I like summer! No matter what the calendar says, summer has arrived in Colorado, and it appears we're not looking back!
I like cool mornings on our shady back porch with a good book and an iced latte.
I really liked this book ⬆️ The Identicals, by Elin Hilderbrand. I think it was on a list I saw of the "best beach reads" or something, and even though I'm not anywhere near a beach, I raced right through it! It takes place on both Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, and has all kinds of good storylines - twin sisters who make all the wrong choices, a troubled teenager, romance and family drama, and beaches, too.
These snapdragons are so pretty in my flower garden! I've planted snapdragons multiple times over the years and it's always a pleasant surprise to see them come back!
Would you say their color is magenta?
I found this graphic the other say because I was looking for
different shades of purple and what you might call them.
In my sewing this week, I've been working with some fabric
that I might call "jam" according to the chart!
Definitely a red purple shade.
We had the opportunity to meet up with one of our sons on Sunday for a lunchtime visit. It was so great - we talk to him often but hadn't seen him in person for quite a long time. We meet in between where we all live at a park and bring a picnic lunch. I had shown him a picture of something I saw on Frederique's blog, Quilting, Patchwork, and Applique. She told me it was made with a 3-D printer and sent me a link to the site where you can get the file to make it. Kevin, my son, has a 3-D printer so he made me one of these!
It's the little orange thing that is holding the bobbin and
spool of thread together. Very handy!
Hope you're enjoying summer where you live! I'm joining in with LeeAnna and friends at Not Afraid of Color for I Like Thursday. Check out all the links there for lots of positive posts!
