Summertime and the livin is easy

I love Summer. No special is good. I just recovered my patio furniture. Unfortunately I didn't take a before photo. You'll just have to trust me when I say it was dirty, faded and only the black furniture had matching cushions. Now they all do!  We have two patio areas.  The white furniture is under an awning.  It's lovely in a summer rain storm to sit and listen to the rain on the awning.
I still have some accent pillows in a coordinating stripe to add to the loveseats. So, as much as I would like to sit in that overstuffed chair with the ottoman, with a glass of lemonade on the table next to me and a good book, it's off to the sewing machine I go.  (I also need to plant some flowers for the patio).  Stay tuned...

A Busy Week

What a fun and busy week I had.  I took two needlework from Ann Pettit and one from Merry Cox.  The French Bon-Bon Box by Merry is almost finished and the Good Fortune piece by Ann is only just begun.  Check out their websites for all of their designs...they are both very talented needlework designers.

My daughter was home for her youngest brother's high school graduation.  That's right, my baby has graduated from high school.  Another big change in my life and his too!

Aren't they a handsome bunch!!
