Summer...

I had 3 weeks with my little man. Well, really 2, Mark had the 1st week while I finished up work. And boy do I miss him!
For someone who's life revolves around tractors these days... He was in awe of all the work that was going on at the neighbors house while he was here.
So in between naps and after he went to bed I was busy in my room just fooling around. 
A couple years ago, I signed up for one of the Kim Deihl "what-not" clubs. I think that's what it was called.
 I made these...




I had so mch fabric left over, I made this.
And it's not small either.
Then I looked at my fabrics I STILL had left over, and it was WAY too much still.
So, I made this.
Which is HUGE. Like 84x95'ish. It was a free pattern by Kim Deihl called Evening Stars. I still need to put all the appliqué around the edges. But the dogs approved as soon as I layed it down. From my stash, I only needed to add a few light/dark backgrounds and the border. Everything else was leftover and I STILL have this much left! All appliqués are ready to be glued / stitched down.

So, in between dog sitting for my daughter (white lab) and tending to my other granddog (black lab) who came back to live with me in California. My summer vacation will not be boring at all. Every time I leave, Roxy (white lab) finds something to chew up. She's only 1 year old and is twice the size of Lolli who is about 10. Oh joy, wish me luck!
