A finished project...TADAH

Hoo - rah! Time to cheer for me. With summer being at the peak of crazy busy,I was pretty happy that I actually completed a project.

This little shawl that I refer to as an epaulet because it just sits on your shoulder and keeps that annoying breeze from the air conditioner at bay.

When this photo was taken I had just started the shawl.We were still in sweater mode. Sarah was a brunette then, THIS is what she looks like now.That girl is changing with the seasons.Cindy was sipping on water and probably thinking this picture better not make it to the blog. Sorry Cindy I couldn't help myself,just a little laughter and light as you always say.
So here is the finished product.

Being modeled by the loverly "sock queen" who told me to be sure to keep her face out of the picture. What a demanding....................said the hobbit.

Here in New England

What fun! This weekend was spent in Portsmouth N.H. Prescott Park.Our youngest SARAH was performing Shakespeare in the park.

This was a first at Prescott since they have always done a children's play for summer fun.

They chose Midsummer Nights Dream. This is one of Shakespeare's lighter plays and, a fantastic job was done by all involved. Of course, there was a sufficient amount of death and mayhem to keep everyone's interest.Then intermission gave us an opportunity to walk around the park

and view some awesome sites. This bridge was dedicated in 1923 and up until a few weeks ago saw traffic crossing from Portsmouth into Kittery Maine. Of course in the summer the center of this bridge went up every 30 minutes like clockwork,so, you had to really time your trip.Repairs are set to begin in the near future.
Spanning to the right of the bridge in the far distance you see a building that was used as a prison during World War II. When it had served its purpose it was filled with cement top to bottom so that it would never be used again. And so came an end to intermission and back to the play.
Deep conversations of undying love and commitment and of course in the end.
They lived happily ever after and a good time was had by all. Tadah....................said the hobbit

Barn raising quilt

It's been awhile since I've spoken of the BARN RAISING QUILT We are still moving on the project and are starting to see it really come together.Look at all these great squares!!!

I've been playing with the colors trying to get a good mix. However it hardly makes a difference how I place them. I love all the combinations.

After much thought,our group decided to make 2 carriage blankets for the RUNNING NUNS

We're moving right along on the second one. After all they need an extra blankie for those really nippy runs in the fall.I'm just starting to sew the seams today,hopefully, I can show you the finished product soon................said the hobbit
