This is from my good friend Maria! We have a thing about pelicans, and I am in love with this one. Thank you so much, Maria!! The detail is amazing. There are tiny little ducks on the water, and the pelican has a cool eye.
Last week, I received this from my partner Judy, in the It’s a Sister Thing Swap. We could make anything at all for our partner, and she crafted a CLOCK!! How cool is that? Thanks Judy. I’m still deciding where to hang it. The sewing room seems obvious, but the color will clash terribly with my walls.
And here’s what I made for my partner.
I liked it so much, I made two at the same time, so I have one for myself, too. It’s an Eleanor Burns pattern from “Quilts from El’s Kitchen”. Those little aprons are so adorable.
I mentioned that I was planning to make a travel journal for my trip to Alaska and here it is.
Now all I have to do is pack and go!
Chef Robert Irvine from Restaurant Impossible was in town over the weekend! We’re fans of the show, so we spent time outside the restaurant, and we did get pictures of Robert. We couldn’t get reservations for the reveal, but we’ll try to go in the near future. Here is is getting ready to lead the owners in to see their ‘new’ restaurant.
Let’s see, what else? Some kayaking pictures? The place we went this past weekend was nearly impossible to get to because of the horrible roads.
Then when we arrived at the boat launch, our car was attacked by ginormous bugs. I don’t have any pictures, because I was freaking out and jumping around trying to get away from them. Once we got in the water we were fine. I think the bugs were black horse flies. I never want to see them again!
I think that gets me caught up for awhile. No hexies this week, and Fiona Pfaff is going to the spa tomorrow, so I need to get her packed up tonight.
Adios for awhile…….Sunny
