Cushions and Quilt Top

Here are the cushions I re-covered for Terry.  I really like how they came out and go so well with the chair she re-painted.

This is the finished top of my Snowball and 9-patch quilt.  Now I just have to figure out the backing and binding.  It was a sew a long with Terry.  My blocks are bigger than her's were.  I really like the 2 colors rather than scrappy this time.

10 More Doll Quilts

Here are the 10 doll quilts I made in June for the Giving Doll program. They are 24 inches square. That makes 60 this year.  My personal goal is 10 a month.

This and That

Hubby got all the floor trim and thresholds finished and it looks great.

My bay window in the dining room after I de-cluttered it.

I have been working on yarn projects while watching TV.  I am using up left over yarn.  This is a crocheted scarf in my favorite pattern.  It works up very fast.

This is a knit lacy pattern which takes me longer because I can only work a little at a time with this pattern but I love it.  Also left over yarn.

Trying to use up some of my stash of yarns.  Great gifts or donations for our church bazaar.

Our son laid flooring in our kitchen and dining room a while back.  Today he did the entrance to our home and the hall way in front of our washer and dryer.  He had bought us extra vinyl snap together wood grain tile. We only had 2 full tiles and 2 partial tiles left.  That was cutting it close.  I am in love with the floors.  Hubby is now working on the trim and thresholds to finish the project off.

Before front entrance. He had just started laying the tile here.  So much nicer.

Finished floor.  Just needs the trim.

Floor in front of the washer and dryer before.

Floor after.  Just needs trim and thresholds into the other rooms.  Hubby is working on that now.

Thanks again Eric and Terri.

Flowers as of today.

Flower, Clouds and Crocheting

This is my purple Clematis that grows from the bottom every year.  I think the squirrels and cats damage the upper stems by walking all over them so they just die off.

These are the clouds we saw going to our sons on Sat.  Bad storms that night on the way home.

Trying out new boot cuff patterns.  These are 2 different patterns.  Not sure which one I like the best.

Wishing you all a safe and Happy Memorial Day.  Please take a few minutes and remember all those brave men and women who have died so we can have our freedom.
