I finished a sewing project!

I finished a sewing project: a portable chalkboard placement from a kit I bought at the York Sewing Studio during Shop Hop. It was fun to make, and since I can easily buy more of the chalk board cloth here in Seward at Fabric Fair, I will probably make some more. Next time I will use a flatter batting since this one is too pouffy. I would also attach the tie in the middle rather than off center as the directions said. Here is a picture of the placement rolled up:

Dave snapped this photo of me on June 3, picking some of the first strawberries from our patch. I am probably lucky he didn't decide to turn on the sprinkler behind me!

Zoo trip

We had a good time at the zoo on Friday, May 29. We went with all five grandchildren, Liz and Jill. Grandpa considered it the beginning of his birthday weekend.
