Summer in Seattle

Long time no post! Summer came slow for Seattle this year, but we managed to get a couple weeks of 80 degree weather. My husband and I spent these last few weeks moving our bedroom upstairs and my sewing room downstairs, putting together new Ikea furniture (you know how long that can take), along with a late spring cleaning to make room for the baby! It’s been very busy, and because of the move I’ve been without a crafting room. I had a little crafting setup in my dining room, but I didn’t get around to sewing with all the moving around. Things are slowly coming together though! My next project is to get my new crafting space organized – I don’t know about you, but I can’t craft when things are disheveled and out of place. An organized crafting area gets my creative juices flowing. 🙂

With all this recent hustle and bustle we decided to relax this weekend. Lucky for us, my step-dad happens to own a beautiful boat that we spent the whole day on in Lake Washington with the dogs. The photo above is of my parent’s dog, Keili (pronounced Key-Lie). Keili is modeling a quilt I made for my step-dad. I appliqued “Refugio” on the quilt, which means refuge. Keili is Paige’s arch enemy, though they got along very well on the boat!

And of course, here are my furry babies, Paige and Bodie. Bodie is terrified of the water, hence the life jacket.

Anyway, thanks for stopping by. I hope you all had a great weekend, and found time to relax. Sorry for not posting lately – it’s been a busy last few weeks!

Happy Quilting!

    I remember my summer visit to my aunt/uncle's house in Port Orchard…they said it was a warm summer, I had to go out and get a sweatshirt because it barely hit 70 degrees.

    Wow, I would have shared some of our hot summer heat with you! I'm in the St.Louis-IL metro area and we were steamin this summer. We are praying for rain now, none in weeks! I'm tired of watering flowers every day! But, I know there are others out there facing more serious issues. Prayers for all those in need.
