Sassy Cheryl's: # 171 Here Comes Summer!


This week's Sassy Cheryl's challenge is called, "Here Comes Summer" hosted by yours truly!

Summer!  Got to love it...a swing and a good book for those lazy, hazy days of summer!  I colored with Copics.  My DP is My Mind's Eye.  Don't you love the lady bug brads!  Hmmm...as I look at this now, I think it could use a bit of doodling or faux stitching...it's been one of those days...

It was one of THOSE days-you know the kind...where everything seems to go just wrong.  Now, mind you, nothing life altering, just lots of little frustrations!  I had started making a quilt for sweet baby B (my granddaughter) back in April and then, got sidetracked.  I brought it out this week, prepped it to piece it and today, thought the piecing would go oh, so smoothly as I had measured VERY carefully...but, NOOOO!  ACK!  My seam ripper got lots of use.  Frustration!  Then, too, Internet issues which always make me slightly crazy.  Oh, well...

In any case, I hope you are having a GREAT, non-frustrating day and that you will join us for this week's challenge!
