Memorial Day weekend means summer here on Long Island!!

I finally got the front porch cleaned and ready for the summer. The weather here is nice and warm, with a lot of sun for the past few days.
My grandpa made this porch swing for me as a Christmas present about 30 years ago when I was really really young!! Did not have a house yet, but I knew I had to have one with a porch when I did buy one.

Two wicker rockers that do not match. They are pretty old too. This is where I sit to read and have tea.

My friend Ronna emailed me this fabric that was for sale on Of course, I had to buy it immediately. Maybe I will make curtains with it, or a new apron.

I started this quilt earlier in the week. The prints are actual feed sacks that I got on Ebay during the past few years. The alternating blocks will be reversed from these, with a print in the background and the flowers plain colors. This quilt is from a great little book called SUGAR SACK QUILTS. One of these days, I will make them all!!

The flower fabric is great and I love your porch swing! Do you have astro-turf or are you married to a land scaper or what - such GREEN grass! You house and yard look beautiful. Happy Memorial Day (tomorrow)

Kenny is a landscaper!! He works on these amazing houses in the Hamptons and would hate to come home to brown, junky grass at his own house.

I think I feel an apron coming on, Bev!
