A Couple of Summertime Pieces

I finally picked my butt up off the recliner and decided to do a little sewing. Well, I haven't been THAT bad. I've been busy elsewhere lately. With all the end of school activities going on, some days I don't know if I'm coming or going. Our school year runs so much later than most. Last day isn't until next Wednesday. And......I've actually started going to the gym with my husband and oldest son. Every day this week, in fact! And my body is surely feeling it! It's really amazing what a little exercise can do for the mind frame, though. Cross your fingers for me and wish me luck to continue!

I just finished up a couple of summer pieces. I have many things in the making and hope to get a few more items listed this week. Both pieces are listed on my Olde Annie Primitives website.

We are just now getting our spring and I'm FINALLY getting out in the yard for some much needed cleanup. I haven't even planted any flowers yet! What a strange year this has been! Sure hope summer is being better to you all. ~~Annie


  1. School sure does run later by you! Good Luck with the gym and I bet you are feeling it. Its a good feeling!! I love the new summer pieces. Summer not much here either. Hope we both get some soon!

  2. Way to go on exercising!! It's so hard to do ~ I've been taking nightly walks with the family & it really has been amazing how great I feel when we are done. :O)
    Your summer pieces are really cute! Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. I love both of your creations, especially the crows tucked in an old quilt. Exercise is not fun, but sometimes we have to do it for our health. Gotta keep our health up so we can keep crafting.
    Love your new creations and can't wait to see more.
    Country at heart

  4. Very nice Annie. I love the crow sack and the watermelon hanger. I'm proud of you going to the gym. I does help having a work out partner or two. Keep up the good work.

  5. Oooh, I love the new creations!
    I've been doing "health walks" around my neighborhood recently and really enjoy them as long as the day doesn't get too hot. Have a nice weekend.

  6. Wishing you the very best with your exercise regimen! I love anything with sunflowers...!
