I haven't written in awhile because as you know, from last week's blog post I've been feverishly trying to catch up some projects. I even decided to hold off the newsletter until I felt ready, which took a load off my shoulders. I got the wool applique submission off to the Wool Street Journal. Sorry, you'll have to wait until October to see the finished piece. I finished my "Hearts Abound" wool applique piece and finally finished my "Stars and Flowers" punch needle piece. I have also gotten together a nice selection of hand dyed flosses to offer. In the middle of that we had a very quiet 4th of July. The fireworks here were at 11 pm, so we all decided we didn't want to go. We have officially become old farts. We did have to bring my son in for a tonsillectomy the next morning though so we decided to just have a quite evening. Mom and I did manage to throw together a nice festive 4th meal though....
|A red tablecloth and some flag napkins really make it a holiday meal!|
|Pretty, they look like a firework.|
|My favorite salad......caprese..|
|.....now it's holding my new hand dyed floss. Look for it to be uploaded to the website tomorrow.|

|Jeremy right before his tonsil removal. Boy, he's in a lot of pain right now. I'm glad it's done though, he was sick all the time at school and being so far away I couldn't do anything. Hopefully this will help....|
So, tomorrow I will get the newsletter out which will have still more new goodies, so watch for that in your inbox if you have asked for it. I will also upload it here and at facebook.
Until next time.....
