Summer has finally arrived....!

I do hope you have all been enjoying the summer. Here, it's been a wet summer for us this year. Only since last week have we been having some sunny days. I did go sailing on Saturday. It was such a perfect windy day!

On the quilting front, I finished Pine Grove. It was quite the experience to complete this project on the longarm. I'm glad it's done!

At last, I have a quilt off that long UFO 2007 list. That's the list I had compiled for Stashbuster. Of course, I never reached my goal before the year was up, Queen I became! Oh well.... c'est la vie.

I'm still enjoying some play dates with Penelope! I've been working on some charity quilts that I obtained from the guild. I just finished one that had machine embroidered squares. Hum.... it's not as easy as I would have thought!

With the bedroom renovations mostly completed, Stephen managed to finish the sewing desk he designed for Bernina 180. I do like the way it turned out! It's sweet to have a nice sewing space! Hum.... more drawers to fill! ;o)

Thanks for stopping by! Keep well everyone!

The quilt looks marvelous. I have a fondness for tree blocks and this arrangement is something I would like to try. Good grief, I am not kidding anyone, my want-to-do list far exceeds my have-time-to-do list. Someone asked me once if I didn't get tired of quilting. How could I get tired of quilting when there is always a new pattern, new technique, new something or other that I want to make?

Your sewing table looks great with that nice surface to the left.

Your guy did an awesome job on that sewing desk! KUDOS to him!! I love the legs! Congrats on an UFO finish on the longarm too! I had been wondering what happened to you. Have a great day!!

The Pine Grove quilt looks great. I love the colors. I'd love to ask a million questions on how Penelope performed on the project but I know space is limited.

Your sewing table looks so nice. What a sweet guy to come up with that for you. Looks like there is room for the computer and lots of drawer space. I also like the fact that it has a lot of table space on it.

Have fun quilting.

Great desk, beautiful quilt!

Here's a thought for doing even more with your sewing desk... have handy hubby attach a "drop leaf" to the back side with piano type hinges. When not needed it lays nice and flat down, but when you want extra space for big projects you can move the dest out, pop up the table leaf and double your work space! That's what I have done to live better in my small sewing area and it's great!

Your quilt is BEAUTIFUL!
And I LOVE the sewing cabinet/table you husband made for your 180! Hope you love your 180as much as I love mine! I love mine like I love my 930 and that's saying a lot.
Again beautiful jobs both you and you hubby did on the quilt and sewing table.
