Hi there! I have a few finishes and some starts,
thought I'd like to share them.
Shabby Chic is done, and I'm so happy with the results ~
sewing the binding, see my full cup of chia tea?
the tea is about gone, and I've cut the binding- that's the scrap in the side chair ~
It's finished, and so is the tea... here's the label ~

Beth's birthday came, and we delivered last year's twister "Cherries" table runner. I made this last year, and it took me for-e-v-e-r to quilt it. . . I K.N.O.W., what a friend I am!But she loved it, and laughed when I showed her the one I started for her for next year, lol!
~A thank you goes to my friend Gail of The Cozy Quilter,
who shared how to do this without purchasing a ruler~
(see my post here)
Beth also had me quilt her newest grandson's quilt, she had it pinned, and waiting for me. I brought it back to her to bind ~

On the 4th of July, we were together with Beth and Jerry and I played with her red, white and blue fabrics and made some crazy patch blocks into a table runner for her entryway. She immediately put it on the table and added a sweet blue teapot, and a red, white and pink one, sorry, I forgot to get a picture of it on the table...her runner is pieced but not quilted yet.
Here are my squares... yep, not finished...
I and 2000 others have been stung by a bee. Well, not really, but Lori Holt of A Bee in my Bonnet started a Granny Squares Quilt Along, and I did, yes I DID jump in...tell me if you did too. Here are my first three squares, and another is laying by the table for tomorrow. (Because, I'm typing tonight :-} lol )
Now, lest you think I'm being lazy, we've also been swimming, sewing swimsuits (well, Beth has, mine's only cut out), going away overnight weekly this summer, cooking, teaching a bit of quilty things, went to a free concert under the stars for a group called California Guitar Trio, refinishing a few pieces of furniture, you know, stuff like that. I love July!
I'll leave you with a video, if I can.
