A Sunshiny Day!

It's a beautiful sunshiny day here in Kansas, finally! I swear the sun has been a rare sight these past 2 weeks. Hubby and I had dinner last night in Kansas City, we sat on the patio of Cafe Trio, enjoying the warmth, a wonderful dinner and a pretty city view while the sun went down. 
Rainy days do however lend to getting some work done and I have been in the sewing room most of this week working on multiple projects. 
This pretty pile of fabric arrived in the mail, all beautiful Jennifer Paganelli fat quarters. I've been slowly working on a quilt, just for me. 

I also introduced Daisy to my sewing room this week. Oh boy, lots of stuff to get in to in here she is thinking! But how can you say no to that cute little face. And believe me she uses this cuteness look often to her advantage.

Quiet time revolves around watching bird videos on my computer.

The mailman also brought my quilt tops home from Brenda! Aways an exciting day to see how beautifully she finished my work. This weekend I am sewing bindings on to get them ready for cover photos. 

Summer is almost here and I have my once a year SUMMER SALE running on my website. 
20% off patterns only through June 25th. Now is a great time to get started on those Christmas projects. I don't know about you but I always have something to stitch on when we travel and get a lot done that way!
And now I am going to do something I have not done in awhile, soak up some vitamin D in that sunshine and enjoy my book with a big glass of Iced Tea!
Enjoy your weekend and Happy Fathers Day to all the Daddies out there!

Meet Miss Daisy!

A busy week, as you know on Thursday we made a trip to Clay Center Kansas to pick up our kitten Daisy from the breeder. A long day there and back but a beautiful one at that, the sun was shining and the scenery was beautiful! Tall grass prairie most of the way west of Kansas City, hard to capture it's beauty as it is so vast. 

The drive home went well, Daisy cried a bit but soon settled down and napped all the way home. 
Once home she ran and hid under my chair and sofa for a day :( I could tell she was very interested in this sparkly fish but no way was she coming out! 

Day 2 Daisy gave in and ventured out. She became acclimated to Hubby and I very quickly hopping from one lap to another. She purrs and purrs and is very sweet. She has been very busy exploring her new domain, she likes the top of my computer chair. 

I forgot how silly kittens could be until she jumped down onto my desk, stuck her head right in my tissue box and got it stuck... who would have ever guessed! I suppose I will have to cut the plastic opening on tissue boxes both ways in the future! She is soft and fluffy as a bunny, we are happy she has adjusted so quickly to us, we just love her! 

Tonight I made Indian Tacos from the Indian Fry Bread Mix I showed you in my last post. 

They were so delicious!!

This week I also mailed off two tops to Brenda for quilting, a table runner and wall hanging. 
Can't wait to see what she does with them as always. 
In the mean time I will be writing the patterns and trying to keep up with Miss Daisy!
