Summer Stuff

Topper 1

I finished the topper for my sister’s birthday.  Cleo really likes the black in this.

Hse Fire July 13th

Tragically my neighbours house burned down. Thankfully no one was hurt due to the heroic efforts of our local fire department.

Jake seems to be taking it all in stride this very hectic and HOT summer. The ever changing weather has done me in with migraines but I’ve seen a specialist and hopefully now have them under control.   I’m looking forward to getting some quilting done. Maybe finally starting that Christmas in July project before it is actually Christmas.

Blessings and remember “A hug is a great gift – one size fits all”,

I am so sorry about your neighbours - I can't begin to imagine what they must be going through, but at least there were no fatalaties.

Your quilting looks amazing, I love the quilt, and the quilting just makes it perfect.

I hope your migraines stay away now, they're horrible.
