The Sunday Evening Post

What started out to be a great week ended with a upper respiratory ailment. I guess I picked up germs on the grocery cart and here I sit out of breath and still coughing. The good news is, all I had to do all week was design. I really had a good time and designed enough quilts for a year. OK, maybe that's a exaggeration but I did a lot of drawing this week. I lost my notebook last week and never looked back. I now possess a new one. To clarify, that was possess a new book, not me being possessed, even though I'm sure I fall into that category on occasion. I am rearing to go now with some sewing. The bad news is, I don't feel quite right yet so I'll have to wait a little longer to get started.

I'll have two new cross stitch charts out next week so watch for them.

Sarah is recovering nicely and back at home. I've enjoyed the company and after a while, she was actually taking care of me! My garden is slowing down due to excess rain but at least I don't have to water it. We had 89 degrees today and a few more very hot days coming in the future so it should jump start the tomatoes. My Clematis is blooming (purple) and I have a vase of pink Peonies on my kitchen counter. I sure looks pretty around here. Sorry I don't have the energy to go snap some pictures. Maybe tomorrow.

I did promise a drawing this week and I don't want to disappoint. To enter, email me by Saturday midnight with HOT in the title. Include your name and mailing address. I'll choose 2 winners to receive the cross stitch chart or quilt pattern of your choice. If you want, go check out the website and include your choice in your entry email. That will speed things up if you win! Thanks, and have fun looking!


  1. Wow I hope you get over that upper respiratory ailment quickly. Our weather is not so hot here but hopefully it warms up soon. Would love to see some pictures of your gardens and tomatoes once they get going.

  2. I hope you feel better soon. I have been spending some time in my garden too. I would love to be entered in your drawing and I love your new lighthouse candle mat.

  3. Hi hun, I LOVE your designs...I've been on a waiting list for the "home" mat for a few weeks now. LOL, I'd love to be entered in your drawing for the pineapple design hun. Hope your feeling better. I would love to stitch for you if you ever need a model stitcher.
    Hugs, Sharlene
