Holding On To Summer

I finally finished my Anchor Quilt. It still needs to be quilted and bound, so it probably won't be ready to hang in my living room until next August. I've noticed other bloggers are already gearing up for Halloween and even Christmas. I'm still hanging onto summer, working on a couple nautical projects.'
These dish towels worked up pretty quickly.

I decided I wanted some nautical pillows but the fabric I found that was the closest to what I had envisioned was too bright, so I used the wrong side of the fabric to get the kind of faded look I wanted. I really appreciate you stopping by and hope you will come again! -Derrith

These are all just lovely! I'm trying to keep summer going as long as possible here too - just don't want to think about winter approaching!
Have a happy day,
