Time to get blogging!!

Wow, it has been a while since I posted...Shame on me!!

I had 4 evergreens cut down this summer! They were so overgrown, my house # could not be seen from the street!! Now that the trees are down, I love the way my house looks, but I can't spend any time in the living room after 2:00pm...The room is like a hot box. Unbelievable!!

So what have I been doing this summer...lets see...I made two purple jackets for a Minister and his wife for their 7th anniversary of the Church they founded. Pastor Jeffrey has asked me to make another jacket, this one black for a Wedding he is officiating at, on the 24th!! I can't start that until the 19th, because I am busy getting ready for a Baby Shower that my daughter and I are hosting for my daughter-in-law and son, Jessica and Peter!! That is on the 18th!! I have been working on a Sweets Table that will be the dessert! I have finished Chocolate covered cherries, and the famous Buckeyes, which are peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate. I still have mini cream puffs with vanilla pudding in the center, nut cups, mini carrot cake muffins, raspberry bars, and brownies to go. This little bundle of joy is due on Halloween!!! A friend of mine and fellow apron swapper, made one of the party favors that I am giving to everyone that comes to the shower! Check out her blog at: Sewmuch2luv.blogspot.com

I finished the re-upholstering of my Wingback chair and couch today! Wow does that feel good getting that done!! It has been so hot here in Illinois, that not much work got done in my gardens! I did a poor job keeping up with the weeding. I have however made a point of edging my grass each time the lawn was mowed.

I have participated in several apron swaps this year, and am still waiting on receiving the last one...should have been here a long time ago. I made a memory quilt for my niece out of her sports T-shirts to take to college!! Wish I had taken a picture of that one...it turned out so good! I will be making another one for her sister when things settle down a little.
