…….. and the livin’ is easy as the song says.   Well, sometimes it is easy.   I bet you all have been wondering just where I had gotten myself off to.  I am here and  have been enjoying the summer.   The garden has been keeping me pretty busy.  Our front flower beds are looking very good.  I planted some vinca in pots to add a bit of color in some spots that needed a bit of brightening up.  Our Black-eyed Susan’s are doing very well this year too.  They have made a good comeback after being accidentally mowed down a couple of summer’s ago.   The Montauk Daisies are looking pretty good.  They will be giving us some beautiful flowers as the summer winds itself down.

I have been spending a bit of time in the sewing room too.  We had a very successful Craft Fair on Memorial Day weekend.   Some of the more popular items were:

double wine bottle bag   The double wine bottle carriers.

Burp Cloths and Baby Blankets:

Burp Cloths                                  Falling Charms

Tablerunners and placemats went very quickly

Tablerunner -Bayside Pattern in Red, white and blue   red, white and blue placemats

Adirondack chair Placemats   Wave quilting on placemats

And the Crafter’s Apron and the reversible BBQ Apron were customer favorites too.

Of course, I needed to bring something Yankee-related to work so I made myself a small quilted wall-hanging to make me smile          .NY Yankees

So folks, that’s what I’ve been up to the last few months.  Sorry I’ve been absent here.  I am planning on being busy in the sewing room again within the next few weeks.  I’ve got a couple quilts in the works and some new items I am hoping to add to my repertoire.  I will keep you posted and share pictures.

Be well and enjoy these lazy, hazy crazy days of summer.
