Just like that....

Hello dear friends!

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, it's a beautiful Sunday morning.

I hope you are enjoying the soon to be summer season. I know we are! The girls are getting bigger & everything is becoming more "go, go, go". "Play dates" have become "hangouts" and just like that, my hubby and I realize how fast time is passing.

On the gardening front....

We've planted simplistically this year. That's the fancy word for "I didn't go crazy with veggies". To be exact, I only got a couple tomatoes, a couple peppers, zucchini, beans and salad. It may sound like a lot but the pics should speak for themselves. The best feeling ~ most were started from seeds!

As for crafting...... Oh how I wish there were more hours in the day. I finally quilted this little triangle top and I can't stop smiling over the way it came out. Let me also mention, how nervous I was sticking it in the washing machine.... A held breath and a delicate hand wash cycle later... I felt it was finally REALLY complete :)  It's almost as if the washing gave it an extra "Umph".

A little note to remember ~ For the double fold binding, the fabric was cut 4.25 inches wide.  It seems to be the perfect width finished!!!

Of course random fabric is getting cut up and I'm playing around with blocks...

Then on a random splurge due to the lovely instagram pics I follow, I've decided to head back to cross stitching for the late summer porch nights! Check it out!

Working on this little picture is such a great feeling! Maybe because it reminds me so much of my girls dressing up as witches for Halloween.

Happy Trails to warmer nights!
