after a week of weird rain we have sun.
it’s hot and humid.
not quite a combination washingtonians are used to.
the rain totally decimated my rose garden.
the roses were so heavy with water that the stems were snapping.
they were hanging off the cane looking like broken finger.
it was sad.
so yesterday at 7am, when it was still cool, i got out and tidied up.
this last week (since our fishing trip) has been full.
i quilted this beauty…
d and chloe painted her room…
here’s the before
and the after
it’s very blue.
her room is officially arranged the way she wants it with all her bits and pieces hung.
she loves it.
and, i’ve got to say, it suits her perfectly.
then i put this bad boy on the frame…
still working on it.
so far there are two and a half days of work into it.
should be able to finish it up today after church.
it’ll be hot sweaty work.
the girls were busy creating this week.
chloe made this bag for her doll.
she also made a hat, a ring and a necklace.
you can’t see it well here (because an arm is in the way…chloe took the pic with my phone)
but she made a little pillow for her doll’s sore ankle.
as well as a painters palate, a necklace and a few other bits and pieces.
grandma genelle has arrived from sydney (yesterday) so now our fun really starts.
we’re going to have a splendid time with her here.
and finally, we went to my friends wedding yesterday.
they had lovely pink champagne cupcakes (which i didn’t eat…but they were still lovely.)
and the food was amazing.
the chef actually went and cooked some salmon for the girls and i that had no butter.
i was such a happy girl!
the brides was beautiful and glowing.
it was a happy ending.
and now i’m going to eat some breakfast and get ready for church.
i’ll post pics later of the quilting with all the details you want.
