Design Wall Monday - July 19, 2021

 Good Morning Quilters!  About a year ago this little boy’s Mom put this short video of her son out on the internet.

He is so cute, and of course the people on the internet have used his cute greetings with pictures of puppies, etc. too.  I am trying to be as cheerful as he is each morning.  It’s a good goal.

This past week I’ve been at the cabin and have no pictures to show you.  I’m making small progress on the redwork quilt’s flowered border, and also am finishing some embroidered squirrels on some dish towels.  Since embroidery can be done while I am in the car, it was all I could do.

Why am I progressing so slowly?  We have had company, and have been showing beautiful Michigan to our friends from Virginia.  We went to the Sleeping Bear Dunes, road on the dunes near Hart with Mac Woods Dune Rides, picked blueberries, and floated on inner tubes  from the Hamlin Lake Dam to Lake Michigan.  Sunday I even rode on a large blowup raft with Penny Lane while we were being pulled behind the speed boat.  Penny thought it was great fun.

I did accomplish one quilty thing though.  I washed the Red Delicious charm quilt.  I soaked it through several rinses with color catchers with it, and saw the color catchers go from dark red, to pink, and then to white. It took several soaks to get the extra dye out, but I expected that with each piece of cloth in the whole quilt being red.

What did you do this past week?  I hope you have a picture to show us.  Thank you all who participate in Design Wall Mondays.  Please join the linky party so we can see your blog.

  2. Judy, there's a glitch -- it says "first Monday in July" and then "the link party has ended." (And I see that the link displayed is for my own first Monday in July post.) Hope you can sort it out!

  4. your entertaining sure sounds fun, and it's been so long since I've considered travel. Still not doing it here in Colorado as the infection rate is way up again. My sister used to live inn AA and I have fond memories of the state from that

  5. Yea! The glitch is fixed. I didn't have much to post this week either. I quickly took a pic of the quilt on the long arm. And, that other picture just happened.... no posing for it. LOL

  11. What a cheery video - hi, good morning! I haven’t been sewing much either, but know that I will get back to it soon. We did the dune ride a few years ago, it was so fun!
