Winner #2 is Sherri who said: "We haven't finalized summer plans yet, but hoping for a week in the mountains and a week in Southern California...I love the beach and didn't get there last year...hopefully this summer!" Both those ideas sound like fun! Sherri wins the Ruler Holder!
Now you're probably wondering if we're really moving again - only within the Squash House - thank goodness!! We decided to move the guest room downstairs to the "ensuite" room, which means Mr. Squash will move his office into the current guest room next to my studio. We cleared out the old guest room last night as the painter is working in there today. He should be done with that room today so over the weekend we'll move Mr. Squash in. Never a dull moment around here!
I've been trying to take photos of the painter's progress, but I really can't get the colors to show as true in most of the photos. Below is the chocolate wall in the dining area. We can't believe how great it looks - the wood surrounding it really "pops". The other walls are painted a warm honey color, but in this photo it shows as olive!
And to show you that I've actually done some sewing, here is the finished flimsy for Anne Sutton's Tisket A Tasket. I did it in what I call "pink-work". I have no idea where I got the pink fabric, or whose line it is - something from my stash. I set the blocks in Posies by Sandy Gervais. I bought a fat quarter bundle of it from Anne over at Cottons 'n Wool a while back and found that it coordinated well with the pink fabric. Now to figure out how to quilt it!
