It's been a busy week in my little corner of WI. There have been so many storms that my plants have more miles on them than my car!! High winds and lots of hail... yup, I put them in the garage til it passes. My neighbor and I joked last evening that it would be foolish to take those hanging thingies off our basket plants. They make for speedy moving to the garage! I'm back to volunteering at the nursing home with the Tuesday bingo games. The church ladies take the summer off. And I spent Monday at Jean's, quilting *VBS* Almost no sewing this week....except for this... EBBY! If you are going to help...pay attention!!
That's better...these are the blocks for my Quilts for Luekemia. Remember when Clare challenged me to make a quilt and donate it? On Wednesday, after a bit of prodding from Clare, I finished up the blocks. This fabric is what I will use for sashing. Then a red border and binding. Hope to get this done today.
The tissue paper playground still rules at our house. This first one is nearly a "goner" now...more holes than paper....I'm standing by with a new one for her pleasure.
And a glimpse into July memories *VBS* Celebrating July birthdays for my Grandpa and my Mom,(she took the picture of my Dad and Grandpa) with a home made strawberry shortcake. Grandpa looked so very much like Burl Ives, I think. Wish I could have gotten to know him and his tall tales.
