Three things to be happy about:
(1) flags proudly flying
(2) neighborhood get-togethers
(3) extra pickles on the side
Well, we survived the 4th! Now if I can just make it through the next week and a half, the fireworks will be over... I hope. I have no objection to people shooting off fireworks at a reasonable hour, but in my opinion,12:30 at night is not a reasonable hour. Besides, they're supposed to be illegal in the District.
Sharon's creation and she was kind enough to share it with me - I love it!
I've been saying for two years that I'll make quilts for my great-niece and -nephew (my sister's grandkids)... meanwhile time is passing and they're getting older - they'll be three in October! Where did the time go??
So I'm having to rethink the kind of quilt I intended to make for them since they're older now. I realize I can still make baby-type quilts and it would be okay, but I've decided to go ahead and make a "big-boy" quilt for Jamiyl using this pattern, and African fabrics. His sister will get a Sunbonnet Sue-type quilt ... I think. One thing I do know is, no matter what I do they'll love it - how can they not :o)
Well, that's it for today; try to stay cool, drink lots of water, sew forth and sew on
