Summers here!

Ninety degree days and kids in the sprinklers.....













Baseball games and setting up a big pool for the kids. Lot's of wet towels and bathing suits hanging on the line.







My oldest Grandson, Daniel who is eleven has joined the party until the middle of August. Yesterday the kids made clay sculptures and apple stamp paintings and I made this little table topper.....















Barbeque's and picnics and great garage sales! I got a vintage white chenille bedspread for a dollar! It is being cut and sewn and turned into a summery white tablecloth.....
And Summer mail.....A "just because" gift of wonderful 40's pink fabrics and lace from Victoria.










And a pink enchanted package from Sandy....Another ornament for my pink tree!










Happy Summer!

I've been working on a cover for a book for four days. Every time I pick it up, I get scared. And you sewed a table topper while helping your grandsons make sculptures and apple prints. You are amazing. Wish you could show me how to make my book cover. I bet you know all kinds of helpful ways to sew a straight line! Happy Monday, dear.
