Day 136 of 2021

Before.
This room needs to have some special issues addressed. 
It also just needs to be freshened up. 
I am planning something lighter and brighter. 
I'll keep the progress pictures coming. 
Yes, I have a Christmas tree painting on display in May, actually all year long. 
Yes, there is a picture frame with no picture in it. 
Yes, you see bolts of fabric.
And yes, there is a bag of supplies from the hardware store on the table
 so we can get this party started.

Day 135 of 2021

I'm sitting down with my second Mother's Day book tonight. 
A long time ago I used to make some of my own clothing. 
I have been itching to do more. 
I am hoping to learn a little more and get inspired.

Day 132 of 2021

More shirts, but I am happy to report that these six are the last of the shirts. 
My goal was to finish them by the end of last week, 
but today's just as good a day to finish something. 
Now I can move on to something else. 
I do have some set aside for a red, white and blue flag quilt 
that appears in the June 2021 (issue 170) American Patchwork & Quilting magazine. 
I think some of the greens may end up as trees in a wintery/Christmasy quilt.

Day 131 of 2021

Fireball got me two books for Mother's Day. 
I read this one tonight. 
It was great. 
Do you know what book this is? What is it?

Day 130 of 2021

Happy Mail.
I have just participated in a fabric swap through Instagram for the first time.
My package arrived today and I could not be more excited.
