Last week at the library I attended my second Bob Ross night event. It was sooooo relaxing. I love how this painting came out. The "happy little trees" really do make me happy.

This weekend I worked on moving and caring for some of my outdoor plants. Let's start with the poppy plant that a friend gave me early in the summer. It finally bloomed THIS WEEKEND!!!

This little quilt was on and off the frame so fast I almost didn't take a photo of it.

This week I made a Tree of Life block in aqua. I really like the colors in this block even through trees aren't this color.

Last night I stepped out of my comfort zone and went to a painting class at one of our local libraries. The free class provided supplies to paint this photo. An old Bob Ross video played. We tried to learn techniques from Bob Ross. Every once in a while the librarian would hit pause and rewind. We would look at it and then paint some more.

I finished the longarm quilting on a quilt for a friend. I returned it this week. She will trim and bind it. I used my giant Circle Lord board called Egyptian Eye for the quilting on it. I did not finish the center of the eye and left that area open. My thread matched the solid backing of the quilt perfectly.

Today I made this super cute bookmark/pen holder. It is a DIY project from SEW CAN SHE. You can find the tutorial here. It is a super-fast project!

It took me a while to make this block today. It's called Tree of Life.

I finished the longarm quilting on my 91 year-old friend's quilt. It's all party on the front and business in the back (unlike some of my favorite 80's hairstyles...)

It was such an awesome summer for our little family. School officially starts tomorrow. Owen will be in 10th grade. Here's some of the things we did this summer.
We kicked the summer off at the local Memorial Day parade with Aunt Jo. A Block Lotto quilt was there.
