She has her sewing basket full ...I might have to help her with projects ♥️!!
Made a little quilt for "Lori DeJarnatt" www.Humblequilts.blogspot.com  she was hostess for her annual doll quilt swap and was my partner. 

Also, made a applique needle keeper for her.

Yesterday, we visited a green house ....today we started to brighten up our front porch 

And a few other areas. Love this season !!


Our veranda needs a few more plants...but will work on planting some pots tomorrow. This is a fun spot to relax, stitch or read a good book!
I just took out some sticky buns from the oven for Sundays breakfast ....so tempting not to sneak a taste...do you think Gene would notice if a small piece was missing???
Enjoy the beautiful Spring weather this weekend. Those April showers we had brought us May flowers!

Gave her a sewing basket full of goodies maybe she can sew a little something for her bear.....may she might need a little help!

We planted a Herb garden this spring

 Created a few more small quilts

Early in October we celebrated our 50 year stay at Cedar Shores on Long Lake, Park Rapids, Minnesota. We always a wonderful time!   


This is a baby chicken feeder. I Found it at the "Fleet Farm" in Park Rapids, Minnesota. Had fun creating a pin cushion and supply holder. Sewed a little while we were there :).

Front Porch, Flowers, Quilting and A Place To Call Home!

Image
Warm days, not much lounging on the front porch!   Huge, isn't it?! Pretty pink flowers!
A vignette on our veranda.   A peaceful afternoon on lower patio---waiting for a Hummingbird to fly in for a drink!  Deanna, Kathie, Martha and others quilting at our Church. We quilt every Wednesday from 9 to 12... This antique 1930's quilt is on the frame rack and ready to quilt.  Love creating small quilts for the table frames. Almost finished working on the house block for the frame.
We have been watching a TV show that is on Acorn ( TV.) It takes place in the 1930's-- rural New South Wales in Australia---so well written and the actors are wonderful. It is very fast paced and exciting! Gene likes it too! I'm sure you can rent at a video store or check it out from the Library. If you Google (Trailer A Place To Call Home/ season 1 ) you might get hooked :)
Hope you all are having a great summer!
