And I'd better get get crackin' too, because our sweet 16-year-old granddaughter is coming next Friday for a nice long visit with us, and I want to spend as much time as I can just being with her!
First of all, I'm wrapping up a few little designs for Jacquelynne Steves' adorable new fabrics from her Cottage Charm line ....
Just a few peeks....
|My mother always taught me to make lots of pockets - in everything!!!!|
|You won't believe how easy this pocket zipper can be!!!!|
|Yep, this fabric line makes me "Imagine" all kinds of wonderful project ideas!|
The completed projects, along with instructions to make your own, will be included in Jacquelynne's new summer e-magazine, The Art of Home, coming out in July, so be sure to sign up to receive it HERE! The magazine is FREE and contains all kinds of wonderful ideas for you to enjoy .... recipes, sewing and craft projects, printables, and much, much more!
Next up, I'm putting the final touches on a pattern that I will be teaching at Runaway Quilters Retreat in September - Amish Beauties!
|Another sneak peek!!!!|
And of course I can't forget - the new July Bertie BOM came in the mail last week!!! Boy-oh-boy, does Bertie play the part of "hayseed" this month, or what? Love her spitting out that watermelon seed! And these red fabrics are so deep and rich - such a joy to play with!
|Google defines "hayseed": A person from the country, especially a simple, unsophisticated one.|
Just sayin' >^.-.^<
I hope to at least get started on that today, but I'll have to see how the day goes :)

I love Karen Schaefer's Calendar Quilts!
I've made a good many of them, but I've been wanting to do the July quilt for quite a while now. This will take care of my NewFO and Let's Book It challenge projects for the month if I can manage to squeeze it in :*) (If you're new to my blog, see my sidebar to learn more about these fun challenges!)
So included in this post is a camera lesson for you - free of charge LOL!!! Today's pretty pictures come to you courtesy of some research I had to do on the web because I was so unhappy with how my camera was taking pictures last night! Yes, it was nighttime, but usually if I get some decent lighting on the subject I can get decent pictures. Last night, everything had a dingy cast to it, no matter how much light I put on it. Then I noticed that the same dingy look was happening this morning in the bright light! This is a fairly new phone too - the camera is supposed to be a really, really good one for a phone camera.
Ever feel like you're getting "pooped" on?
(I followed this truck down the road the other day and
couldn't quit laughing long enough to take a picture LOL!!!!)
See the colorful dots at the bottom of the left picture? That was supposed to tell me that a filter was in place on my camera. What did I know? I thought that was just for me to push if I wanted to split it into 9 different pictures! The picture on the right shows the corrected camera view (notice the dots are now colorless). To fix the problem, I touched the colored dots and got this menu....
Then I chose "None" - and voila!
My pretty unfiltered view was back!!!
So I'm wishing all of you a "Poop Free" week, my friends!!!
Hugs & Blessings!
