A finish...

I traveled to Philly today to spend the day with my fabulous daughter.   I arrived early and she was not back from the store so I enjoyed my coffee on her deck while I waited.  She has the sweetest set up for the city.   End of a row, paved patio between her house and her detached garage.

I enjoyed my view and my coffee until she got home.  

Creativity is seldom tidy!

Then we got down to business.  She and I spent the day crafting.   She is making a quilt for a co-worker who is leaving to go to law school.                                   I got some pointers from my Thursday night friends on finishing my pin cushion.  They suggested circles of batting in graduated sizes.

 It worked.    I still have a couple of little hiccups to smooth so I need to get out my Purple Thang and ease everything smooth but am happy overall.

 And then there is little Will!  Twelve weeks yesterday.   He is growing like a weed and seems to be a little bit of a ham for the camera.  Lucky me, I get to see him again next weekend.

And another view I never get tired of... it's no wonder the color of pool water is my favorite color

  That's all I've got........stitch on my friends!
