Sunny Summer Days

My quilting buds and I decided to take a break from quilting and enjoy a sunny summer day in the park.

As you can see, Sadie is considering what food might be near that picnic table off to the right and Norma is guarding her stick.  Me…I am just relaxing in the shade, thinking about what food flavor of ice cream is in the freezer!


Sadie, Cindy and Norma

 We were taking a quilting break because my neighbors, who just happen to be teen-age girls, or TAGs (acronym for teen-age girls) came over to make a table runner for their annual July 4th celebration.  What fun we had!  Fabrics were sorted and debated while listening to the latest top 40 hits.


Cutting was a breeze with the rotary cutter (after discussing safety rules, of course!)  Let’s just say flip flops and rotary cutters were making me a nervous wreck!

The design wall was a hit…lots of mixing, matching and singing to those top 40 hits!  They were in love with the blueberry fabric.


Looking good….sewing took a bit of time.


We had to test the “almost finished” project to make sure it was just the right size!


Good news!  We finished the table runner in the nick of time!  The TAGs and I are working on another project that I hope to show you soon!

Now, where was I before I got distracted by quilting?

    Hi Sandy,
    You and your TAGs did a great job on the table runner for the 4th of July! Did they quilt it as well? I am looking forward to seeing your next project. And breaks are definitely called for – that shade looks mighty inviting. Happy Tuesday! ~smile~ Roseanne

      Hi Roseanne, this is Cindy! Yes, she did quilt the table runner by machine but I didn’t get a picture…we added home made fringe, too! Happy Wednesday!

      It’s really fun, and they are so creative! I get all the high school gossip and the latest scoop on movie stars!
