August 2nd! Happy Design Wall Monday ladies!! Boy, July whizzed by in a hurry, didn’t it? The doll quilt name I asked for your help with last week shall be named “Little Red”. Thanks for all your suggestions. Gretchen pointed out that it should have a little name because it is such a little quilt, and I agree. I’ll quilt it this week when I am back home with my sewing machine.
When bringing only embroidery quilt UFOs with me to the cabin, I included four dish towels, a UFOs that I started years ago. It is a set of four towels, that had been stamped with an iron on transfer of squirrels. For some reason that I don’t know, I had started on three of them, doing only part of each squirrel. Well, now all three are finished, and I am working on the fourth. They will all be completed soon:
Our daughter, Christa, and her family have been visiting from Texas. Today Christa worked on a crocheted baby afghan that she brought with her. She has a goal of using all of her extra yarn to make baby blankets and other baby things to give away. Like my fabric stash, her yarn stash is bountiful.
She didn’t want her picture taken, so this is just a peek at her over the baby afghan. This baby afghan will have a border of the light lavender all around the outside when it is complete. She says she will be finished with it before she goes home, and will leave it here for a charity gift for someone. She’s so nice.
Penny is dog tired. Our granddog, Tucker, has been visiting for four days and they play hard. They spent a lot of time carrying around a toy together - each holding on to a part of the toy with their mouth. Tucker has gone home now, and Penny Lane is tuckered out!
But it was not all just playing games with Tucker for Penny. Here she is out in the lake with me, enjoying the water. This picture shows why July went by so fast for me. hehehe
