My idea of a good time


Today was a beautiful day. And, knowing it would be one of the last for awhile, I wanted to spend it outside. But I also really wanted to sew--as always. So I did what my grandmother used to do, and set up the sewing machine on the patio.



I invited my lovely neighbor, Shannon, who dropped everything and came right over. Here she is, quilting a baby quilt. Before this photo, she had layed it out on the concrete to pin it.



Even my dogs, Ruby and Malti, joined in the fun!

Happy Labor Day!

How wonderful! HOw long did it take you to take all the bits and pieces outside and bring them in again. It would have taken me half a day LOL!

Major envy here: nice dogs, nice patio, no flies as one can see and a nice, quilting neighbor!
(I do have nice neighbors, but none quilt). Good for you!

I have often thought of taking my machine outside but haven't done it. It is still too hot here for that but would be fun in a bit cooler weather.
