Here are some more that I have on my wall. I like this layout better than the other one I had started with.

Patio Furniture

It was so hot and humid today that they had a heat emergency but we still went out and bought some patio furniture and put it together in the heat. It is getting there. I can't wait until it is done but that will be next year for sure except for the fireplace which will be the following year.

New Patio

Here is what happened today at our house. We had a concrete patio poured and the small part sticking out will have a fireplace built on it next year. We love to sit out in the cool weather with a rip roaring fire. Oh so cozy. I will put a small table and chairs near the garden, the garden will be extended all the way to the right and chairs near the fireplace. A little at time and some flowers and things it it will be great.

I dug it out

I am so lucky to have a friend like Becky. She was shuttle tatting this at the retreat and I asked her for a bird and she finished this teapot and gave it to me. She the bird in the post from yesterday. Becky is very talented at painting, tatting and now she just showed me her very first CQ block. She is a natural talent at anything she does in my opinion. Isn't it great? This will go on a block for my kitchen. I will frame the block to keep all the grease and what not off of it.

Look at this cutie!!

OMG, Look what I received in the mail today from my friend Becky. I met Becky at the NH Retreat this year and she is a beautiful person and shuttle tatter. I told her I had a blue parrot and would love a blue bird and she did it. It is the perfect size and now I am going to get a block going to use it on and then hang it in my family room. This little guy is so cute. The picture doesn't do it justice. I took about a dozen pictures and this is the best I could do. THANK YOU BECKY, it is perfect. I owe you.
PS: I still have to take a picture of the teapot she tatted at the retreat and gave. HMMMMMMMMMMM, when I finish unpacking all my goodies. Yes I am bad, I still have some supplies to unpack.
