About the only thing that is good in this heat is ice cream, sleeping and sewing! It is so hot outside – the sewing machines are up and running at Cheryl’s house. We had planned my birthday sewing event for this weekend but we have had a few bumps along the way. Brenda informed us that her husband had planned a trip for them and evidentially added a few days on to the beginning and she would not be able to join us. Normally we would have re-scheduled but with fall quickly approaching and our full calendars we decided to carry on with our event. I got to Cheryl’s house Thursday afternoon and setup shop in her sewing area. We impatiently waited for Cathy to arrive. Upon Cathy arrival, she told us that she was NOT feeling well, so she just hung out and visited and she ended up going to be early. The next morning, she was still not feeling well but went into work and later went to the doctor only to be diagnosed with strep throat! Not good! She ended up NOT returning, that was good for her and us, but still not what any of us had wished or what we desired. Sad and pouty face!
Thursday right before I left the house I checked the mail and look what surprise I received in the mail from my niece, Joanna! It is so very cute!!! Thank you so much Joanna, I love the little owl and I really appreciate you thinking of us.
My plan of action – I brought over 3 small projects that only needed an inner boarder and an outer border. I need to finish something! I needed to finish up my Pam Buda Market Day sew along, both sizes and my blue nine patch miniature that I started in May. They were first on the list and thank goodness I was able to finish those!
The plumbers finished venting all the pipe and they ran new water lines to the new bath.
Guess what! The painter painted the front door and it’s screen door and the side door. I was a little nervous about this, even though I’ve always wanted a red door I wasn’t sure how it would look in my craftsman styled house. But I think it will be great! What do you think?
Centerpoint came and moved the gas meter or the line for the meter and David started working on removing the sheetrock in the dining room and he got about one third of that done.
Friday I dragged Cheryl to an estate sale in Pearland and we found a few treasures for the retreat house and then we had to do a drive by and see what was going on at the house. The floor man was there working on the repair of the floor and it looks good.
Since it was just Cheryl and I for sewing we decided to invite the menfolk over for dinner. It was very nice to have them over; we had a wonderful dinner and even decided to invite them back over for dinner Saturday night.
A little progress on the craft room – they have the rebar ready for the pillars, I sure hope they are ready to poor on Monday!
We went back to Cheryl’s and there we worked on our Judy Niemeyer’s Captain’s Wheel pattern. I started working on my 64, “A” units. I love the little section in the middle, it reminds me of a man’s vest and tie!
I am so truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
