Busy Summer!

I can't believe our summer is over 1/2 gone.   However since we have had 109 and 108 degrees this past week and several more days in a row over 100 degrees, I can say I'm looking forward to cooler weather!

I am working on a wall hanging for my youngest great grandaughter and will have pictures of it when I finish it.  I hope that is sometime soon.  It will have about 30 pictures of her from the time she was born (actually) and up to her 1 yr. old Birthday.  I have enjoyed working on it in the crazy quilt style.  It is pieced in 9 large 14" blocks out of all pastel silky fabrics.   I have encrusted the seams and now will embellish a frame around each silk print of her when it is applied to the wall hanging.   So I have a considerable amount of work to do yet.   But what fun!   Of course then a border and binding it too.  

I have enjoyed playing an organ that I purchased at an estate sale.   I had a similar one for years and it gave up about 3 years ago.   I didn't realize how much I missed just playing it, until I began to see them for sale again.   It is an older one, and not quite as versatile as my older one, but it is still enjoyable. 

Sewing for eBay selling, cooking and cleaning (once in a while, ha!) keeps my life busy.   I am on my medication for Alzheimer's and am told by my family and doctors that they can see a great change for the better since taking it from February until now.   That is comforting.   I don't feel I am lacking in any phase of my daily routines yet.   Praise the Lord!  

Until .................   the next post.
