Still being Busy!!

We have been enjoying the summer here. The kids just finished up C4 Music Camp at Campbell University and had their concert Friday night. It was fantastic! Alice is busy with softball practice every other day. I am not finding much sewing time, but that is okay. We have been going to the pool and walking still every night. Slowly but surely the weight is coming off, I finally made it to where I was last year at this time, if I can keep dropping 10 pounds every 3 weeks I will be in good shape in no time.

I finished up some special order pillows for The Rusty Bucket. They are both the same just with different color backings.

Here are the backing fabrics.

I also did a couple other pillows. The first one is a Sheep Pillow about 9 1/2” X 11” . I took it in my sons tree. We all have trees in the yard and this is the one he picked out and planted when we moved to our house 4 years ago. I used it for a prop today, the green color is amazing if you click on the picture.

The next one is a little “Summer Greetings” pillow, it measures 5 1/2” X 8”. It looks really bright in the tree, so I included another photo I took inside.

Lastly is another special request for a friend. I love how it turned out.

That is about it so far. I have completed a couple Halloween stitcheries and still stuffing dolls off and on. I hope you guys are finding a little stitching time! Have a great weekend and a great Father’s Day!!!
