Summer Fun

Thank you so much to everyone for their nice comments on my quilt! I still haven't gotten around to making a better photograph - here's what I've been up to.

Dyeing fabric

Lately when I've dyed fabric it's been for a very specific purpose. My last few dyeing sessions I've instead taken a more serendipitous approach, and it's been quite enjoyable. In the top photo the middle fabric (with the most colors) has already been made into the most fun pajama pants I've ever had. Added bonus: when we go to the beach in a few weeks it'll give my siblings something to make fun of (as if they needed any help).

Mostly though I've been trying to keep up with the boys. Here they're about to "investigate" a large ant colony on the rock in our front yard.

And here they are racing towards a pavilion at Brookside Gardens after a tour of the butterfly garden.

My nephew's birthday is in June, and there's always a pool party to celebrate. There were 12 children at the party, and things had started to wind down a little - until Uncle Bobby showed up.

I hope you all have a safe and happy 4th!
