Welcome Company Girls! I'm glad you dropped by. Help yourself to some sweet tea and make yourself at home. Please excuse the mess - you can see we are trying to paint the school room/ dining room/ family room and we've been stalled by an injury. Just step around the boxes of books and piles of school supplies - that's what we've been doing!
I hope you can lend us a hand - we're working on binding our first 'real' quilt and we'd love to have you come and sit a while and put in a few stitches with us. Dreamer and I don't care if they are perfect - we've already done some ripping out, but we are learning! In fact, I've found some great tips through Missouri Star Quilt Co.'s YouTube Channel - HERE. I was so thrilled when I learned to make a perfect mitered corner - and it really did turn out perfectly!
We are having a lot of fun getting these finishing details done for Dreamer's grown up room. I am hoping that she will sleep beneath this quilt for many years and enjoy happy memories of making it together.
Oh, the rain has started again and I am hearing lots of thunder too! We've had quite a rainy spring, and it's made baseball season kind of crazy - but thankfully the teams were able to get in a game last night. Storyteller's team played really well, but they lost again. It's hard when there are such long breaks and no practice between games, I think. There is supposed to be a make up game tonight, but we'll just see.
We have a little bit of our summer school work to do this morning, and then we are off to the library and grocery store. The cookie jar has been empty far too long, so we'll just have to remedy that. I haven't done anything 'extra' this week because on Tuesday I awakened to a very painful right elbow. I was doing a bit of painting Monday night and I don't know if I hurt it in some way, but I've been amazed at how little I can accomplish without my right arm. I've done some sorting and organizing of light things, but I have not been able to really use my arm until yesterday when the pain eased quite a bit. Thankfully, hand sewing for short periods of time doesn't hurt!
Thanks for dropping by!
I hope you have a great weekend!
