Jobs getting Done

The weather has been terrific. Colder nites but that is ok. Still no frost but it is very close some nites. Got the lawn furniture away and the garage sorted as much as possible. Once the lawnmowers are out of there and stored in the shed at the barn..all will be well.

It was hard to stay focused on some of these chores when so much sewing is waiting for me in my room. Hubby got some more uniforms for work that had to have his name embroidered on them. They are 1/2 done. Fun to work even on that. It has been ages since I have embroidered. A friend just got the Husqvarna Diamond so this weeek I showed her the software I have. There is one newer edition but at least I could give her an idea of what kind of changes ect. you can do to an embroidery design. This week we are going to her dealer so she can learn even more about the newer program. I also have a lot of work ahead of me on my Mariner's Compass. I am over 1/2 done with this quilt. It is the boring borders that I am working on right now.

Here is a picture of a wallhanging one of the gals is finishing up at our sewing group. She just retired so is having a great time finishing up project that she started and had trouble finding time to finish off. I guess we are all in the same boat. We really do need longer days lol. Just love the detail in her tree. I am sure she has the perfect spot for it to hang.

Not sure how it happened but our daughter is 39 today and she was born on Sunday. I am so proud of her. What an amazing woman I have watched grow since that day 39 years ago. Terrific mom, great friend and the best daughter we could ever ask for. Happy Birthday Dear!! Cake is in the oven!!

Enjoy the day!!
