Busy June

linzshwr 001

Summer time is always so busy. Even with days being endless, darkness never falling, there never seems to be enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do. I’ve only been working 2 days a week at the hospital (max, sometimes only 1 day). This past week, I finished Lindsey’s wedding dress again. We added one more tier of fabric to the skirt. It looks really nice, & I will post pictures from the wedding next week. I have another quilt on Lily that I need to finish for a customer. I did some major spring cleaning last week to prep for all the company we were having. Calendar Girls met at our house Thursday. Mary needed a little extra light, & clipped my book light to her glasses like a headlamp!

I taught a class at the quilt shop on Friday evening after working all day. Saturday I had friends Christie & Hope , & another Christie to work on party favors for a surprise shower we had on Sunday, for Lindsey & Kyle. It was “Camping themed”, as they were wanting camping gear for gifts.

They thought they were just coming up for the usual Sunday dinner at the Hardman’s house. They were surprised to find several other friends there. Weather was nice enough that we were able to at least eat out on the deck. We had a Pizza Pasta Salad (Kathy Jolman’s recipe), & a Caprese salad, with garlic bread, veggie chips, & of course the cake.

Inside we did one game, a word scramble, & the kids got to open all of their gifts. Everything Camping related.

You have been busy! I've missed seeing your fantastic and inspiring quilting. :)

That cake is great...where did that camping set come from? I'd love to find one like it!

Socializing is a good time, too; looking forward to the wedding dress ( I made the one my daughter wears in her post pic!)

I suppose you made the tent and sleeping bags on the cake:} What did you make for the shower favors? I didn't recognize the two quilts in you living room, the pansie quilt and the other one to the left of it?

I imagine, living way up in the north, you have to make hay while the sun shines!! Looks like good times on your deck. Makin' memories.
