August 2022 is speeding by y’all!!!

Hope your month is going well!

Bonnie Hunter really hit my week perfectly well with this meme this week!!! How about you??? Have you kept busy enough not to worry, fret, or be jealous??

We celebrated Molly’s addition to our home 4 years ago this week!!! 💕

And I finished all the cutting in the sewing room for Sunny Lanes blocks…

I had to use 2 different whites and piece some of the orange as well as add in some darker orange squares to have enough from my stash … but God provided!!!

I got a card from my mom with some welcomed white strips…

Isn’t the card just beautiful 🤩

I made hand quilting progress this week…

This is where I am now!

Hoping to have rolled the quilt before next Sunday’s post!!!

I spoke with my nephew and his bride to be and got their wishes for napkin monograms..

My mom had fashioned 25 from the fabric she bought !!! We need 12 for the wedding party at the couples desire and 12 for them to keep for their own use. I will do something unique for Rick and I with the remaining 1… lol!

So I made my own light board after making a pattern for the monogram…

I used my own drawing skills and several rough drafts before I was happy with what I think the couple will like!

Then I used the flashlight feature on my iPad, a square ruler some blue tape and a napkin fashioned by my mom…

And the final look will be all olive green with the gold for their wedding date!

And for their wedding / engagement gift I plan on us getting them this picnic blanket from their registry!!!

Isn’t that cool to keep in the back of the vehicle for dates at the park or when out for a hike?!!

Meanwhile I machine quilted the center and hand quilted the outer edges of our table runner… now I will spend today tacking down the binding!!! Yippee 🙌

I am linking up to Kathy’s Quilts link up party again this week HERE <<<. She has made it available to all with just a photo now too… NO BLOG NEEDED! Isn’t that nice 🙂

Fresh polish on with some beautiful red daisies in the background… now there are 3 red Gerber daisies too!

Another view of my fresh polish on the other hand…

Over our verbena hanging plant!!!

Belated birthday mail from a friend who is a great gift giver and knows me well!!!

Love this meme I found this week!!!

So that’s it for this weekend folks!!! Thanks for sharing your time with me reading and seeing all I’ve been up to!!! Have a wonderful week ahead!

I would be honored if you left me a comment if you read till the end… I love replying personally and privately to each one!

    Your Sunny Lanes is going to look great with 2 orange fabrics! The embroidery for all those napkins looks overwhelming to me but a little at a time gets a finish. Happy binding!

    What a lovely wedding gift to stitch all the napkins… love the design you created!
    The tablerunner is very pretty too… I like how you combined machine and hand quilting in this!
    Enjoy stitching the binding!

    I like your Sunny Lane fabrics. Now I understand why you were asking about the embroidery. I think what you designed is fantastic. I look forward to seeing your embroidery. This is a great gift. That picnic blanket is great also.
    Enjoy the finishing on your table runner. Have a great week.
