Happy Memorial Day! Happy Summer !!!



.....Ahhhhhhhhhhh.........it's a BEAUTIFUL day here on my front porch. I spent some time finishing up that apron (YES!!! It's DONE !!!) earlier today, so I decided to come out on the porch and prop my dawgs up on the coffee table, have a glass of tea, and look at a new quilting magazine I picked up at the store yesterday.

I was looking at this page with these CUTE patriotic pillows ....


...Maybe I'll make some for out here on my porch .... or maybe for my mother's Fourth of July birthday ..... but first I've got to finish/start Matt's graduation quilt (I'm thinking of giving him one of my famous I.O.U. notes for unfinished graduation quilts on the June 6th graduation day, and shooting for the June 28th tentative graduation party date ..... how's that for strategy ?! .... always good to have that back up date !!)

Anyhow, those cute patriotic pillows are in this magazine....


















....oh ..... and how about those orange shoes!! Wait, here's a close up.....


Cute huh?!?! (saw them at Walmart and just couldn't pass them up)




I got the orange ones, and these spiffy red ones ....


.....don't ya just love the fabric on the insides!!! I can't decide what's cuter ... the insides or the outsides .....
Anyway .... back to our busy schedule of relaxing ....

(that's Evan about to take a snooze after making sure the bear went back into the woods ..... I'm pretty sure he came out looking for a steak after sniffing the neighbors' BBQ ..... the bear, that is, not Evan .... although Evan was sniffing the air in the direction of the neighbor's grill, too....)

Hope you're having a nice day ... and I'll be back soon!!(with pictures of that apron because.... did I mention that it's FINISHED !!!)

Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

Too cute shoes! Your right the inside is as cute as the outside. Nice hammock too.

Oh, I saw those shoes and tried them on, but they won't fit my non-flat feet....
I don't believe you finished the apron, I need photos for evidence....

Mare-
I'm loving the boots, and both pairs of shoes. I really love the orange ones, I noticed them before you even mentioned them...how on top of it am I? We wear rain boots, here too. When you are three and you have to hold your mama's hand in the parking lots...you tend to drag her through every rain puddle. It is a matter of necessity! I want to see the picture of the apron. Right now! I bet it is too cute. About the quilt, it would make sense to be given at the party. Seems like the RIGHT idea to me. I am going to pick up that magazine. Later!
