Design Wall Monday...

...and NSM Days 26 and 27. 

With our water issues of last week, I spent a lot of my sewing time making string blocks. Neutral blocks and colored blocks. Lots of them. Lots of mindless sewing. Sadly I didn't sew anything on Sunday. So my sewing everyday streak for National Sewing Month has ended. I will finish out them month by continuing to sew every day.

Earlier in the week, I made my 1st tester bra. It turned out so nice and pretty but it has issues. The band fits pretty good but the cups are too small. Back to the videos I go to find out where I need to adjust things. I think I know but I want to be sure before I start on tester #2.

Now just for the fun of it:

One day Crystal and the kids stopped by while waiting to take Leland to school. He drew me a picture. Gram is prite (pri te) is hanging on the kitchen door. My heart melts a little each time I look at it. I keep thinking I might want to turn this into a pillow.

Saturday we took spent the afternoon with friends. We drove by Silver Lake and I had to get a picture out the truck window as we were going past the lake. We've spent quite a bit of time at this lake when our kiddos were small. Ernie used to work up near Spirit Lake and Mt. St. Helens before she erupted so there are lots of great memories of this place. If you are ever in the neighborhood, you should take a day trip up Spirit Lake Hiway and see the mountain and the visitor centers. You'll drive right by Silver Lake.

Since it is Monday, I'll be taking a tour around Blogland and seeing what others have on their Design Wall Monday posts that have been linked to Patchwork Times. Thanks Judy L for making my Monday morning fun.

You must make your picture into a pillow. How precious!! The photo of the lake is gorgeous. Have a great day.

Awww....Leland's picture and the sentiment are wonderful! A pillow would be a fun way to preserve it.

Water issues are no fun, but your lake picture is cool! Awesome Gram picture too.

That picture is just too precious! Great job getting some string blocks done despite the issues.
