Summer Stuff



So I haven’t posted for a while, I have been busy working, vacation, getting kids off to college and just generally being lazy about posting.  This summer I also had the privilege of working with some young sewers in 4-H.  I took several pictures but some of them have disappeared in to never land, but here are a few of them working hard in my workroom, making pillows and skirts.

4-H girls working on skirts.

They are working hard on their skirts, and I had Hannah helping me out.

4-Her's practicing on industrial sewing machine

While they were waiting on the home machine, I let them practice on the Industrial Straight Stitch machine.

Loved her style with the hat!

That was part of my summer, we also went to Florida for a week with my dad and Zadie, for some relaxing down time.

Our last sunset!

And last but not least, I took my baby to college.  He will hate that I called him my baby, or that I am even putting this in my blog.  But he will probably never see it.  It is a lot quieter around here and less laundry to do and less stuff to pick up, and I don’t wait up til all hours of the morning waiting for him to come home, but I still miss him!

Dorm Room

Took us a 1/3 of the time to move Ian in then it did the girls! He’s a boy!  Oh and the dorm has no AC, so his first purchase at Walmart was a box fan!

Saying Goodbye

Saying good-bye!  No tears, I promised!

So I have also done some work, but will save that post for next time, which will hopefully be soon!  Thanks for stopping by!
