More Practice In Thread Painting, A Neat Sewing Table & Wheat Harvest

This week I updated my thread painting tutorial with some new pictures of what I've been working on.  It was a fun project to work on and I now have a new email friend, Vic Murayama.  He has beautiful bird pictures and has given me permission to use them--thank you, Mr. Murayama!  I will be updating this tutorial as I find out new things so it will all be in one place for easy access. 

Several weeks ago my husband and I went to an antique tractor show and I had the opportunity to talk to a fellow quilter from another county.  I noticed her sewing table and made a comment about her nice sewing table.

 She was really sweet and let me take pictures to share.

 Her husband cut out an opening to fit her machine and added two more pieces of wood underneath the meat-board to make it a perfect height.

I thought that was a really neat and thrifty idea to share!

We had a safe wheat harvest with no combine fires :)
There was even time to go to a 4th of July party at my sister's home with family and friends.  
Spending time with others is what life's all about :)

Happy Quilting!

That's a great idea for a sewing table!

Glad the harvest was a safe one this year. It's always a concern.

The picture of that Gleaner brings back a few memories. My brothers in Nebraska have a couple of weeks to go which is a little late for them. I'm glad your harvest was uneventful!

The hummingbird is beautiful! Thanks for posting the great tutorial, too.

This is so awesome! :o) I would love to see this first hand one day. :o) We order our wheat for all our grain needs.
