You know the drill I’ve been busy, I’m always busy, what’s new?!
We have been digging in the garden, putting in plants only to have the wind destroy half of them 😭

Some of us have already harvested some crops
Before school, after school, all weekend long, the kids have been devouring the wild strawberries
We finally put the laying hens out…& they stayed just like this for twenty minutes, birds were sick of waiting and started to fly over the mass of birds just standing there.
Yesterday was my last day at quilting as summer vacations is starting up, I’ve finished three quilt tops since my last post
I call this my anxiety quilt, I’m happy to have it finished. Amount of anxiety attacks I’ve had since I’ve finished this quilt? 0
On the 25th of this month, our guild will take part in a celebration in our town and we will have some quilts up for sale.
One of the ladies in my quilting group gifted me with a quilting loom, I am excited to try it out this summer and go back to quilting in the fall with a little more skill.
The merino has finally dried out, but will soon enough need to be washed just a bit more, as there’s too much lanolin to run through the drum carder.
What though what has been run through the drum carder has turned into 188 yards of beautiful blue faced leicster
I’ve never before spin yarn so consistently, as much as I want a new sewing machine, I’m secretly hoping that this skein doesn’t sell at the craft fair. The rest yes, but not this one lol.
I have four hats almost ready for the craft fair this coming August, it’s amazing what you can get done in a garage waiting room when your oil change takes slightly longer than expected, not due to the mechanic but sometimes things happen and you just have to roll with the punches.
Graduation season is among us, a few weeks ago my 17 year old handsome nephew graduated in Georgia & this past Saturday my beautiful 17 year old niece graduated as well. We brought noise makers, wore silly hats, & it turned out to be quite the event, lots of fireworks. I’m so proud of both my niece and nephew and to all the seniors who graduated in the class of 2016. I wish you all the success in the world.
Have a great day folks!
