It's now midsummer & what progress has happened to this point.
The two wells now installed & the roof is on! The trades are now in working on the vent work for the furnace/air conditioning, the electrical is running through the frame work, defining the rooms outline, the plumber has his work running from floor to floor for the sinks, toilets, tubs, & walk in showers. So the outside is looking much the same as last week.
The floor treatments have now be thought out & I'll see the samples in the rooms intended with the natural light on it. Choosing what you think will make sense & a good flow & transition from one area of the house to the other. And as a woman I was changing my mind on the spot! lol
This has been a bit of stress on me & the histamine levels in me are stressed, now having to deal with my ragweed allergy. So...yesterday, I took a day at the cottage to have my own sewing retreat!
What fun I had doing these blocks, the four different designs are just placed in a pleasing eye matter, there's 70 total, so I'm going to make it a lap quilt of 7 across & 10 down. This Midsummer Quilt by Cluck Cluck Sew called "Square & Strip Bed Quilt" is a free pattern & is made from fat 1/4's. It will finish at 56" x 70". The fabric was a joy to view as I cut & brought the fabric back together. To me creating & sewing is my 60 beats a minute, it relaxes & rejuvenates me.
For over 5 years I've looked at the fat 1/4's soft coloured fabric collection pieces by The 3 Sisters called Faded Memories & what was I waiting for? The perfect way to showcase their lovely design & this pattern was it! Bonus, it was free!!! I also had a charm pack from The 3 Sisters, from the Aviary collection & it worked beautifully with it. Sometimes things are just meant to be. :-) It was time, time I needed to do a lot to do about nothing.
Elizabeth thank you for the wonderful Christmas gift of fabric, thank heavens fabric doesn't age like other things do! It's almost immortal. lol
The two sheep, that I recently made have clothing made with the same fabric & I plan on displaying them next to this Midsummer Beauty.
I truly enjoyed the process & even took a break talking to my girlfriend Lynn for over an hour!
Stress levels were lowered on this fun day. From the time I awoke I knew this was going to create a fun day.
Scraps & Playing
The Cement Goose - Lucy...
Lucy will be wearing her new outfit for that occasion.
The tail feathers still need work, they're to be outlined with a black pipe cleaner, to give it body, then stitched onto the back. Thank you Miss Vanna - I mean Rexton, for holding the outfit still whilst it was photographed. I could not have managed with you! lol
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed your visit & your having a great Midsummer.
Have a great weekend & stay safe. So many people are travelling with the summer door closing fast.
Soon it will be every mothers - Most wonderful time of the year! lol
And for those of you that will be walking in wooded areas, remember - Leaves of three, let them be. Berries of white, run in fright. Oh the things I've been introduced to, outside of city life.
