I know I’ve mentioned this before, but…

I love the time of year when the early

morning sun shines in my sewing room

windows!

When I woke this morning & the sun was already up,

I knew the task I needed to accomplish would be made better

because I’d be greeted by the sun!

I appreciate the extra light,

but for some reason

the sun shining in my sewing room

just

makes

me

happy!

It doesn’t hurt that I’m also using some

brighter than usual for me fabrics too!

I know we’re pretty far from the longest day of the year already

& soon enough the days will be way too short,

but today I’m excited to have spent a couple of hours

sewing in the sunshine!

Here is a sneak peek

at a new design that I’m working on, shhhhhhhh.

What are you doing on this Labor Day 2019?

I hope you’re doing something fun!

Just Keep Sewing…

I finally cut the new Gratitude & Preservation fabrics yesterday.

I cut lots of Mini Dresden petals for my next quilt.

 Betsy is a lot of help.

She keeps the string of petals wrinkle free until I can get to them.

Today I’m trimming and pressing

but I could use some elves to help me out!

Do you know of any?

What have you been doing this Labor Day weekend?

The carnival is in town so we’ve been eating well!

And of course as always, David shot the star out so we have a new addition to our family.

And as always, the prizes are huge!

This guy takes up my entire 4′ drafting table!

Everyone needs a 4′ sea turtle, right?

It won’t be here long.

I mentioned Clare giving maybe giving it to one of her little babysitting friends that’s turning 3 this week and although she already bought her a very cool gift, she’s excited that she’ll be the hit of the party when she shows up with the huge turtle!

She and her big sister will be able to sit on this guy at the same time and still have turtle left over!

[and I’m excited too ;)]

Just keep sewing…
