I bought a fat quarter bundle of Flower Sugar by Lecien Fabrics from Fat Quarter Shop and can’t wait to make something with them. Right now they are on sale but I’m not sure how long that will last as they were part of the Fat Quarter Pre-Cuts of the week sale. About half of the fat quarters had the selvage edge on them….that is like a bonus to me! The bundle has 22 fat quarters in it, I can see a baby quilt made with them.
This weekend was busy but I got very little quilting done. Builder Bob was busy with several projects and of course needed an assistant……me! We wanted a way to have Sadie out on the deck and not worry about her getting off of it. There are double steps on the front of the house and we wanted to be able to see her so this is a gate that slides up to remove. Builder Bob bought spindles and cut them in half for a short gate that I can easily step over and Sadie can’t jump over.For the back side of the house he put a hinged gate that is self closing but easy to open if you are coming up the steps. Builder Bob still has to put a top on the gates but he got side tracked on another project which you can see on the right.He had bought a new grill as our old one was falling apart and it was time to put it together. I should have taken a better picture…..I can honestly say that there is no way I would want to try and put a grill together…..too many pieces! He did a great job.Wouldn’t you know it…….Builder Bob got the grill all put together and it ended up being too windy to grill. Even little Sadie thought it was too windy! I think it is getting time to get a puppy cut for the summer.We ran up to Costco Sunday morning for a few things and ended up coming home with a new rug for the deck. It is supposed to be a indoor/outdoor rug and now that we have a roof over the deck….it will be perfect.Sadie is really enjoying the deck and her little steps.
Sunday Builder Bob became Chef Bob fixing all kinds of goodies! Two different kinds of ribs, chicken wings and potato squares. We also had coleslaw and a corn dish. Yummy!
After dinner it was time to check out my brother’s new Quadcopter drone. He took a neat video of the river and our little town. The lighting wasn’t the best but there will be more videos this summer and I’ll be sure and share one.
