She's been wondering why I haven't been posting.
Because... summer, I guess :D
But what a weird summer!
Unlike last year, with hot sunny days from May to September,
this summer didn't really show up until mid-July,
making me extra-thankful for that week with Gunnar in Moses Lake ;D
Meanwhile, with the weather kind of meh,
I had time for a few sewing projects.
My friend Breanna brought me some unique fabric from Myanmar.
Coincidentally, I wanted a footstool for my office, and...
I basically made a big square "sock" and covered a plastic milk crate.
Then I had Wyatt screw a couple pieces of plywood together -
one just a little bigger, and one just a little smaller
than the opening at the top of the milk crate,
so it would sit on top and not slide off...
Found a couple pieces of foam and put them on top of the plywood,
wrapped a piece of fabric around it,
and staple-gunned it to the bottom of the plywood.
A footstool that is also storage :D
So I can make a cup of tea,
sit and rock and put my feet up
with Han Solo ;D
And with the rest of the fabric I recovered our couch pillows.
For whatever reason, my camera? my computer?
does NOT read this color well.
The fabric is a jade/turquoise.
Rewarded myself with a little Canadian treat... Smarties!
It FINALLY got warm enough to go to the lake,
hallelujah and amen,
Haven't the boybarians grown?
Yep. They're man-sized.
We love hanging out at the beach with Grandpa and Grandma Grasshopper :D
Wyatt launched the paddle board.
I just want to be
IN THE WATER.
So does Grandma Grasshopper ;D
The boys invited a friend to come along.
We live in a magical place...
