LATELY

I can't remember a time when I have felt so busy. Every day is 'hair straight back' !  It sure is fun though having my own little shop.

Word blocks have been arriving in the mail and I'm getting ideas as to how this quilt is going to look



Just a couple more words to come and I can start to assemble : )

I did actually carve out a few minutes to sew a bee block.


I had free reign with the setting of these half square triangles to go in Stephanie's quilt.

My daughter came to the shop and changed out the window display to a camping theme for May.  It even includes a campfire with a roasting 'marshmallow'.




the view from outside : )


even a stump and hiking boots complete with woolly socks!

I had a baby shower to attend a while back so I knit up this little hat to match a jacket I bought.


and I have been wanting to try knitting a little pixie hat.........so I did : )


I had a lovely Mother's day spent with family.  Always so fun.

Have a lovely week
Carla

I love that Window!!

The words are really speaking to me. I think I have instructions for making word blocks. You have me on the hunt now. I'm not sure I have visited here (I stopped from Janine's link up). I'll take a look around before I leave.
xx, Carol
