Little Jacket

I had pieced a quilt...had it quilted...and never put a binding on it because I just didn't like it as a quilt....all I could see was a little girls I cut it up and made this jacket. And I have enough to make a couple more things.

After I put on this binding I remembered purchasing some great buttons from my friend Priscilla....matched perfectly! She has amazing buttons from all over the world.

Now I love it!

What a Summer!!!

One of our trips this summer took us to Rochester to see Great Grandma Murphy and the family...Logan thought he'd try out his skills at the piano....virtuoso????

After this whirlwind summer (so far) I had to come home and sew I put together this Kaffe Fassett strip quilt....that satisfies me for now :)

We had such a wonderful time with our grandson when they visited our home on Long Island....Grampa loved taking him for walks around the Village.

Luckily we had better weather this year for the week at the cottage. He played on the beach everyday, helped me find beach glass, played with his friends and cousins at the playground....all of which made for some long power naps! We miss him so much.
