This n That #4

I spent the July 4th weekend doing some quilting and catching up from being out of town recently. It was really nice.
I've been trying to figure out what to work on next, and when exactly the time will free up to do it all. I have a few ideas about the next large quilt. I'm pretty excited about them.

We got new chairs for our library and I've been enjoying the space with some crochet doily coasters that are in a pattern book I brought back with me from DH's grandmother. The coasters range from easy to hard, and I'm sticking towards the easy ones. But I have been enjoying making them, and can make one in a couple of hours, so they fit the bill for the time spent in the room.
I've been drawn to embroidery patterns lately, which is strange, because I have no real desire to start major embroidery projects. I do like
to look at them finished, and even bought a pattern or two that I should finish before buying any more. I do love the look of the Crabapple Hill Studio items, though...
My garden outside my work window is finally underway, though it's a bit too late in the year to buy the roses and peonies I want. But we put the weed fabric down and partially mulched it. It's a start!! This bunny was hanging around for quite a while when the weeds were high.
