I Love Thursday #94
This is the 94th post of things we love for the week. We post these loves each Thursday along with LeeAnna on her blog at Not Afraid of Color. Several additional friends also share on a weekly basis – be sure to check them out. You will surely find something to inspire you.
Iceland! I have always wanted to visit Iceland. Did you know you can walk across a bridge in Iceland and step between North America and Europe? This is a picture I borrowed from Katy at Katy Quilts. I honestly didn’t even ask – I was so enthralled with the photo – but it is Katy’s picture. Check out Katy’s website for more photos from their recent trip to Iceland. I so want to go!
A good storm! Sue captured a couple of good photos of storm clouds as they were approaching us from Minnesota and all parts northwest of us. Some were over Lake Michigan rapidly heading toward Michigan. I could watch it rain or snow all day, and the best part about these photos is that we were in the sunshine!
Isn’t that a fun road sign, too, in the bottom photo? That is pretty much depicts exactly how the road goes, too.
Children making quilts! The children, whose ages range from 6 to 13 spent the past four months creating quilts. The quilts join a donation of 100+ quilts from a local church going to the reservation belonging to the Oglala Lakota Nation. The reservation is located in South Dakota. All the quilts were loaded into a boxcar and sent on their way over the 4th of July holiday. Here is a link to the full article entitled Racine Children Make Quilts to Donate which appeared in the Racine Journal Times. These photos are also from the RJT.
It was tough to pick a favorite but I finally chose Jonathan’s quilt. I think the multicolored horse shows much movement. The border fabrics he added really highlight and enhance the horse in the center. All of these children did a fabulous job!
A/C and sleep! I don’t know how I forgot to mention this in last week’s Love edition . . . but the a/c is fixed. I love having the house back to normal, and we both could finally get a good night’s sleep. Woohoo for that . . . plus sewing is happening again. We are counting our blessings that it was out for only a short period of time.
What a funny and fun week it’s been. Dominic was all set to go to the pool one morning. He had his (winter) hat on, jammies and everything. Mom plucked off the hat and said we’re going for a walk with Grandma. Let’s go! It seems she lost the battle since the hat went on the walk, too. Cute family and cute family fun doing the Lambeau Leap at the Racine County Fair. In that photo, you can see Addison’s new trick – clapping those sweet baby hands. I just adore the photo of the two of them standing by their water toy – both so very busy. Addison pulls herself up by her big brother! She doesn’t want to be a baby but she can r.o.c.k. the tutu! Finally, let’s get that tooth through, please. Momma and the whole household would really enjoy it finally poking through. ♥ ♥ ♥
