This post is a reminder of things that I would like to do over the summer. Things to make, projects around the house, and fun things I would like to do.

2. Go to the beach.

4. Make a granny square blanket.
5. Soak City!
6. Make a new ironing board cover with CUTE fabric.

7. Clean out and organize the sewing room.
8. Take walks.
9. Drink lots of iced coffee.
10. Trip to the zoo.
11. Plan a 4th of July getaway.
12. Cook out on the grill.
13. Go to an Indians game.

14. Visit the Botanical garden.
15. Trip to the Lake Erie islands.

16. Plant some herbs and zinnias.
17. Go to the County Fair. Eat cotton candy!
18. Stop at a farmers market for fresh corn.

19. Make a vintage sheet quilt.
20. Paint the front porch.

I am sure there are other things that I have mentioned, and will probably add to this list as the summer progresses.

Do you have a summer list?


  1. No, I don't have a list, but yours sure is inspiring! I think I would get a lot more done if I had some things written down, instead of things just floating around in my head!

    I like #9. I drank my first iced coffee about 3 weeks ago and I loved it. It certainly won't be my last!

  2. That is quite an ambitious list! I hope you accomplish it all! Thanks so much for visiting me at Home in Douglas! I love new visitors/followers!

  3. I always have a list but I really like yours! This will be my first summer that I don't work so hopefully I will be able to cross a few things off my list. Patty

  4. I don't have a list, but I think yours is great. It is making me think of some things to plan for the summer! Thank you for sharing yours!

  5. Love that list! I started mine the other day and am so looking forward to the summer months :) Have a wonderful Thursday!

  6. I haven't written my want to do's on a list, it's all just floating around in my head. Maybe a list would be better! Ha Your list looks great, looking forward to following along.

  7. I've been thinking about making a quilt from vintage sheets for a while now. I've really loved all the ones I've seen. There's something so sweet about them.

    I just want to work in the garden (headed home in 2 days) and clean and sort my house.


  8. I always make a summer list and only ever get a few things on it done! Looks as if you are going to be really busy.

  9. Hi Debbie, I love your happy list, lots of fun things on it. I think I just have an on going list, not a special summer one, BUT I think it's a great idea. Hope you get to do them all and more! Happy Weekend to you soon, xoRobin❤ Love all you photos too

  10. Good idea, that list of yours. I think I share a few of your to dos, especially the "make a new ironing board cover", walking and iced coffee. Also the cotton candy, cooking on the grill and going to the beach. Oh heck, can I just cut and paste your list?

  11. You are going to be one busy lady! I will keep up with many of the same activities that I am part of now. Your list sounds like it will be lots of fun to complete. Have a good time with it.

  12. Debbie I'm coming to yours for the summer.....sounds great :)
    Lol Karen xx

  13. What fun. I have pincushion love right now, so I can't wait to see which one you make.

  14. Now that you mention it, iced coffee sounds real good right now.

  15. I cannot believe you are talking about iced coffee! That means you have heat and maybe warm sunshine! It is so cold here in England. I do love your sunny sunflowers, they remind me of Van Gogh paintings.

  16. Hi Debbie,
    Sounds like a busy, FUN, and productive summer! :-) I hope you make great progress on your list, and if you get around to the gingham drapes and the vintage sheet quilt, I'll be anxious for photos! Both of those sound right up my alley!

  17. Your going to have a busy summer, remember all work and no play makes for no sewing. Have fun, especially at the Indians game and Lake Erie. i was raised in Cuyahoga Falls and Fremont, Ohio. Once an Ohio girl, always an Ohio girl!

  18. Hi Debbie--Love your blog, by the way and your beautiful projects. Curious how to crochet in a circle. will have to look that up. I have lists, but only in my mind at this point...need to put them on paper. Love the things you are planning. I would have to Cincinnati Reds game since I am in the southern part of the great State of O-H-I-O!!!

  19. What a lovely idea. I shall make a summer list pronto!

    Eat cotton candy ... goodness I can't remember when I last did that :D

  20. Gorgeous flowers...what colours...great snapshots too.
    Busy is best I say especially craft busy
