wedding, reunions, and anniversaries . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

I said May's a wrap in my last post . . . but I forgot to take into account our day on the lake with our favorite local grands!
Before we headed out, we stopped to put gas in the boat.  We were docked behind a sweet cabin cruiser that was sweetly named!
So we celebrated Memorial Day in the water.  It was still a little cool, but all the girls wanted to swim and splash, so we did.  Purple lips and all! Seriously, once I got in, I knew I had to stay in, or I'd never take the plunge ...

Weekly update: wildflowers, golf, and a wedding from With Strings Attached

 


The last week of summer has been sunny, warm, and dry.  

Top center: closeup of goldenrod florets; middle center: liatris with a bumblebee; right center: aster; lower right: another aster.  Lower left:  thistledown! 





Fringed gentian are blooming now.  Look closely at the petals to see the fringes.  What a beautiful color!

The 21st Annual Jack McElmurry Golf Outing was Friday.   We used to have the event in May when it was likely to be chilly. The pandemic pushed the 2020 outing to September.  The change worked well both years and we're going to stick with it. 


We are 'major ...

A quilt to end the summer from The Academic Quilter

 Hi everyone! Well, we made it through the first week of school and here we are, suddenly a few days into September. 2021 is now in its last quarter. Yikes! And right on schedule, we had a huge storm and the temperatures and humidity dropped lower than they have been in ages. It feels great out there today. Plus, I'm happy to report really good compliance on mask-wearing and distancing from my students so far. Hurray!

I have a finished quilt to show today, and it's a quilt from earlier this summer. I saved it just for the ...

& Love, Swoon, Sunshine and other bits of note from Sew Sunshine


One of my nieces got married recently. It was supposed to be in 2020 and the dates got changed a few times but finally in 2021 it happened but not on date planned.  I finally got to see her since attempting to help her with her wedding dress alterations last year. 
I wanted to make something to commemorate the event so I made a wedding ring wall hanging. I love this pattern and to prove it, this is my third one I made using the Liz Harvantine block pattern. HERE

JUNE BRIDE, 2021 from Kwilty Pleasures

Our granddaughter Ashleigh and her boyfriend Billy,
tied the knot after 12 years together.


Phil aka Grandpa, waiting for the fun to begin.



Ashleigh asked her Grandpa to walk her down the isle, with her Dad.


The small wedding chapel was just perfect for the event.


Ashleigh was so beautiful on her special day.

Notice the sunglasses on Billy....

The family ...grows.


Phil, Ashleigh and Me


There was a lovely garden on site,
 but with heat in the 90s they opted just to take pictures outside

Florid Bloom from Becca's Crazy Projects

I just want to say upfront that I really, really, really dislike the new Blogger interface. They made it easier for mobile users, which I support, but the changes pretty much make working with the tool on a desktop a complete pain in the ass. I'm not sure why they didn't stick with what works for desktop users and let the new stuff be used by mobile users. It's like they assumed everyone was using mobile for blogging and they could ignore the world of desktop users. I'm not averse to change, just change that seems ...

Florid Bloom from Becca's Crazy Projects

Part 1

I wanted to try out the Florid Bloom template set and Double Wedding Ring Quilts book from Victoria Findlay Wolfe. I pulled out my stack of 1930s reproduction prints and cut out some pieces.
This is where the Fiskars Rotating Cutting Mat came in handy. I don't use it often but sometimes I find the project that really needs a rotating cutting mat.
See how nice and neat!
I had a pretty good collection of prints but this project will likely get me to end of the 1930s prints.
Here is the first layout I did once ...

Custom Masks from Becca's Crazy Projects

Another quilter asked if I could make a pair of custom masks for a bride and groom. I said yes.

First, I used the machine's built-in fonts to design the embroidery and make it the size I needed. I then learned about poor embroidery alignment on pre-cut fabric and how my embroidery thinks I want one color when I want another. It was a good test.
Then, I got it right on the second time. I even managed to get it similarly lined up on the second mask. 
Different lining for yet another visual indication of who each belongs ...

May 24, 1975 from From the Strawberry Patch...

Forty five years ago we said " I do";  and today, I'm blessed to be dancing with the same partner.

Love - An Experiment in Embroidery from ***Skook's Playground***

I love to make things.  Conceiving of an idea, picking out patterns and fabrics, and putting it all together brings me all kinds of gladness in my heart.  In general when I start a project, I have someone in mind.  That person drives every single choice I make even if the overall vibe is something that pleases me.  There's a delicate balance between making something that will please someone else and making something that will please me.

This is why, for me, gifts are more enjoyable to make than commissions.  Don't get me wrong, the experiences I've ...
