Lining and Woof

It is a pleasant day outside.  Walking was great.  I have to remind myself to appreciate this weather where I don't even have to wear a coat.  It is officially summer now.  I'm a little sad as the daylight now starts to to shorten.  I love it when it stays light until after 9:30 at night.  I am getting ready for our trip next week to see the grandchildren (and Son#2 and DIL!)  I made up the little fabric book that I got in Minnesota for Evan.

The printing could have been more exact on this.  The pages aren't the same size and it was impossible to make the book perfect.  But I guess it is close enough.

I also lined the wonderful burlwood box from the retreat.  The top edge of the box needs to be painted black.  I think I have some paint downstairs that will work.

 It isn't perfect either.  I learned the hard way that I needed to lace the short sides first and then the long sides so no little fold would show.  I need to redo the top inside lining so that it fits snugly.
BFF#2 and I are going to Stitching Bits and Bobs tomorrow so I may not get a chance to post.  I haven't been there in a long time.  It's always fun to go to a needlework store.


  1. This is adorable! My aunt made a similar book for my son when he was little and he absolutely loved it. He is 27 and I still have it saved for his children.

  2. The book is too cute.
    That box is going to be gorgeous, love the green.
    Have fun at Bits & Bob's!
