Checking in on my Blog
Wow! June went by fast! I can't believe it's already the 6th of July. Where has my summer gone? I have gotten nothing - I repeat, NOTHING done here at home. I went to Arkansas to visit with my mother and sister - and nephews, too. While I was there I gave a trunk show and was supposed to teach a short class, but everyone was more interested in seeing my quilts and visiting with me and we never got around to the class part of the day. It was a lot of fun and I think my mother took some pics with my camera. I will have to dig it out and post them. (if I approve of them) We also did some shop hopping of our own. A store in the area was having a massive sale - owner had passed away and the family was getting rid of everything - so we hit that one first - about 60 yards later we were ready for lunch and another store. My sister hit that one pretty hard and we had lunch at a Mexican food place near that store that was one of two the clerk recommended. I wish I had taken a picture of what my sister and I ended up sharing. It was large, yes, but not too large, what it was - was delicious! I am going to have to make something similar here. If only I could remember everything about it. I am drawing a blank. ARGGGG. Oh well, I will create my own version of something. LOL. Well, got a border to put on the previous string quilt. I finally found the right fabric for it in my collection.
