a cute little book

Good morning.  It is still on the cool side here on the West Coast  as we are knee deep in what we affectionately call June gloom.

I have been enjoying some productive hours behind my sewing machine and am busy putting a super simple pattern together for a summer quilting class I will be teaching here in my home. 

I've been thinking that I will post it here on the blog as well, so that you all can sew a long.

I had to share a few photos of the cute little book I made for the shower I went to on Sunday.

These little memory albums are so fun to put together.  I think we'll have a book a long in the near future, too.

I just finalized the details on one of the doors that has opened to me recently and I can't wait to share it with you soon.  There are still a couple of puzzle pieces that need to come together and so my learning to wait skills continue to be sharpened.  Ha!  I guess they must have been pretty dull to start with to require so much work now.

I guess that's it for me this lazy Tuesday morning.  Now it's your turn, what's keeping you busy?  And does it feel like summer where you are?

xo, Patty
