Will came to visit for a few days...he did bring his parents, too!
We spent a lot of time in the pool. I swear he is growing gills!
Well, if he wasn't in the pool, he was with his trains. He calls this one the 'Ella' train because he lets her play with it when they are both here-he always gets the big one. He is older by two weeks. Life has rules.
I finished the quilt for Millie. It is always so good to get a quilt done!
It is going to make her daughter happy to have it closer to done! ( It just needs it's binding now.)
The close meander is perfect for this quilt but it did take a LOT of thread-a bobbin a row!
I didn't let the frame get cold, I loaded the quilt Mom made this winter and started quilting it!
(I am quilting it with a nice open daisy panto; very subtle and demure and did I say open...?)
We are in the rainy season now, and we certainly need it. Today we had several storms that blew through and left us with several inches. Wonderful.
Then we had hail-it is the first we have had since we moved here eight years ago! We were running from window to window to look at it. I wanted to go out but the thunder and lightening were right overhead and since Florida is the lightening capitol of the world, I didn't want to push it!
I have a new sewing project all prepped-new cushions for my old wicker furniture.
I will get the cushions made and a few repairs done to the set and then Bill is going to paint the two chairs and sofa. But more on that later.
In the meantime, I am knitting away....stitch by stitch. The new baby hasn't arrived yet so it is a race once again!
