Summer has started and so has time for sewing!
My dear friend H has finished her treatment and needed a new bag
untainted by hospital thoughts.
The outside is her all time favorite from Alexander Henry
and inside is one of my favorites.

Krista, a favorite spunky long arm quilter,
did her thang and spruced up my Granny Square in a Granny Square!

Love it!

When I see people with quilts used as tableclothes,
I always think, "Why don't I do that?"
So, I did!
(I would have waited for a cleared table,
 but then i'd still be waiting!)

Two new "littles" were birthed.
One in green,
a little bit of Irish play.

And one with left overs from a new project.
(Ouch! That is bright! Sorry!)

Some summer adventuring began as we headed
on the three minute ferry
to Guemes Island...
for no other reason than
it was on the map.

Although it looked the same as our side...

we found some love
(see the hearts?!)

and happiness!
(see the smiley face?!)

We are having typical June weather...
teases of warmth and sun...
mixed with lots of gray and raindrops.

How is the weather where you are?
Leave a comment about the weather
and youngest son will pick a winner next Saturday
for ten GREEN fat quarters!


  1. Love your Granny Square quilt. Mmmm, a comment on the weather. Well, wet, wet, wet is about it. The river is rising and there is real concern about flooding. I'm glad I don't live right on the river, might thoughts are with those that do.

  2. That rock with the smiling face is too funny!!! Love it Deb

  3. We are having our usual weather,right? I was in Leavenworth(WA not Kansas) yesterday with DD & the Little Misters & it was sunny & warm! Although if you have allergies beware! So much cottonwood fluff flying it looked like snow!

  4. I am not enjoying 95 degrees in So Cali... Would rather be in Stanwood or Ireland!,,
