I shouldn't even say the word "dog". We miss Madelne so much and we want a dog SOOOO bad. But Hunka and I are taking a few trips still and we would feel bad getting one and then putting it n the kennel while we were away. So in Feb. that's what we will be getting. A new doggy and we can't wait. We even think we are going to get two this time. Of course we will be looking at our local pound and we have a Golden Retriever rescue here too so we'll check there. I can hardly wait.
Now for the Dog Days of Summer. ICK!! I am ready for Fall. We had a teaser for two weeks and we had no humidity and the temps were in the 80's. We all thought, is this it? Is Summer gone and we are rolling into Fall?? Nope. The last few days back in the high 90's and the humidity is back. Enough already!!!! Wilster asked me to go to a Cardinals baseball game and I was excited as long as the humidity wasn't a killer. Lucky for both of us that day was 95 or so but no humidity and he had seats in the shade. Yayyy for the shade. It was fun day and we won!!! Even better. This stadium doesn't have a bad seat. No matter how high up you are, the view is still good. We were to the right of Home plate and the view was great.
Here you can sort of see where we were seated. Not bad really and we weren't in that heat and sun! Even better. It was a nice day with Wilster! I love doing things with my boys! We have another game to go to in a couple weeks. GO CARDS!!!
I've been stitching like crazy. Mainly because it's the one thing I can do and not sweat. I've had this pattern for quite awhile so I traced four of the six designs and made them. They are so fast. Mine are going to be little pillows for a bowl.
I finished this rag quilt for Hillarie. My "future" daughter in law. Yes I'm going out on a limb and saying that. Boo might smack me but Hillarie agrees with me I know she does. Anyhoo Boo (hey that rhymes) has this huge rag quilt I made him years ago when he was in high school. He was so tall that I kept going and buying more flannel to make it longer. He would lie on the floor and test it out and then I'd add another couple rows. It doesn't even match in color because we had to keep adding. But Hillarie loves it and Boo then had no rag quilt. So now she has her own. And her's is pink. And her's does match.
Debbie sent me home with four quilt tops to quilt for her. I did these two and still have two to go. I love the colors in this one. She has the complete ones on her blog.
This is the one we made when I was visitng her. Now hers is quilted mine is still a flatty! Not a fatty, a flatty. Haaaaa Yes I used her quilt to take a picture for my website. I knew she wouldn't mind. We didn't eat on it. Well not that she knows anyway. :)
Finally took time to clean my cutting table off. This is the big one I have in the back part of my sewing area just for cutting kits and orders for customers. Now I can actually have room to spread out. It was piled sky high. I found some goodies buried under there.
Look what Hunka did? He got me a little gift. He came home on Friday and I opened the ktichen door to the garage to welcome him. Haaaaaaaaaa well I did!!! And he told me to cover my eyes. He brought this bag in and gave it to me.
This is what was inside. How cute huh??????? The pumpkin is made of tin. I love it! Do ya think Hunka is ready for Fall too? He's the man who said I have enough Halloween and NO MORE. Then look what he brings home. :) I knew he didn't really mean it!
Okie Doke girlies I'm outta here!! Back to the sewing. I'm working on some Halloweenie things. I told you I was ready didn't I? :)
