How is it possible that we're coming
to the end of summer?
This was a big summer for me. One of the reasons you haven't heard much from us on our blog!
Last week, I took my girl off to college.
You know. The one that wasn't supposed to grow up but did anyway? For rude.
I spent the summer making quilty things for her dorm room.
(Spent some fun screen printing, creative days with Amanda Herring, The Quilted Fish!)
And made quilty things for my girlie's friends too!
In essence. I've spent my summer quilting!
Pretty perfect, huh? And there may be a few
tears mixed in with some of those stitches, but I'll tell you this much. Thank goodness for a hobby that doesn't let you wallow. Too darned busy for that!
I loved that I was able to send my daughter and her friends off with special hugs from Mama Hawk.
SO. As a final salute to summer, let's knock it out with a big BANG shall we?
We want to know what YOU have been up to all summer!
Have you been quilting? Vacationing? Both?

I have a candy dish FILLED with
