The garden is coming along nicely, we are getting a wonderful soft rain, hope it continues for a while. While the Three Sisters are growing I have been sewing....and drawing....
...my pal Dena is moving with her family to New Mexico soon....sigh...I wanted to make a little something for the Queens.

Queen #1 (my bday twin) likes black and white...with a little color...

...and Queen #2 likes it all....I think this covers it!:)

Took them for a little visit to see my coworkers....I want all that thread!

While Dena and her family are finding a pathway to their new life in the Southwest I needed to finish this month's Pathways theme for the Sketchbook Challenge.

I drew this from a photo Maria took when she and her dad followed a rainbow that came out after a lightening strike burned down a neighbor's barn.

These adorable birdhouses were outside a shop in Yorktown....I think the birds had no problem following this path to a fabulous new home, their only issue was which one to pick! I can't wait for next month's theme!

While visiting the folks for dad's day I finished this mini....it didn't have a home....my sister looked at it lovingly....it now has a home!


(I had two fortunes in my cookie last week:

If you're riding ahead of the herd, look back once in awhile to make sure it's still there.


Impossible is a word only to be found in the dictionary of fools.

Drug Rugs Anyone?:)

Wow...been a long time. I really have been busy...just that it's been all gifts that I couldn't share with you without revealing the gift before it was given! Now I can show a few things...because we did Dad's day at my in-laws last weekend AND because my dad opened his present even though I had printed right on the package to wait until Sunday!!

What do you give your dad for Dad's Day when he really doesn't need anything....how about a Drug Rug?:) Heheheh!:) I'm trying to get my parents to be a bit more green....no more tissues....no more napkins....no more paper towels....sitting under their morning coffee/juice and medications!:)

(Made a bookmark out of a trimming)
Think these will help? Made these Drug (mug) rugs out of some scraps of Byzantium and some Stonehenge for the binding. I put my little label on the narrow side so they can hang them when not in use. I hope to see these in use when next we visit!
For Dad-in-law, who also doesn't need anything, I made this little catch-all bag out of some Mr. Fix-it. I put a loop on it so he could hang it from a button on the dash of his truck and put whatever he wants in it. Actually...it is big enough to hold a water bottle.

This is a little six inch mini I made for a friend.


.....and this is a secret project I finally started and my first paper piecing...I'm HOOKED!!;)

There are still a few things I can't show you....yet!
