when a family member is a news story.
Mike (step-dad) is fine. He wasn’t wearing his seat belt but the steering wheel ended up jammed up against the driver’s seat, so this was maybe the 1 out of a 1,000 times that not wearing the seat belt worked out well. He’s still getting a ticket for not wearing the belt. And I imagine a couple of others to keep it company. But like I said, he’s ok. No one else was involved or hurt so it’s all ok in the end. (well maybe it looks like someone will be getting a new fence)
I took today off from stitching. I don’t have anything due until July 30th! Woo hoo! I did pick out my piece for HOE’s Summer House exchange. It’s going to finish up approx 6″ square. Anyone have any brilliant finishing ideas? I found a great pattern, I just have no idea how I’m going to finish it.
I also finished two projects and two books this weekend. Baby quilt & fair & square both have to wait until they’re with their new owners for pictures, but I’m really really happy with how they both turned out. Especially the quilt, I sent it through the washer & dryer – and it’s still in one piece! Go me!With the bonus, my 50 project challenge is now 20% complete.
I’m not too sure what I’m going to do tomorrow. I think I’ll go to Curves, drop off the recycling, clean up, and then head over to the LQS. I promised to show the finished quilt to the gal who helped me pick all the fabrics and I keep saying I’m going to go to their Sit & Stitch. I’m going to bring my second panel of Over The River (which I still haven’t started) and spend at least a hour working on it.
Cross stitch? I don’t know what I want to work on next. Caribbean? Salem Sisters? Summer House exchange? Autumn’s MiraRR? (and yes, I do realize I haven’t worked on ATS the past two Sundays) too… much… choice…. can’t…. function…
