Memorial Day weekend is in the books, and we had a fabulous time laying low. We saw the littles both Saturday and Sunday, and we enjoyed coffee with Sue’s mom all three days. Early Saturday morning it was nice enough for a little slow walking with a sweet boy leading the way. Addi and I rounded out the pack with the stroller as she was just about ready for a little nap. Here’s proof that we did have sunshine one day at 7:12 a.m. ♥ ♥
Monday morning dawned early with sunshine as well, but the rain returned by noon. Plenty of time for the Memorial Day parade to go off without being hampered by a downpour. We sewed on a little Beothuk, finished up some Bee Hive blocks and did some quilting along with making the first guac of the season. What a fabulous day and we hope yours was just as delightful.
June is Sue’s birthday month, and we try to celebrate each and every day. A strawberry/rhubarb pie from the Elegant Farmer is not to be missed, so we took a little ride to pick one up. It comes in a brown bag in which you bake it in and then you have to wait less than patiently for time to be up. It gets nice and crispy on the top but not burned. Vanilla ice cream melting over a slice is beyond divine as you are sure you are in paradise while eating it. Y.u.m. Whipped cream substitutes in a pinch.
Poor Addison! She has been alive for five months already (today on June 4th) and still finds herself laying on her brother’s quilt when visiting. Actually, not just at our house but also at home and grandma’s house too. We are out to change that situation by starting on the Cinderella quilt for her and grandma. Sue pulled out the perfect shade of blue which we deemed “Cindy blue” along with a passel of yellows.
The giraffe fabric doesn’t really go, but we’re going to add it in for sentimental value and to have a tie into George the giraffe. We decided to use a fabric called “Fog” that I had picked up from Craftsy during a sale last November. It was the end-of-the-bolt five yards that I couldn’t pass up. You never know when it will come in handy, right?!
Our June OMG (one monthly goal) is to quilt and bind our Hidden Star quilt. We join Patty at Elm Street Quilts and her linky party. We picked up the backing for this when visiting my brother and SIL and it’s a beauty if I do say so myself.
