Where Have I Been (Part 3)?

 Hi There!

Well, if you read my last Blog post, you'll remember that I had a sore paw and was trying to lay low.

During the first week of June, I decided we needed some flowers for our deck.  

I do NOT have a green thumb.

Last year, I paid fairly big moolah and got several nice pre-potted hanging flowers.

And, basically, I got what I paid for.
Nice flowers ALL summer long.
No droopy, dead looking, pathetic flowers.

This year, I did the same thing.

80 bucks got me this...

And this one.  
They're both identical and with the red and white, 
I thought they looked like our Canadian flag!

And these 2, in the orangish colors.

Got home and Gilbert hung them up.
Instant summer!

My cousin, Lynn's been telling me that I need to ICE my palm.

15 minutes and 15 minutes off.

I decided to pick up a Tim Horton's Iced Lemonade
and ICE my palm, while sitting on our deck!

Summer Time!

 Gilbert and I have several outdoor renovation projects to do, this summer.

We decided to have the lumber delivered.

June 6th....

The delivery guy was really nice and helpful!

 Lumber was delivered.
Now we need a few nice weekends
so Gilbert and work on these projects.

June 10th, I started putting together 
my SnowBall SnowMen Table Runners.

Its all done.
Just waiting for my personal Longarmer 
to create his magic!

Afterwards, I cut out freezer paper and ironed these letters to fabric:

 "Keep Calm
Quilt On"

Yes, I'll be sharing pics as I move along on this project.

Last Sunday - June 16th - Gilbert and I went to our local SPCA.  
They had a Giant Yard Sale Fund Raiser for the SPCA.

We picked up this cutest bow!  
You attach it to her collar with velcro.  
VERY well made!

Well, that's about it for this evening.

I've got a few more pics to share with you....
tomorrow evening.  I hope.

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

The table runners look cute. Is your hand still bothering you?
