Summer Days

These lazy summer days are going by way to fast!  Okay, so ours aren't really lazy.  We've just finished up artificial inseminating 50+ head of cattle, transferred roughly 25 embryos into our recipient cows, I ultra sounded 20+ head of cattle, and have had 66 calves born thus far.



Both kiddos are in the preschool summer school program and are having a blast.  Yesterday they "visited" Italy on their train tour of Europe.  It's exciting to hear what they learn and eat at each stop.  The teachers joke that they are "eating their way through Europe" as at each "stop" they make a food from that place.  In Wales they had welsh cake, in Italy pasta, etc.

Since Aslyn is going much more regularly now, I made her  a lunchbox just like her brothers.  Instead of trains, I used a couple of the Puppy Park prints I had won at Sewing Summit last year, as well as pieces from my stash.





Finished these kitchen towels from Patchwork, Please! 




Well, I'm off to chaufer kids to school!  Have a happy Thursday!

Patchwork, Please! Bell Pepper Coasters

I received Ayumi's new book Patchwork, Please! about a month ago. This book is filled with so many cute projects!

There is a sew along with this book organized  by Lindsey & Debbie, which features a new project each Monday.  The first project being these adorable bell pepper coasters!




These were so easy to put together, and a great way to use up a few of your scraps!  Win, win!

I'm thinking an orange bell pepper needs to be added to this little bell pepper family!

Randomn Thursday

School is out for the summer.  The preschool that my kiddos go to have two summer programs and every year we enroll them in that.  This year's June summer program theme is "A Train Tour through Europe."  So that starts up on Monday.  It would be fantastic to actually get to do it don't you think?
 
 
 
 
A few more little random projects I sewed.  This tote bag from Zakka Style




And I am working on this quilt from Sunday Morning Quilts.  I still have the right side to piece together. When this top is done, it will be number 3 in my basting pile; I think in the next week or so I'll be doing quite a bit of basting and quilting.

 

Saturday plans consist of putting this little garden together in my courtyard.  I know, it's hard to read due to it be a scan from a piece of notebook paper.  But you get the idea.
