Paper Flowers

I just couldn't wait for it to be completely finished before I posted a peek at my new pattern
"Paper Flowers".
 I have several new designs coming to my shop, but this one will be free to download from my blog! I’ll let you know as soon as it's ready.

Double Sided Binding

I posted this tutorial a while back but somehow it was lost in my blog with no link, so I thought I would post it again.  Come see how easy it is to make
Double Sided Binding!


I guess I'm in line for the Worst Blogger Award this summer. I’ve wanted to keep you up-to-date, but time just got away from me. I’ve been working all summer on a very exciting project that I’m looking forward to sharing with you, but I can’t spill the beans just yet … but very soon!

While you’re waiting for the beans to spill, here are a couple of highlights of my summer.

Jennifer and her pony “Apples” kept us on our toes with lots of horse shows. This year she competed at some International shows and they did very well together, bringing home lots of ribbons and wonderful memories.

Apples loves dogs! She spent about 10 minutes playing with this dog who was wandering around the show grounds. How sweet!

Although Jenny is very serious about all this Apples always made us laugh. She is one funny pony!

A week of this was easy to take. The coast of Maine was beautiful again this year.

And last but not least, our son William turned 16. Sixteen! Where has all the time gone?! I miss my little boy, but I love the wonderful young man he is growing into.
Summer is almost over for us and it has been busy
… but so much fun!

I hope you're all having a wonderful summer!
