June is a wonderful month

Starting today my husband is taking a week vacation. He doesn't take vacation very often and it will be nice to have him around every day. He is working in the back yard making room for a Tough Shed. It will look kind of like this:

Only a little bigger with French doors. I think it is going to look great.  We have moved all kinds of things to make room for it and it's coming on Monday. 


Class pictures

We have been working on some fun projects and the following will give you a little idea of what we have been up to.....

I love Henny Penny. I think most of us have made this.

I think finishing stitcheries with quilt blocks are just beautiful.

Carol has been busy making doll sized quilts.

A Rebekah L Smith design. I am waiting for my copy of her book to arrive. I thought it would be here today, but NO it has not come.

Susan stitched this and I think it is perfect. The next picture is the inside.

Ah~~~Oscar in intrigued by all that's going on!

Some of us are working on a Block of the Month that Jan Patek and Linda Brannock designed in 1995 called the Collector's Quilt. This is one of the blocks that will be included.

This is block one.

Another block that is part of the quilt. I made this quilt when it first came out and now I'm going to make another one.
