It's our 35th anniversary!

Sometimes it is hard to believe that Kevin and I have been married for 35 years. We have raised 5 children and still love each other. It think that is something to be proud of. Kevin does not like to have his picture taken or posted online, so I will respect his wishes. He had to work today, so no plans. I did send him a Snickers bar in his lunch with a little love note wrapped around it. (grin)  Maybe we will do something this weekend.

I finished the July block for the Aurifil Designer BOM. It is called Colors of Summer by Sarah Fielke. I even figured out how to do a Colonial knot to represent the grains of sand.
I am doing the Temecula summer quilt along. I am using a bundle of 5 fat quarters. This is kind of fun. It will be a small wall hanging when done. I think a new block is posted every Friday through August. I still have to do block 3 because block 4 will be out on Friday.
Please excuse my ironing board cover. I am in dire need of replacing it. LOL

Look Bren, what I found at Walmart. It is a lap desk. I am loving it. I use it when I embroider and when I am quilting on a small wall quilt. It is so nice to use when sitting in my rocker.

Before I forget, this is Thimbleberries Day. I have not done very well with this for the past few months. It seems like there is always something going on at the last of the month. I am still working on Sunflower Glory.
I am making some headway. It will eventually get done. LOL I am thinking about doing a hand applique around the sunflower. I can't remember if I used wonder under or heat 'n' bond lite. If the heat 'n' bond, I will have to machine applique it. That stuff is too tough to hand sew through. Anyway, here is where I am on this project.

I have also been working on my Borders and Promises BOM. Almost caught up with it. Yesterday I worked on my Farmers Wife blocks. I am doing the Barristers Block Sew Along. Randy has given us a break till August, so I figured I'd try to catch up. Why am I always behind? LOL

Isaiah stopped by for a while. I always love to see my kids. Even if it is only for an hour or so. I was able to catch up with him.

Well, that is all for today. Thanks for visiting. Please come again. Have a wonderful evening. I'm praying for rain. We have some in the area, so I hope we get some.

Oh Winona, Happy Anniversary to you and Kevin! And yes, I think it is really awesome that you all have been married for 34 years and are still sweethearts....that is definitely something to be proud of. I wish nothing but happiness and love for you for the next 34 years too! :o)

Wow, you have a lot of projects going on. I so wish I could multi-task, but if I work on more than one thing at a time, I just end up confusing myself. Sometimes I wonder how I ever managed to work at a job outside the home! LOL! I love all of the things you're working on....that sunflower looks really pretty!

Stay cool, and I'll be praying for rain right along with you...we need it, too!

Congrats on the 35 years.

Congratulations on 35 years of togetherness. Quite a wonderful accomplishment in this day and age. I have been saving the summer sew along instructions, but after looking at your, I really think I need to go pull some fabrics and get started. I love your pieces! Happy Anniversary! Nola

Happy Anniversary!!! 35 is monumental!
So happy found a lap desk. Isn't it great!?

Sounds like you all had the same kind of anniversary celebration that we do, Winona! *haha*
I think last year James bought me a bag of Reese's peanut butter cups (my favorite) and I bought him a bag of Hershey miniatures. *grin*
Your beautiful projects put me to shame... I haven't even been in my sewing room in about two weeks! I can't keep the grass mowed fast enough (or the laundry done) but I hope to work on some things next week.
Wish we could quilt together and have a chat over some tea with honey and lemon... *wink*
