Dad Trims the Hedge

Well, this certainly isn't headliner news, but I thought it was time to put something up on the blog! Dad trimmed the hedge and now we can see the mountains again from the kitchen - he trimmed about 2 1/2 feet of it. I picked up the branches.

Also, here's the little cushion I made for that old stool.

Here's the garden now - everything's blooming.

New living room look

Here's the sweater from Knitters magazine that I was telling you about.

Got the chairs cleaned and put in place. Here it is.

Father's Day

Yesterday the family came over for Father's Day and we had brats and hot dogs on the grill and some salmon on the grill. Everyone played dice while Hunter and I caught up on some book reading and playing. The weather wasn't too cooperative but we enjoyed an indoor picnic.

New Chairs

Here are the new chairs I purchased at a garage sale on our street. I really love them. They aren't the exact color I would have chosen had I been able to pick a color from a color chart, but I don't hate the color and, for now, may just use pillows to coordinate.

White Skirt

I decided I didn't have anything to wear with this top I made awhile ago, so I made a white skirt to go with it. The fabric is like light-weight denim, although it is not denim and has a little pattern on it.

Felted Slippers

It's like performing a magic trick every time you felt a project. I was happy with the way these slippers turned out. The pattern suggests putting them on your feet while still damp and do further fitting and shaping. They are super comfy. (for before/after comparison see post a little further down.)

Summer is here!

Here is Hunter playing his first street hockey game. And some pictures of us enjoying some time by Liberty Lake and Todd and Amy's jet ski.

I do like this picture of the boys sitting there relaxing.

And we are all SO excited. I guess it takes a cold winter to appreciate summer.
