I'm glad you posted the pictures on QWU. It's nice to share your pics with others on here. Bud is out tonight and I had my friend over for supper. She just left. She worked in her yard all day so was glad for the invitation to sit down to a meal without having to make it.

Hi Jenny, Go onto my page and read "Meet Holly" and see the picture of our new puppy. I have posted other pictures lately that you might like to look at. I will be sending you an email but thought you might like to see my pictures on here.
Hi Jenny, Sitting here listening to the rumble of trucks lined up in front of the house. I'm so sick of traffic being lined up here all day. The new bridge will open in November. Not soon enough for me.
I posted some pictures of me on the float that the guild put in the parade last Sat. Tomorrow I'm going with my cousin to buy a second hand sewing machine (the same as my embroidery machine) She got it for $1200.00. plus she is getting extra feet and designs and the software. I paid $5000.00 and then had to pay another $450.00 for the software and had to buy extra embroidery designs so I thought it was a good deal for her. I know the lady who owns it. Then we are going to the Blueberry Festival in Machias. It's guild day but I'm not going to it. It seems everything happens on guild day but this time I'm going to do something else. Dog is barking to go out so will catch you later.
Hi Jenny, I'm glad you got on QWU and looked at Ashley in her gown. She told me of all the gowns at the ball she liked hers the best because it was different. I got that fabric about two years ago when I went to New York City with the guild. I was always told when I worked in a fabric store never to fold satin, but to roll it on some kind of tube. That fabric has been folded in a bag for two years so I guess it didn't hurt it any lol So much for their theory. I have been trying to clean up my "sewing mess" today. But I'm so tired I'm not gettting much accomplished. I worked so hard all week trying to get that dress made. Making a dress with a lining is like making two dresses. Every time I make something now I take a picture and put it on my page at QWU. I love sharing and looking at other peoples amazing talent. And there is allot of it on this site. When I have nothing to do (which is rare) I look at a lot more pictures. The people on here are such super people and so friendly. ~ Irene
Hi Jenny, I would be pleased if you downloaded my picture to your computer. I couldn't resist getting a picture of that sky. If you have pictures of Primrose on your computer you can get them on here. All you have to do is click on add picture and then browse and your pictures will come up and then you click on the ones you want to post and there on here. Before I got my camera to work on my comp. I had to print my pictures from my camera and then scan them to my comp before I could post them. What a pain. Since Earl fixed my computer I can put them on from my camera.
I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures. ~ Irene
Hi Jenny, I thougt I would let you know I posted some pictures on my page that you can look at when you respond. I love looking at everyones neat projects. You can post any picture on here so I might post one of Brownie so you can get a look at him. lol You should post a picture of the socks you are making and Primrose. I would love to see them . I l love this picture of you and your mum.
I just got done cleaning my oven and fridge. Two jobs I hate. And the two that seem to always need cleaning. I no more then get them cleaned when one of us spills something in them.
Have a nice sleep. lol It's 9:15 here so I know where you are. lol
