for today :: September 1, 2010
outside my window. . . sunny, warm . . . typical end of summer weather. . . summer tries to hang on for as long as possible, it seems.
I am thinking. . . of the rest of the designs that I want to complete before market. . . so many things on my list! . . . The rest will have to wait until after Market
from the kitchen. . . cookies. . . lots of cookies! The firemen from our local fire department came out yesterday to replace all the batteries in the smoke detectors (one of the ones up high - about 14 feet - started 'chirping'). . . & I always like to make them cookies to say thanks. This time it's peanut butter cookies & chocolate chippers!
I am wearing. . . the summer 'uniform'. . . shorts & t-shirt. . . no shoes.
I am creating. . . an applique border for a new quilt, & some new wool & stitchery little projects perfect for the sewing room. . . .
I am remembering. . . how much I love to stitch. . .
I am reading. . . 'The Postcard' - by Beverly Lewis. . . & I'm re-reading 'The Mark of the Lion' series by Francine Rivers. . . (a friend is also reading them & so I'm keeping up with all the details. . . I love these books!)
I am hoping . . . that the temperatures cool off a bit more in the mornings so our morning walks won't be so hot!
I am hearing. . . the air conditioning. . . just kicked on.
around the house. . . I'm trying to rotate of 'fall-ish' quilts in. . . in the hopes for autumn!
I am going. . . to try & be a better blogger this week. . .
one of my favorite things. . . watching little birdies in the bird-bath. . . so funny!
a few plans for the rest of the week. . . finishing the border (applique) for this current quilt, & then get the backing for it & two other quilts done & get all three quilts to the precious hands of Nubin, my quilter!
from my picture journal . . .
Girl Sewing in an Interior - Carl Holsoe
. . . this depicts my days lately. . . (no complaining!!) ;o)
Hope you have a wonderful week!
