Summer Fun

for those of you who haven't found them yet, there is a wonderful blog at Presser Foot by two sisters who are advancing the art of sewing by using their blog as an ongoing tutorial. they pick a pattern monthly, make fabric suggestions, then walk the reader through the steps, and missteps, that go into making the pattern. They are having a giveaway in august for a darling maxi dress pattern and retro fabric, go see them and enjoy.

Today I'm going with Vera to a wine and cheese fundraiser at Strathmore Music Center. I'm not sure why, since I don't really like wine or cheese. I think she really wanted to go, but not alone. So, we'll go and see how they try to convince us to spend money.

The doctor was very happy with my progress and has released me to go back to work on the 24th. i think I can spend the week working up to staying awake all day, etc. so I'm not so exhausted when I go back.

We'll be taking Sarah up to school on the second, it's hard to believe she's a senior. I can't even think about the logistics of graduation yet.

lou and I have decided that the best help we can be to Si and Peg is to arrange to go into Cleveland once a month and help/hang out with them so that they can get everything in order for Florida. Lou is convinced it's something his father really needs to do, and arranging help for Peg will be something we work on in the next few months.
