Fourth of July Week Photos

It has been a busy week.  Here are some of the highlights….

Henrik pruned our Honeysuckle.

The flower celebrated Independence Day….silently.

Independence Day dinner

and dessert.

I made a Quilt Block Tee as birthday gift for a four year old girl.  Henrik wasn’t sure he wanted to let it go….

Her mama told me that she loves owls.  I am so glad I was drawn to pick this fabric for her.

We experienced a miracle nap yesterday.  Henrik blasted past his previous car nap record of 40 minutes with an amazing 60 minutes.  He completely slept through our trip to the Buckman Farmers Market.  Rob sat in the car with the a/c running in 100 degree heat while I raced through the market.  Henrik’s world came crashing down around him when he woke up and discovered that he had missed the market.  Luckily, I picked up a couple pretzels at Fressen Bakery and that helped soothe the trauma.  There is always next week….

Laura Gunn spoke at Modern Domestic last night and shared her process of turning her amazing paintings into exquisite fabric designs.  Her tote bags feature her beautiful floral prints.  The poppies are my favorite.

She demonstrated a very interesting (and new to me) appliqué technique for applying the flower to the backing.  There is a great summary of the process here.  You can download the free Morning Poppy quilt pattern here.  I am looking forward to trying out the appliqué technique.

We are drowning in summer here.  First spring rain, now summer heat.  The fans are encouraging the warmth to flow through the house.  I yearn for equanimity….
