Oklahoma finish

Now I am ready for fall with The Great Pumpkin. I had started this before my travels and finished it while in Oklahoma. It is machine buttonhole applique.
This is what I made in Oklahoma when we wern't lounging at the pool. The first was a panel that is called Wee Play and I merged in with large half square triangles. It was so easy and fast to make as the squares are very large.

Grandpa's Been Busy

Ok, it was really Grandma's idea, but Grandpa did all of the work. Elise and Sarah helped to fill it with sand, and then Elise gave it a test play. Now she just has to choose whether to play in the fountain or the sandbox.

TheGood Life Part 2

OK OK OK, we are getting spoiled. But just so that you don't think it's all so great, there are a few drawbacks. It is very hot. We left 96 degree weather in Colorado and came to a 106 record setting day. The sidewalk is so hot we cannot walk to the pool from our lounge chairs. We have to wear our flip flops to the pool edge and quickly jump in so not to burn the bottom of our feet. Well it's about time for dinner, and it's steak night so I had better get going. Life is so hard!!
