Tomorrow we take my dear MIL back to the airport to fly home. We have had a good visit, played lots of gin rummy and cribbage (sp?) . I haven't been sewing much as I have been spending the time with her.
She mentioned the other day that she wanted to stop and buy a u shaped pillow for her neck on the airplane for the way home. Well, I just drew out a u shape and made her one. It seems kind of big, but she says it works great. Now she matches my wallhanging!
I am so excited about going to the quilt festival on Sept. 6 in Valdez, AK. I am taking a two day class from Judy Niemeyer www.quiltworx.com and two classes from Billie Lauder www.easymade.com . I have everything ready to go.
My kiddos go to school this week. I know they will have such fun. DD is in third grade and DS in Kindergarten. I will miss them tho. I suppose I will get lots of sewing done.
The rain has finally stopped and it has been nice for two days. The temp is about 50 during the day and tonight is supposed to be 29. A few nights ago, during a break in the clouds, we saw the northern lights. Very odd for August, usually we don't see them until Sept. And it is starting to get noticably dark at night, starting about 9:30. The fireweed has bloomed to the top, which signals the end of summer and is going to seed. And the leaves are starting to go yellow. Snow is predicted for Sept. 16 this year. I will keep you posted!
