Where are the weeks going? I can't believe it's been so long since I've blogged. It's hot and blah right now, so there's not a lot to blog about. This morning I thought, "I'll take my camera out to the walnuts!" Then I hopped in the car and drove off...without the camera, of course. My brain just doesn't function when it's overheated.
I have spent a lot of time admiring my house. The color has really grown on me. My favorite sight is this back door, to the pool bathroom.
Last week was my husband's birthday. Usually I'm at a loss to buy him anything, but this time? He said he wanted "a new pair of TopSiders." wow. His "old" pair was a 30 year old pair of hand-me-downs from my younger brother! Well, they're more than 30, since my brother wore them for who-knows-how-long before he gave them to husband 30 years ago!
Shock of shocks, he's wearing the new shoes. yay!!!
I'm trying to prep for a personal quilt retreat, but can't seem to get my thoughts organized. As I consider taking along this project or that, I'm sewing my way through snippets on my table. Over the weekend, I pieced some tops for Komforters for Kids, our guild's community outreach program. (Finished quilts are placed in police cars and fire trucks and with CPS, to be given to children in distress.) The fabric was donated and pre-cut. I just sewed it together.
