Shop sample

apron is done--and very cute! I love this apron pattern . Will be working every day next week to get ready for a huge sale we're having next Saturday, so today is my last day to get some quilting related things done--like starting on the bindings for three large customer quilts!! If I can get them trimmed and the machine part done, I will be happy. Then in found moments I can stitch a bit by hand. So I don't expect to surface again anytime soon!!

Todays happenings

are on my roof!! We are getting a new one. And of course, it just started to sprinkle!! As long as it stays only sprinkling, we'll be fine. My job is to provide food and drinks--good thing, cuz if they got me up there, they'd have to push me off to get me down--I don't do heights very well. But I'm a champ compared to some people we won't mention. (Right, Becca?!?)

Mama Mia

apron is on its way--no picture until whats-her-face receives it--but it looks very summery!!
On the home front, I had to mow the lawn today--about 1/2 acre, but before you feel too sorry for me, I used the riding mower my sweet DH bought me. When the serving units (also known as sons) moved out, he knew I wouldn't do it other wise and in the 2 weeks he's at work the lawn COULD grow enough to hide all kinds of things!! So I mounted Horatio and away we went!!
