Memorial Day Weekend

 On the hot Memorial Day weekend, I've gotten a ton accomplished. I finished hooking the runner ~ just needs to be blocked and bound. I was going to add another border, but after experimenting, I just didn't like it. So, the scallop border will be the edge.

 Went to the Memorial Day parade in our town. My son was playing the trumpet in the high school marching band. Glad they got to wear t-shirts and shorts and not heavy uniforms. It was only 92 today, which was cooler than yesterday.

 My youngest was also in the parade, marching with his Boy Scout troop.

 I also took an entire day to clean out my stuff in our storage room. It's a lower level bedroom that's unfinished. The room holds all our stuff, and acts as our basement. I store all my craft/art supplies there. I weeded through and sorted. I think I can actually find stuff now.  :)

I've been watching a pair of finches build a nest in our back flower basket. Yesterday there was 1 egg, and today there are 3 eggs. It should be fun to watch!

Hope you had a great Memorial Day weekend!

For some reason our band director got the bright idea for the band to wear their uniforms this year....their wool uniforms. And they march in four local parades. Needless to say he as hot and exhausted when he got home. They usually wear their band tee and khaki shorts, like your son. Your runner look great. The scallop border is a fun edge!

I love that feeling after a big cleaning/organizing project!! I am in serious need of one of those, but it'll have to wait for another few weeks...we still have 3 weeks left of school/work. I'm ready for summer!
