Mid August - Summer Heat
Oh dear - I hate to complain about the weather and I won't say anything - except it's hot and humid and miserable!
Busy week here with appointments - it seems to be the time of year to make sure bodies are running as smoothly as possible! And they are! I do have to go have a picture of "the girls" taken the end of the week.
The kids are doing fine - Nate is back to work - six days a week, 12 hour days! Mark is putting in his usual time. No updates on the other two so am assuming all's well there!
I did a Facebook Page for myself a few weeks ago - at first I found it to be a bit aggravating. But the past week I've heard from several former students, two are daughters of one of the principals I worked with. Such a delight to see how they've become young ladies. Another gal I had in a Sunday School class also contacted me - she's in Las Vegas - I think she teaches school. So I am enjoying it after all.
Thursday Chet and I went to Rushville to pick up two quilts from the long arm quitter gal! Friday night I sewed bindings to the front of both of them - will wait for cooler temps to stitch binding to the backs. Even with the air on it's too warm to have a quilt in your lap. Saturday morning I put together the blocks I showed last week. This is a picture of a fourth of the quilt top. It has a kind of soft, pastel look!
Next I'd like to do some table runners using fall colors and maybe something Christmas like. I wanted to do some embroidered angels, doves, snowflakes and stars today but have no water soluble stabilizer in the house. Guess I need to start making lists for my quilt store shopping, too.
Chet's home and ready for lunch - till next week - bye now. Have a good week.
