Another Thread Journey sighting… and totally unrelated question!

Hello Friends, I hope your summer has gone well for you.  We are already entering the last week of our first month of summer vacation.  I was so happy to see another Thread Journey quilt center completed… this time by Vicki.  If you haven’t known about Thread Journey, you may click here to find out.  Instructions to make the quilt center are posted here.


Please keep sending me pictures of your work, not just Thread Journey.  I love seeing what you are working on – because I am nosy!

Meanwhile, we are enjoying our summer activities – library, museums, and stitching for us among other things. What are some of your favorite things to do in the summer?




Come back tomorrow – I shall share about Miss Baby’s summer “busy work” stitching!!!!  It is soooo adorable.  I am tempted to stitch it along with if I weren’t up to my eyeballs in deadlines.

The dog days of summer…

[Dog Days is the name for the most sultry period of summer, from about July 3 to Aug. 11.]

… makes me long for a bit of refreshing rain:

This was a miniature rose I planted a couple of years ago.  It didn’t make it through the dog days of summer because we were gone for a vacation, and my brother who was supposed to be watering the plant had forgotten to do so.  By the time we returned, the rose was beyond rescue.  But at least I have a picture of it basking in the freshness from a round of gentle summer rain.

For those who are enjoying or not enjoying the dog days of summer, it won’t be long now! :)
