Whew, I don't know about you, but to me, summer is flying by soooooo fast! We have been busy with baseball tourneys and just plain life in general.  I have been getting a little bit of stitching done.  Embroidery-some kitchen towels for Christmas, a Halloween Pillow-pattern from Crabapple Hill-The Pumpkin, working on Charm School-finishing our first project-Say Please, Disappearing 9 Patch quilt, a stack and wack quilt top made from Reproduction/Patriotic fabrics, and some other old UFO's.  Not to mention I am FINALLY getting a sewing room.  We are removing the bed from our extra bedroom, since we really do not have a lot of overnight company, and I will make that into my Quilting Heaven! I have also been attempting to keep up on our yard work, since I am still not working and both hubby and son have been working a lot of overtime. And yes, the pups are still keeping me busy, but they do not command my immediate attention as they use to, so that has been extra nice for me.  I have also been working on a couple of BOM through my local quilt store-Fabric Garden, Merry, Merry Snowman-Bunny Hill Designs, and Garden Party-Buggy Barn.  As I mentioned earlier, I am also doing a Mystery BOM, it will incorporate different techniques, which is really good for me, since I am not a good piecer.Tonight I have Stable Group, which I really enjoy.  The ladies are very helpful, creative and inspirational! Plus we all go to dinner after, love the fellowship! Hope everyone has a great week-end.  Still trying to figure out the photo thing on here!!
