Then 35 nature-inspired patterns and 6 frames patterns can be used with bended bias.

When was the last time you made something for yourself?
I am sure so many of you are like me. We make things for everyone but ourselves.
On my personal
"To Do List", I have included a couple things for "me". I am going to make a little demi-tasse pincushion from a broken set that was my triple great aunts..... and a root beer float. Sounds good now, doesn't it?



YOUR QUOTES FOR TODAY:

I have always loved this weather vane....but is it a weather vane?It's on top of one of the neatest homes near where I live. My little sleepy town of Milford, PA becomes alive in the summer time. It is a haven for the city folk to escape the rat race and enjoy all the mountains, water holes and Delaware river has to offer.In September 2007, Budget Travel Magazine named Milford, Pennsylvania, second on its list of "Ten Coolest Small Towns in America".

QUILTY THING I LIKE
I went garage sale-ing with my friend Laura today and she bought this most amazing antique rocker that us short people can touch our toes to the floor kind. I wonder if I can talk her into recovering it with a quilt top.....I'll let ya know if she does it and of course post a pick!
Aren't these the coolest quilty pieces of furniture?




I wonder if this was really intended to be used as a tent??? I think it looks awesome, why not, right?

YOUR COLOR FIX FOR TODAY

Summer is in full force here in PA and I am looking forward to dipping my feet into some of the many watering holes here at the base of our waterfalls. Backpack,lemonade and cookies. That's what makes me happy on a summer day and of course my lil pup trotting along with me. I hope you come back and visit oftern. I love to read and answer comments too:

As always, Linda, a treat for the senses.

The only reason I would live in PA again is to play in the Delaware, I do miss that...
