moving along

I am trying to get all my lose ends tied up before I leave for Sew Fest in 19 days.  I have some personal projects that I'd like to have done as well as the things I need to have ready for Sew Fest.  And..... I will also be shipping a box ahead of time (can only take so much on a plane!)  I am planning on working on my DH's veteran's quilt.  He has ohhed and ahhed over the ones I've made for several years and I think it's time  he get his.  I will give it to him for his birthday in August.  I have the embroidery to get done, I'll need to get the borders cut and then I'll put everything together in a kit to assemble.  I will quilt it when I get back ..... I'll have to figure out a way to get him out of the house for a day!
Our monsoon rains have finally started here in SE Arizona and we so need them!  Once we get our rains, the desert greens up so pretty.  This is one of my favorite times to get out and ride my ATV but because of the cataract surgery, I'm sort of 'grounded' until the end of Aug..... ah such is life!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer.

Hi Katie - I have been trying to get caught up on a bunch of stuff myself lately. I am sooooo far behind in my emails I hate to think - but I digress. I am also working on a "surprise" quilt for my husband - and trying to work on it is really tough when he's home - BUT - I have tomorrow available because he has to report for JURY DUTY in the morning. Is it wrong to hope he gets picked?????? ^..^

I'm hoping those rains make their way over to Texas, where we're STILL suffering from drought! Enjoy the Sew Fest!
