In some other sewing, I made a pillow and table runner for a friend who is helping her mom move into a condo.
I made my first visit to IKEA recently. We don’t have one nearby. The closest ones are near Pittsburgh and Cincinnati. So during a recent trip, I stopped in. I was a bit overwhelmed. The one item that I really wanted was their cheap frames for my first photo grouping. But they ran out of the 8 x 10s!!! I’m also not sure I like the maze that you have to go through. However, there was a lot to look at. I bought two of the bags, just because…..and I ended using one to ship some bulky items. It worked very well!
This has been one of the most transient-feeling summers I have experienced in a long time. Not for me, but for my kids. With two kids moving home for the summer and then one moving out for a summer job, then all back here, and now sending three off to college. And that’s just the basic stuff going on…. Add in a bit of a rainy summer and capsized sailboat and the result is not that many trips to the beach. My husband and I managed a few evening walks and he always finds the unusual colors! (I get all the white and greens.) But I did find the biggest Lucky Stone yet! (You can read about Lucky Stones here.)
There were days when Lake Erie was furious!
There were some things I said “no” to, and a few I said “yes” to. How could I not do this run again?
That’s just a touch of some of the things I have been doing. Now, I have to take a special, young lady off to college.
Wonderful wonderful pictures of Annie Jane! I love them-she has such classic timeless beauty.
That rug is so pretty. I really need to try making one of those some time.
