Both my girls came over last week for Father's Day and we went out to Lucille's Barbecue that night for dinner. There was a two hour wait, which was OK when you are with those you love. It was a bittersweet day, being the first I have spent without John. My girls and I took a selfie that afternoon.
Our temperatures are back up in the 100's this weekend. We did get a bit of cooler temps earlier in the week, in the high 80's and low 90's, which made it somewhat easier for the poor house painter who is painting my house.
I can't say I got a lot finished this week, just odds and ends. I am cutting out some more of the lighthouse blocks for my brother and sister-in-law's lighthouse quilt.
I did finish up this Kathy Schmitz piece I was working on last week.
I also found out what I had done with my previous stitchery, and my in progress washcloth knitting. This is supposed to be a whale. I had to rip some rows out because I forgot where I was at. I think I am on the right track now.
I had a wonderful surprise come in the mail this week. I had visited the Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer Blog a couple of weeks ago, and remarked on what a lovely prayer shawl Patricia was making. She admitted it was for me, and I received it this week.
It is so soft and cuddly, thanks again Patricia, I love it!
This is the scene that confronted me when I was going out to mow the lawn this morning before it got to hot. These two mama turkeys were out walking their 5 babies through my yard, and then decided to go back across the street to the park.
I'll be linking up for Slow Sunday Stitching @Kathy's Quilts. Head on over and see what everyone has been up to.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
