Lotsa Busy----

We are finished with deck paint repairs.  Looks good for now.  Nothing fancy, just clean and stairs replaced, broken boards replaced. a lot  of primer and paint,  siding repaired after hail damage, and, and, and ...

A friend and I are working on ribbons for the Quilt Show in July.  Can's show them yet.

We attended another cowboy western wedding reception, waaaay out in the country, and had a wonderful time, hob-knobbing with the cowboys and rodeo folks.

We lived through the hail storm and have cleaned up the damage and debris. 

I'm working on a Log Cabin (no photo yet).  Currently, it's on my "design floor".

I was invited to lunch and a tour of a famous (this area) old, amazing Abbott home, built in 1923-4 by the "richest man in Nebraska."  Wow - it was built when things were made very well, and meant to last forever!  Had a wonderful day with friend Janet and her family and friends.

Today, Father's Day, I wore my Dad's old denim hat in his honor, and managed some hand sewing, while sitting out on the deck, enjoying this fine day.


I have a busy week ahead - another day making ribbons, a fabric exchange except she says I am not to bring anything to exchange.  Instead I am RECEIVING fabric to take home!  Then Saturday, is our last meeting for the year at Quilt Guild, with last preps. for our Quilt Show in July.  Life is good.

You look very nice in your Dad's hat! : )
I'm interested to see the ribbons you make.

Well, you have been busy! And not with just the mundane, altho I'll bet you would rather have the mundane than the storm repair. In the midst of all the busy-ness, it is good to have a bit of handwork, isn't it. I have 2 bindings to sew down, not my favorite thing to do, but I'm finding that I'm appreciating the quietness and contemplation of the binding handwork. And how cool to be on the receiving end of a fabric 'exchange.' I know you will come up with something gorgeous from those new-to-you pieces.

What a wonderful way to honor your Dad! You look very chic in the hat, too. So glad that your pretty deck is all redone and functional again!
