Lazy days of summer

I'm having a hard time pulling myself away from my family long enough to post this.  We're having a holiday this weekend, so everyone is out barbecuing and setting off fireworks.  It's our State holiday, "pioneer day" so the rest of the world doesn't understand why we aren't up for business as usual.  We'll probably all be late to work on Monday morning because our route is blocked by the parade.  I'm hoping for a quiet day so I can just dig in and embellish a bunch of mats.

Doggie update:  Gidget is quite picky about who she takes a dislike to on the television.  She loathes Gollum and the Orks from "The Fellowship of the Ring", and she has something against pro golfers!  We just sit and giggle at the people and critters against whom she chooses to defend us.  Midge turned one last weekend, but she seems to be having her second childhood.  Once again she thinks sandals are toys and will remove them from your feet if you're not paying attention.  I'm loathe to discipline her because I know it's just a phase and some day I'll miss those puppy antics.

Here are the notable pieces we finished up this week.  Enjoy!
Jill

Totally awesome Jill! I'm always amazed when I see the pics posted on the blog every week, there's always something new I didn't see when I was in your studio. I swear you find ways to hide things from me.
