Nevertheless, in between digging and spreading mulch, I managed to sew a couple of seams together on this jacket:
I know that's a crazy print. Don't judge! ;-)
The fabric turned out to be a little sturdier than I expected so sewing it is not the breeze I thought it would be. However, given my questionable taste in fashion, I think it will be snazzy.
I haven't completely abandoned quilting for the summer.
I've pulled out some fabric from my stash and some that Debra sent me to put together some tops for her to quilt for charity quilts. I have a pile of those nine patch blocks to put together. Somehow.
My niece's baby made her appearance last Wednesday and she is a beauty! It's very exciting and quite moving to see such a lovely, happy family just beginning. What a wonderful future in the making. When my daughter was born, E. was 5 years old, running around at my baby shower, "helping" me open my gifts.
How quickly the time flies by.
One last thing: I want to put in a plug for a book I read: Taken for Granted by Lesley Spinelli. If you have a Kindle, it's only $3.99. This is a self-published book, but came highly recommended and with good reason. It's quick read, well-written with interesting characters, believable, well-paced story. No easy ending, either. Very well thought out. I hope this author continues to write. I think she could give Patricia Cornwell a run for her money!
(sorry to be late, yet again, running out of excuses)
