Having seen the devastation caused by mowing accidents-- three come to mind immediately, that is one place you don't want to have an accident. A cut with sewing scissors is an annoyance in comparison. Just remember your own spit will remove your own blood stains from fabric--an old, old solution that works. The sooner you use the spit the better. 

Happy birthday, Kim and VDGS1. May you both have a wonderful day and even better year.

Mary Alice--Keep that purging on track. Getting that clutter monkey off your back is so enlightening. Being able to share with people who you know is the ultimate way to purge. Are you seeing any possibilities of getting your machines in place and sewing soon? 

Mary Agnes--Yikes, for that interstate snail pace.

On my front I had the table shuffle yesterday. I had plans pretty well formulated that I need DS to build me a sewing table. When the dust settled last night I had better use of all my tables related to computer, Baby sewing machine and puzzle. Amazing what the tables playing musical chairs achieved. I just have to secure a few things in place after fine tuning with use.

Happy Birthday Kim. Did you bring treats to work?

Oh Cora, I think I forgot to say how beautiful that waterfall is. Sounds like you enjoyed the hike.

Foggy here this morning. Maybe it will be a little cooler. This weekend is the hot air balloon festival in our area. DS#1 is on the crew of one of the pilots. 

This afternoon is quilt club. We should be getting the last of the instructions for the current quilt along. I have the blocks ready - it's that b/w/grey top. I found some neat fabric for the border, at least I think it will work.

Welcome home Mary Agnes. Sounds like you had a great vacation until the traffic woes. Hope you and Anne can connect up so you can get that lasagne.

Thel, that's a tough decision. Blessings on them.

Durn those scissors. Sounds like they need a good talking to, Froggie. BTW, I get to think of you every evening when the little frog comes to my patio door. It's a little peeper frog and is usually stuck on the glass about eye level. He/she must be eating lots of bugs because there is quite a lot of p--p evident. Other than that , it's really cute.

OK, just let me know if you want me to stitch an angel for you, Thel. It must be tough on them and you, whatever their decision. Good bye, Butter Cup, it was fun knowing you. 

We are getting rain again, you can have it, Mary. It's rained almost all week, and more is expected. When it stops, our grass will be very deep, and it will be muggy. 

~Hopppy Birthday, Kim~ You share your day with DGS1. He is 19 today, I bet that's about how old you are too. I crack me up. We are going to a restaurant for lunch today, haven't been to this one before. 

Good idea, MaryAgnes. Why didn't I think of that? I will try to get out of mowing that way. 

I better get hopppin', I have a lot I need to do before lunch. 

~Joyful Hopppy Quilting Time~

Good Morning.  It was raining when I took Chou out this a.m.  He was not happy.

Have a wonderful birthday, Kim.

I saw a Tewksbury sign on the road, Mary. Now was it Rte 90 or 84 or one of the others? 

Please be careful, Froggie.  Blood stains. If you're going to cut yourself do it outside while you mow the lawn.

Happy Birthday Kim!

Good morning from a rainy Long Island. We need the rain so bad that it is a very welcome site.

I think Franklin is where I visited the Stitchery store years ago when I went to Massachusetts with my friend to visit with some of her family.

I'm happy to hear that your niece is waiting to decide what to do. I agree that sometimes the tests are wrong or things are not quite as bad as they lead you to believe, and as long as they are at peace with what they decide it will work out.

Well off to work and by the way, today is my birthday.

Good Morning from hot & humid Tewksbury, dew point mid70s.  Suppose to get some rain this morning but once again my area is only expected to get about .25".  2-3" predicted for south of Boston, Cape and the Islands.  Seems every storm that comes thru goes either north or south of me.  Maybe next time???

You went thru the White Mountains National Forest Mary Agnes.  Beautiful country.  Years age driving that road had a moose decide to cross the road. I was able to brake in time but those guys are BIG and come out of the woods pretty quick.  Once I got my heart settled back in my chest we were able to keep on driving!  LOL.

Thel, I am happy to hear that the kids are waiting. You can't limit God. I have seen too many miracles in my lifetime. Doctors have had to eat their words on more than one occasion. And doctors can also be wrong. If they trust God's leading they will make the right decision. And, the age old line, when in doubt, wait comes to mind. May you all be surrounded by His love, peace and comfort. 

Froggie, you have some scissors that sound like they need to be put in time out. Shame on them for misbehaving! They should know better by now. Bet you emb is really neat though. 

Wow Mary Alice , you have made some serious progress on cleaning out. Good for you. And you've made others happy as well. Bet you'll be happy when finished. Way to go.

Mary Agnes, good to hear you enjoyed your trip. Too bad the weather is so hot though. And the traffic sounds horrendous. Makes a person want to stay home when it's like that. Good to have you back.

Cora, beautiful waterfall. Thanks for sharing your picture. Just what was needed today.

Here is the one that instantly catches my eye at that sight, if the yellow was pink. 

Praying Angel

Comment by Thel in Mid-MO 11 hours ago

Sounds like you have possessed scissors Froggie.  BAD scissors, stop that. 

I will look at that library Froggie.  Thank you so much.  I am so tired of having a broken heart.  Right now my niece and hubby have decided not to terminate yet, to adjust and make a bigger plan.  Baby Cadynce is thriving inside her even with the negative prognosis. 

Butter cup will be on transport tomorrow afternoon to a new home.  She is a great little girl.
