One Thing Off My List!
The first block done on the Designer Mystery BOM out of Peace on Earth fabric.
I won't be posting these as I do them each month - because if I get mine done before everyone else, then it won't be a mystery for them! LOL. But since Kimberly showed the first block ... well, I was about to pop to start it. Now I just have to wait 3.5 more weeks for the next block!
I'm heading upstairs to read the last ten pages of Pillars of the Earth. I can't believe I was too sleepy to finish it last night. I read this many years ago, and it was a joy to read it again. Thanks, Jane! Next up is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. Another one read many, many years ago. I mentioned once how much I loved that book, and Mar gave me a copy for Christmas. Thank you, Mar! I can't wait to start it.
It was 102 here today! And I had to get out twice in that! I stopped after work to get gasoline. Went to a little small station near the office, and it was the same price as last week, $4.59.9. That was a pleasant surprise. Anyway, I was so hot after pumping the gas that I went back in to get something cold to drink. I spotted the Slurpee machine, and came out with a blue Slurpee. By the time I got to the quilt shop to visit with Jane, I had blue teeth, lips and tongue. But nothing will cool you down faster than a Slurpee, and totally kill your appetite for dinner! LOL
And very very very good news -- I purchased my plane ticket to go to Louisiana in late September!!! I'm getting the whole week off, and I plan to rest, relax and giggle with Don and Gail. They're so much fun to be around. I'm flying into Lafayette this time instead of New Orleans, so that will be closer for them to pick me up. I just hope I make that terminal change connection in Dallas!
Two sips of wine tonight, a real unusual thing for me. I might not make it through the last ten pages of that book again!
