Well, what with it being summer with the kids home, with Wimbledon to watch up through Sunday (yay Federer, but boy did I feel badly for Roddick!), and with a flat tire at the groceries yesterday which totally messed up that day, this finish didn't come as quickly as I would have liked. But here is Fruit of the Spirit finally!
Fruit of the Spirit by Plum Street Samplers
45 ct Vintage Sand Dune
NPI and Threadgatherer silks
I like how it came out! But the 45ct -- well it's fun and doable, but 40ct is still my comfort zone! Especially when it comes to the over one!
In other news, you may have already heard about this contest, but Violarium is having a drawing for this great book.
It's actually rather a coincidence, since I saw this book on someone's blog and thought what a great book it would be to have. And now this contest! So wander on over and enter! Click on Violarium, or here.
There's also a thing going on about what your first quilt was and your latest quilt, but I don't know if I have the strength to figure out what either my first quilt was or my last one! lol! It'll be fun to watch though.
Well, summer days are here, although you wouldn't be able to tell from the weather. The boy child has discovered the beauty of the lake in the early mornings, but tends to stay up all night in order to enjoy it. Not good -- then he sleeps all day! The girl child is happily ensconced with the boy friend and that's about it for her! Has anyone else with high school or college kids noticed that it's really hard to find summer jobs this summer? Ah well. The girl child being in Spain didn't help of course -- a whole month gone with that. But all her friends are in the same predicament.
Enjoy the rest of your week! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog!
