Another Busy Week~~~

While trying to finish up this Sunbonnet Sue block, I was also working on this project.

Max just got home from his first family vacation and is trying to tell you all about it. He's happy with his new sweater, too, since Seattle isn't nearly as warm as Hawaii!


His feet haven't outgrown these.....yet.

Thanks to encouragement from Debra , I've been experimenting a bit with the embroidery features of my sewing machine. That was a fun way to spend a rainy afternoon.


Now though, the sun is out and the garden is calling.....LOUDLY!

PS Thanks again to Brian Walter, Carl's diving friend, we have this Diving Video. I couldn't figure out how to embed it, but it's a fun one to watch.  Enjoy!

Hey Judy! Max's knitted hoodie is gorgous! Hmmm ... given a choice between warm Hawaii and cold Seatle, I know which I'd be choosing! :0) Happy creating!! Bear Hugs! KRIS

Judy, your SBS's are turning out do cute! I can't wait to work on mine! Love the sweater, that photo of you with Max. My fancy sewing machine does some of that too. It's fun to work with, but I haven't used mine much. I'm about ready to get it packed into a box!
