We are going to see how well we remember our swimming skills this weekend. My kids tell anyone and everyone that “they can swim”, … but they would sink like a rock I’m afraid. Going to practice, practice and practice this weekend until we are sick of chlorine.
I have been doing some sewing and quilting, here and there. I find it harder to set aside time to upload pictures and write out these blog posts. I really want to share as I go along, but a lot of pictures never make it here because I end up finishing my blocks while I procrastinate!
Here you go! Blocks 4 and 5 of the Snapshots Quiltalong are done!
Puppy Love! We are going to look for some blue translucent buttons for his eyes…
Kindred Kitchen! I added a little back stitch embroidery to the front of the apron to make it stand out from the background.
Here they are all together … waiting for their ice cream treat next month!
I also sent off my U of H schoolhouse gift quilt (Arkansas Crossroads) to be quilted by Linh at LiMa Sews. She has turned it around for me so fast, it is already on its way back to me this weekend!
Since I was shipping her a box anyway… I threw in some small quilt tops. This is truly a feeling of accomplishment when a quilt flimsy makes it from the corner of my cutting table to Linh. It is a real milestone and feels GREAT!
From top of the stack to the bottom … Fig Tree Pears window valance for my kitchen, Fig Tree mini sampler made into a baby play blanket (butterflies, flowers, sun), Yellow/Gray Sunshine baby quilt (also a gift that is long overdue) and the Arkansas Crossroads schoolhouse gift quilt.
Again – have a wonderful weekend and a safe one too! I’ll see you again soon with some finished projects!
Welcome back to blogland, Jennifer! I am loving your Snapshots blocks — especially love the scottie dog print on the bow on the doggie’s basket. Can’t wait to see what comes back from your longarm quilter — that’s quite a little pile. You are definitely going to have some show and tell for your readers!
