Whew, the last Thursday in July! That means it is probably time to start Christmas quilt sewing, right?
There are two Christmas quilts in this pile. The binding is already machine stitched on each and just needs to be hand stitched down.
So it turns out we needed a new refrigerator. Ours lasted 14 years. I guess these days that is pretty good. The sad thing is that we spend all the money to get a new one and it will look just like the old one.
See what I mean? When I spend that much money it's nice to have something noticeably different. Does anyone else feel that way?
I got a new battery-powered alarm clock. The display also has date and year. And temperature. It came factory set to centigrade. These were the instructions to switch it to fahrenheit.
According to the tone/day/temperature knob, temperature and degree of Chinese type conversion functions.
I would like to have a quilting retreat here, the Nature's Inn B&B about an hour from Fresno.
Friends are coming from Minnesota the beginning of September. We will meet them in San Francisco. So we bought tickets to Beach Blanket Babylon? Have you heard of it? Have you seen a performance? It's so iconic San Francisco, dating back to the 1970s. It's a musical parody on the day's headlines. There is a basic storyline, but each day's performance is different based on what is current in the news. See what I mean?
So much fun and SO funny. And then there is this. The hats!
Ampersand. One of the new businesses in town and so delicious.
Amazing deals. What? Maybe if they included free shipping. Ha!
My friend, Michelle, posted this on Instagram. So the back story on this. We had a Keurig machine at our Gruber's quilting retreat. I had never used one before. Somehow my cup got overfilled...and she took a picture. That's what friends are for.
