . . daisies and lilies everywhere.

The bouquet on my table is a gentle reminder to enjoy every minute - our Summer season is so short . . .

I hope everyone is having a special long weekend . . . stay safe and enjoy the season.

'til next time,
