Summer is not over yet ......

We had a pretty rainy beginning of summer, but July and August have been perfect for swimming and enjoying the backyard. The pool has been crystal clear and the water temperature perfect.

I will be leaving Friday to visit family, and, sadly, when I come back swimming season will most likely be over.

We are very excited to meet our granddaughter end of September. Fran is feeling well, maybe a tad exhausted, she has been on many outings with Simon.

And Yes! I do work 6 days a week!

Quilting my life away! My machine was down for almost two weeks. I must have fried the circuit boards, it's not good to quilt 24/7!

Here are some of the quilts I finished for my customers. But, just one more picture of Simon (with Dan).

And, before I forget! Fran and Luke found out that they are indeed expecting a baby girl!

  Love this Pinwheel quilt by Sharon H.!

 Stella S. made this beautiful Jaybird Design Quilt.

A Jacqueline DeJong pattern with her Fabrics for Anthology!

 Another Jacqueline DeJong pattern for Anthology!

Vintage fabrics from Lory's grandma for this beautiful quilt!

 MaryEllen's Hunter Star Red and White Quilt! One of my favorites!

Miriam's Four Patch Posy! Beautiful Colors!

And, of course, there were many, many more! Thanks to all my customers for your orders, and or being so very patient with me!

Michelle and Dan's Wedding

Michelle and Dan were married last weekend! They are two of the nicest people you'll ever meet!

I wish I had more photos, but I was in charge of the Ring Bearer, and he did keep me otherwise occupied.

Shawn and Emily's Wedding at Garfield Park Observatory

 What a beautiful setting for a wedding. The bride and groom looked awesome! So did the bridal party!

John hand made the groom's shoes. Amazing!
