I Like Thursdays #13 on Friday the 13th

We just got home from a few days at the beach. 

Before we left, I did some fun stuff.

I finished Grandson Leland's quilt. 
He's quite happy with it.
I'm talking giant kiss and hug happy!!

I learned to use my new ProClick binding system. 

I now have several of my pattern instructions bound into booklets.

I found my July UFO in my jungle of a sewing room.
I like that the backing and the binding were with it.

When we got to the beach, we learned the deer have found a way into our fenced area.
Those sneaky sneaks have been jumping our fence.

They like pretty flowers.

They really like the geraniums.
See that guard dog Daisy?
She was not on duty at the time.
Because if she had been, this may or may not have happened.

Tony was not on duty either.
We think they started by reaching over the corner fence to get the snowball bush.
Then figured they should just come on in.
Maybe they thought I had some cookies and coffee.

Ernie helped our friend Bill build his new chicken coop.
I stayed at the bus to sew. 
My seam guide had lost it's sticky.
I couldn't believe I didn't have any tape of any kind.
But I had a band-aid and it worked great.

I love my little ironing board.
It just makes me smile.
And that little iron is the best!

I've been great progress on my I hate the freeway socks.
One more trip and I may be able to wear them.
After it cools down again.

I love summer but I'm a fair weather gal. 
Give me high 70s-low 80s.
That's why I love the beach! 

Have a wonderful week.
I hope it is full of all the things you like.
