We Have Cover

We have real cover!!  35’ of roof over our heads.  This was just our deck but now it is our real front porch.

And we are enjoying it already.  We need to clean up the building debris and put some order out here but that will have to wait until we have enjoyed this respite from the sun for just a little while.

We will be removing the little blue thingy to the back yard, but again, will have to wait.

No sewing or quilting this weekend.  However, I have packed up the hexies, some blocks that need embroidery, and the dragon and the thread I am using to applique him so that I have something to work on while on vacation. 

And I do have a finish to show.  Yesterday was my mother’s 90th birthday and, of course, I had to make something special for her. 
Mother 90th birthday  She collects all things chicken and Fat Cat Designs’ Funky Chicken just seemed perfect.  And she was so much fun to create.  Mother says her eyes follow her around and seem to remind her that the dishes need washing.  Sarcastic smile  So, again,
                 HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOTHER!

Enjoy your vacation. Hexies and applique sounds like just the perfect recipe for relaxation.

Happy Vacation!!! The roof looks fantastic and I can't wait to show it to hubby as I whine for one here. :)
I love the pillow! Happy Birthday to your mom.

What a fun gift!
Enjoy your porch, your vacation and your dragon...not necessarily in that order!

Cute chicken pillow. I've saved those chickens but haven't made any yet. Some day, maybe. I'm hoping to get some sewing done one of these days. Maybe tomorrow as I won't have a car one day this week.

Nice plentiful shade sounds just right! Love the chicken pillow :)

Congratulations to the perfect roof for your porch. What type of materials did you use for that? It's kind of small to use asphalt or metal shingles. It seems to me that you used steel roofing for this one. By the way, belated happy birthday for your mother! That chicken design is awesome.
