enjoying summer


My total house count to date is 234.  Only 18 houses this past month… oops…  good thing I was already ahead.  I promise I’m still hanging in there to the finish.



But who can blame me… I have been a little side tracked spending time with these two… and the rest of the family.  Our summer has been pretty full so far.



And I also got a little distracted with a new project.  I saw a log cabin quilt on page 47 of the latest Quilt Sampler magazine (Broken Star Log Cabin) and I was smitten.  Now the house blocks have to share sewing time with my new log cabin blocks.  These will finish at 4 1/2”.



Oh, and I’m not the only one who’s been busy …  I spied these while visiting at my mother-in-law’s home.  This huge vase holds almost 500 yo-yo’s!  They are awesome to look at and my granddaughter calls them flowers.  I just had to share them with you.

Oh, you're spending your summer with a couple of cutie-patooties.

Love your houses - fabulous!

And your log cabin blocks are wonderful.
