June in Review

June flew by. July is half way over. I've fallen quite a bit behind, but lazy Summer days will do that. 

1) Prospect Heights neighbor says hello. 2) hand stitching in a very traditional manner (for me). 3) Pit helps me with a commission. 4) Tom contemplates great thoughts.

I was busy in June. The usual mix of work, work, and work. But work can be so many things!  I worked for my job, I worked for my quilts, I worked to keep my family happy and healthy. June was about maintaining a peaceful balance of all the work that goes into life.

1) The sky and sea captured in a Jellyfish. 2) Nighttime walking. 3) Room with a view (sorta) at the at our favorite beach hotel. 4) Our version of hotel living with beach colors.

In Brooklyn, the weather was perfect. But Down The Shore, it was better! We took as many beach trips as our schedules allowed. In some ways June was uneventful, as we just ping-ponged between our home and home away from home. But those early sunny Summer days were rejuvenating and much needed after the long and grueling Winter and the hectic startling Spring. 

1) 6th Ave, Between 10th and 11th Streets, a two faced watcher sits. 2) In Ocean Grove, NJ, this watcher might have an ocean view from up there. 3) Lazy Summer days for watchers on 8th St. 4) This watcher is happy to have the windows open in Prospect Heights.

Watcher spotting was mixed in June, as many windows were over-run by air conditioners, and many kitties lounged in cooler spots. Sometimes we chose to search for seaglass, instead of watchers. But, thankfully,  in every season there are some watchers waiting to be found. 

Hot Summer days are not the most conducive to quilting, but progress was made. I am hopeful that there will be finishes to share soon. 

June was even, balanced, bright and sunny. It was refreshing and inspiring. It was sweet and strong, like Summer should be. July is feels much the same, so far, but it's not over yet. Are we ready to find out how July's story ends?
