My life has been a bit disorganized lately. With all the changes of peoples schedules around the house I haven't been able to settle in a routine. Hence I have not gotten a lot accomplished. Yesterday I did sew the purple strips together. I also embroidered a quilt square for some friends whose son died suddenly last year. He was 42 and died suddenly of a heart attack. There is a foundation that has something to do with young and middle age people dieing of heart disease and they are making a quilt to promote awareness. I don't remember the name of the group though. I embroidered a rainbow trout jumping out of water in the middle because he loved to fish. Then I embroidered his name in an arch over the top. In an arch underneath I embroidered his birthday and date of death.

This evening I hope to hem suite pants and a suit jacket for a friend's son who is going off to college soon. I hope to embroider on my surprise. I hope to cut out a project. I need to change my sheets and clean my room. I never did finish uploading our trip pictures. Tomorrow afternoon we are going to a cookout and firewords display. Happy Independence Day! Happy belated Canada Day to all my friends up North! (Smile you know who you are!)

Sew Long for Now!

Have fun at the fireworks display. I can usually see some from the house (out the window with the new curtains).

Captain Kitty looks so pretty in your Yorktown pictures! Purple must be her color. :) Those were real nice pictures.

You get some pretty unique sewing orders, it seems. This one, I'm sure will hold a place in your friend's heart forever.
