Mr. Sunflowers and J are out purchasing the swing set and the lumber as I type now which is probably a good thing since it is smack dab in the middle of the day (read that as the hottest part). That leaves me a few minutes to share today's flower granny with you. Today's pattern is called Something Pretty and is the brain child of Mille over at Mille Makes. She made this awesome pillow:
here but she also gives directions for her slip stitch join so you can get that neat little chain stitch looking join you see above.
Should you decide to make this, or any of the other June Bloom patterns, I would love for you to share your photos with me on the Sunflowers at Home Facebook page.
Just got a call from hubby. Kmart (the least expensive local swing set retailer in our area) informed him that they did not have our swing set in stock despite the fact that the internet said they did. Hubby then asked about what they did have in stock. Stock guys said he had one for $50 more. Asked if it was in stock, he said he had to check. Lo and behold they also had FIVE of the swing sets we wanted. We always seem to have problems with Kmart which is why we rarely shop there. So Mr. Sunflower and J Sunflower are on their way home which means back to work for me!
Until next time,
P.S. No, I am not so lucky that my hubby gets to stay home on a weekday. I wrote this post on Memorial Day.
