Wow, I missed blogging last week and I don't even have a good excuse. There's really not much going on just a bunch of "this 'n that."
Recently we visited our friend in northwest New Jersey and on our way I took a photo of the barn quilt that I missed last year!
We spent a day with him at the lake where my grandparents' used to live. It always feels like home when we're there.
My 16-year old Subaru finally konked out at 141,300 miles. I was really hoping it would make it to 150K but here it is being towed away. I donated it to Disabled American Veterans.
I also went through my vintage clothing and donated some to The Shakespeare Theater of NJ. I've really narrowed my collection to keeping only those items belonging to family and friends :)
The rest of my stuff I hope to sell at a vintage clothing auction in the fall. I've been debating about these shoes but I think it's time. The high tops on the left are actually Keds!
Lately I've been on some early morning (5:30 a.m.) walks when the moon is still out. I love that time of day :)
Isn't this animal "toile" the cutest?? I may use it as the backing on one of my UFOs.
And talking about UFOs . . . I haven't been spending much time in my sewing room but managed to put a couple of things up on my wall. I made the decision to use only 4 out of the 5 Philadelphia Pavement blocks that I made years ago. I played around with 2" squares for the sashing but I don't like the way they look! So back to square one. The small pieces on the right are leftover patriotic fabrics / blocks. I still need an inner border and one more corner block but the going is S-L-O-W. . .
I hope you're enjoying your summer!
