I finished Stephanie's Wringer Washer, finally! If you remember, I was making it out of one of my favorite lines, Blueberry Crumbcake by Blackbird Designs for Moda. I enjoyed every aspect of working with this fabric!
Our weather has been a bit on the cool and wet side, lately, so forgive the absence of sunshine! This pattern was fun and easy to make! Since the pattern is called Wringer Washer, I thought why not quilt it with Bubbles, and I did! I used a pantograph from Patricia Ritter called Double Bubble. My mother actually had a wringer washer when I was a teenager. She eventually got a top loader but kept on using the wringer washer until if finally gave out because she thought it cleaned laundry so much better!
You might be able to get a better look at the quilting by clicking on the photo. I used a So Fine thread on top and a magnetic bobbin from Fil-Tec on the bottom - they're the best - perfect tension every time!
For the backing I found this coordinating fabric from Benartex called Normandy Court by Michele D'Amore.
What else have I been doing, you ask? I decided to try my hand at homemade cinnamon rolls. I found this recipe from Jenny at the Picky Palate. It worked perfectly, too! It even has cream cheese frosting - Mr. Squash's favorite. I have a feeling this will become a staple at the Squash House
along with more exercise!
My front window box is filling in nicely. This year I went with mostly foliage aside from the two fuchsias on either end. This area is on the north side of the house and doesn't get much sunshine. I really like the way it's beginning to look!
With any luck, we'll be fly fishing for the first time this season as you read this! Hopefully I'll have a report on that in a day or two!
