Hot and Hazy and Humid...........

Yep... it's no different here than it is everywhere else although I've heard that Minnesota has rain and crops!! yay!!! The foot is just about back to normal.........it's my machine pedal foot so I know when I've been sewing too long ( if there is such a thing) ...... had another medical issue a few weeks ago that's being worked on.......but I've been able to just about empty the WOB pile!! I have 1/2 of one quilt to finish binding and then the pile is empty... I've been trying to finish as I go.... sometimes not too easy! Still working on the knitted fingerless mitts for fall...... I'm up to the thumb on one........lol. I'm trying a cotton/elastic yarn... it's a bit weird to work with but I think the mitts will fit better I made myself a cute little lunch bucket... pics on flickr... and a birthday mat for a friend......that's on flickr also.....not much else has been done since we got back from vacation........ The lighthouses were beautiful!!!! The lake was gorgeous and the weather that week was perfect!!! We quilt shop hopped our way back home... there are some nice stores in wisconsin... but I can't believe the prices! They are about 2.00/yard more than here in Indiana and the novelty prints were as high as 14.00 per yard! I like novelty fabrics... but not that much! I picked up some stuff that was on sale.... their sale prices were normal prices here....and a few patterns... the lunch bucket was one of them... There was just one store that I doubt I'll ever go back to.... I spent a bunch of bucks...... bought a kit for some feedsack type potholders... I got home and the one panel wasn't cut correctly...there was no way to even square it up to be able to use it without cutting off part of the design.... so I emailed them about it... sent a picture of the small panel... only about 5x7 and a copy of my receipt.... not a word......... not even a too bad so sad sorry bout your luck!!!! So as much as I liked the store and their style......ain't gonna go there again!!!! The rest of the stores were great! My checkbook is still recovering! lol Hopefully August will bring a totally healed foot.......and resolution on other issues..........and I can get back into the swing of things.........my sewing machine misses me and I her!! lol There are pics on flickr.... but I haven't finished up the lighthouse pics yet... that's next on my list of stuff I GOTTA do!!! Til next time Lish
