In between herding cats and summertime activities, I've actually managed to fit in some sewing time! Some of it I can show you, some of it is Supreme sewing that will be revealed at a later date.
Here is the next block from my Sweet Stitches BOM. It's called Sunny Days. I just love the Sunflower!
Here is what I've had so far. You can see the blocks better if you click on the photo. I can't believe I'm up to date with all of them. This month's block came today and I'll get started on it right away.
The other day Mr. Squash and I drove to a lake up in the mountains that we've been wanting to see. It's called Jubilee Lake. We took the paved road, but it can also be reached by driving up forest service roads from another side of town. Since riding in Mr. Squash's Jeep is tough on my back, we decided to take a picnic and go the easy way. It was somewhat cloudy, but also hazy from forest fires around the state.
We found a nice picnic table and set up lunch, only to be joined by this little family of ducks! They must be really used to people as they got very close to us!
This is just how close they were. The duck in front even reached out and tried to nibble my toe! One of the ducks had either a hurt or a deformed leg, so being the softies we are, we broke up an apple into tiny pieces and fed them all - trying to aim for the hurt duck so she wasn't left out!
I have more sewing helpers than ever before now. Here is Gracie May lending a hand. She just fits on top of my machine! Pretty soon, though, I think she'll weigh more than the machine!
