I'm not sure where June went but it was a busy one. I even drove up after work one evening to watch my youngest granddaughter play softball in an 8-under league.
I spent the three day weekends visiting kids and grandkids. The girls and I worked on t-shirts for them to wear using color Sharpie markers and then using rubbing alcohol to get a water-color effect.
Each shirt was an experiment because I was using several tutorials found on Pinterest... but both turned out well, I think.
I found a calla lily blooming in the kids' yard and wanted to take a cool photo to show you all... but guess what I found in the middle of the calla lily???
It was special to see the quilts I made for the girls on their beds... soft and snuggly, keeping my babies warm and cozy at night.
I also had a good time visiting with the kids in Wilmington, taking them the pillows I'd made for them.... which were immediately appropriated by the grandkids to watch TV.
Even Gussie the Sweet and Adorable wanted to get into the picture taking act!
Hated to leave but worked called. However, the Goodyear blimp (in town for the US Open) welcomed me back home.
My last day of work was this past Monday and I've been moving flat out since then. I'm having a bunch o' yard work done (think: "mature" shrubs) as well as doing some painting (front door and deck). There's so much I can't get done when I'm working that I'll be busy this entire month. I'll need a vacation to recover from my vacation!
I hope you all have a safe and happy Independence Day!
