The Masterpiece by Javan

The Masterpiece by Javan

We are born into the world like a blank canvas and each person that crosses our path takes up the brush and makes his mark upon our surface

So it is that we develop

But we must realize there comes a day that we must take up the brush and finish the work

For only we can determine if we are to be just another painting or a Masterpiece. Javan

Well, Well, Well - It Sure is Hot in NC

I am here - and it feels like we are all melting away with this heat and humidity. I can't wait for Autumn or even Winter, since we do have mild ones. Older I get, the hotter the days.

We have been staying busy with family visiting from Colorado. Jeff and Pam and four boys, Aaron, Joseph, Alex and Riley, were here for three days - little boys are still as busy as ever and require as much refereeing and re-tasking as ever. We loved having them here and they are so enjoying the East coast and all it offers. They got to see the Atlantic Ocean and the USS North Carolina battleship - you would think that walking all over a battleship and then going to the beach would make them tired - it didn't. They got to drive the golf cart all over our property and they got to go to the Children's Museum in Raleigh one day. Fun, fun, fun was the order of each day.

Another son Scott from Colorado will be dropping in this weekend for a couple days and his wife, Debbie  will be here later next week.  At least they give us time to wash the linens and buy more provisions.  With six children, it is good they do not show up all at once for goodness sakes.

I have returned to my room and working steadily this week on my July UFO challenge for Patchwork Times. I knew this number two would be called eventually and it is the one with the most to do.

There are lots of blocks with this one and still many to do, but at least the embroidery blocks are all done.

Just a small update - I will be coming back very soon with more information on the Stash Manicure Wantobe Quilters Campaign - see my sidebar - you will not want to miss this, especially if you are a Wantobe Quilter.  This campaign is to recruit and help out new quilters only - who will carry on the quilting  tradition. Stay tuned for lots of giveaways over on Stash.
Judy C and her DWH send you joy along with some AC on your journey
