JOY at last

Believe it or not I have been sewing and working in the yard. I planted some impatiens with my grandson yesterday. He got soaking wet as usual. He said you watered me Nana. The weather here is hot hot, might as well be summer.

I reworked by JOY for Tonya. I like this Y much better. It was a challenge but so much fun to do. I really enjoy letters. I should do it more often. Don't you just love the balloon print as a background?

My neighbor is pregnant and due at the end of the month. Her husband is a medical resident and on call this month so we are on stand by to take her to the hospital. Wouldn't that be fun! They don't know if it is boy or girl so I had to use green and yellow. I have shown this before but it is now together and I need to quilt it soon so I can get it done before the baby arrives.

And this is the cute print that will go on the back. I found both prints at Walmart. The one for the back is a larger version of the one I fussy cut for the front. I really like the old nursery rhymes. Kids still love them.

Your Joy looks joyful! I really like it, and that strip of red across the J really is a nice touch.

I think your JOY is great! And your Y is perfect. But I love the O.

We're finally getting some hot weather here. Supposed to be high 80's today. I may have to go water myself!
