Summer Days

Summer days seem to busy around here!


I have only been able to finish these much less than perfect mittens. So glad they are done, too hard to be really enjoyable. They fit and will be warm so they will definitely get lots of use. 


I repainted this old book cart with chalk paint


Made two batches of strawberry and one of raspberry jam


Delicious fresh berries from a local you pick farm



Bathed two reluctant but smelly camping dogs


Finished and sandwiched this baby quilt, a bit busy but colourful and fun!


And got all the hexies prepped for rosette 8!

All on top of being diagnosed with walking pneumonia (I am fine now!!), painting the last room in the basement and working.
All the things from that room were stackied in my sewing room, which is almost back to normal now, so I look forward to spending some time in there this week! Might need to hide from some of the heat predicted.

Hope you and I can both enjoy some lazier summer days!
