red and redwork....

Good Morning....
I've already been out in the driveway helping the hubs cut some boards..
He is building a work bench. Because he only has two already..
whatever..

I joined Dandelion Quilts Summer Tote Swap..and finally opened my package that came way before I had mailed mine out... I remember giving colors as black/white/red and boy did she come through... Cheryl was my swap partner and she did such a great job...There is a large pocket inside along with a smaller pocket and when I looked inside, it was holding an umbrella. Now remember when I traded my VW bug for my jeep? That was just a few weeks ago. Well, I left my umbrella in the VW when we left it at the dealers...lol Now I have a new umbrella...






And while I was sitting at the car dealers Friday waiting for them to do some detailing on my jeep I finished this piece. This is the four corners to a wall hanging. Sorry I didn't press it before the photos were taken. Now I need to trace the center basket and get started on that...
The pattern was in a magazine a long time ago. Luckily a friend of mine had made the quilt and still had the magazine..

I am nursing a huge headache today. Might be the barometric pressure, but I am going to take some aleve, head upstairs and rest a bit. Maybe it will go away.. If so, I will start the tracing..

PS we had some news on the house, but nothing that qualifies for good or bad...still waiting..

Whoa! That is a great bag! How nice that she included the umbrella. Love the redwork. You have show and tell for Redwork on Thursday.

That burger looked like a gourmet burger at a fancy dancy eating establishment. I bet it was tasty.

Have a super great sewing day. Hope the headache is gone.
