Polly, Quilt Guild meeting, Daughter, and Curtains

Daughter Stacy and her friend Chris.
What four 'kids' look like after being in a cave playing for five hours.
Polly just returned from the Doggy Beauty shop. Pretty girl.
Some of Kris S's work.

I think this quilt is a raffle quilt with the Reedsburg Quilt guild.
The bubble sheer curtains took me 2 days to make. The batik privacy curtains took one hour. I was happy with the results but glad to move on to working on a camping quilt.
Off to the next chapter in the life of one Shiny Bubble. ....

My camera is still having battery / working issues so the group photo didn't turn out.

Homestead under the Setting Sun

This was the view last Friday night. Spectacular, Huh?

Even Sophie was caught in the warm glow of the setting sun.
She seemed to grasp that something special was happening.

Looking for this fabric......

Stiff fabric on Left, soft and limp on the Right.

I would like to find a source for making my own finch thistle socks. I think it is a polyester something. I have two different kinds. One is very stiff and rigid while those shown in the pictures feel like the mesh laundry bags but a finer weave. It has to hold the teeny tiny nyjer thistle seed. So if anyone knows, please point me in the right direction .
thanks and have a great Father's Day weekend. I am readying my 'Shiny Bubble' for her first trip away from home ~ the Fourth of July celebration. I have completed the slightly padded cornice boards above the windows. Now I can move on to the curtains.
Keep it real, Patsy
