Celebration Mode

Everyone seems to be in a celebration mode and gearing up for lots of barbecuing and beaching.  There are numerous reasons to be in such a good mood; the weather in Delaware right now couldn't be much nicer; low humidity, warm beach temps, sunshine but not oppressive, it is a holiday weekend with an extra day off from work for most.  Well, unless you're retired and you are always off from working for the other man.

When I went to the attic to look for my little boats and light house to complete the arrangement for the sofa table, I found this quilt piece I'd also done in anticipation of being in the house in the woods.  I was enthusiastic to change the decorations throughout the house for every month and every season so did a lot of decorative sewing in preparation of the move.

And then here is the arrangement now placed on the sofa table.  You can see my hooking frame on the other side of the sofa patiently waiting for me to return.  On the table, from left to right.... a part of a framed picture of my grandson Zachary, a cute little birdhouse made with old parts of the Chalefont hotel from Cape May, NJ (I purchased that last year when I attended Rugs by the Sea rug camp.  Just had to have that as a bit of nostalgia of the memories from the Victorian hotel and the fun had at camp with  my friends.  Maybe I'll purchase yet another this year if they have more in September.  And then the little knick knacks with my quilt piece.

Enjoy the long weekend and be safe.
