Good grief, how did it get to be Monday again? And not only that: this is the boys last week of school. Well, they have to go back next Tuesday for Track and Field Day, but that doesn’t really count. Only a few more days of being 2nd graders. Weird. I’m pretty sure I’m not ready for summer vacation already, but oh well, time and tide wait for no woman, right?
I didn’t manage to take a 26 Things photo yesterday, but I thought of one that I had already taken that I could use for the world Tangle. I posted this on the blog before:
I convinced my lovely assistant to pose for a entry on the 26 Things list, so you get to see Katie twice today:
You could almost hear her thinking “Mom, why are you bugging me? Why do you keep taking my picture? Will you get out of my face already?”
I got the binding done on my red wholecloth today. I couldn’t get a picture of the whole thing in my studio — it’s too dark — I need to take it out in the sun, I think. I finished couching the sparkly stuff (I think Vicki said that what she sent me was from Madeira), but now I’m stuck. And I need to get unstuck really soon. Like tomorrow. This crazy thing has to be in the mail by the end of the week. I want to do some more embellishment, but I don’t know what. I don’t know if I’m trying to hard, or if I just haven’t hit on the right thing yet. It’s hanging on my design wall again, and I’ll keep contemplating it while I work on a quilt for a customer.
Time to take the boys to piano lessons — last lesson for the year!

What a cool piece! Yes, the sparkle thread is from Madiera and it’s well aged! The “tangled” photo is very funny. Good thing puppies are cute – but I guess you could say that about children too! LOL!
Oh my, I’m so behind with my reading. Last time I visited you were leaving, and now you’ve been home for a week! And in that time you’ve made a darling kitty and a couple nifty Jawas – very clever interpretation! – and had two frogs added to your household – one very unusual. What marvelous things you have to photograph – it’s like having my children little again. I still have a couple of red clay “animals” they made at summer day camp one year. They can’t figure out why I keep them. They’ll learn soon enough, when their kids start bring stuff like that home.
I love that heart design – it’s gorgeous!!
