Weather Update and Other Things

I really want to post a sunny picture of my Amy Butler quilt, which is finished, from this post but I keep waiting for a sunny day for a nice picture and there have been none. The weatherman on last night's news had some statistics for us. June 2009 had no days in the 80's-None, Nada, Zero! It has rained all but a handful of days and guess what-it's July 1st and it's raining!! So pictures are on hold. I think I have mushrooms growing out of my ankles from the moisture. My gardens have mostly rotted from too much moisture but there should be good juicy apples coming up this fall. Maybe it will stop raining by then. Appologies to those of you suffering from extreme heat.

On another note, Kim from Magnolia Bay Quilts has bestowed upon me the Honest Scrap award in which I need to tell you 10 things about myself. I've done this many times before so it's going to be hard but here I go with some really random things.
1-I hate lima beans
2-I pretty much love all other foods
3-My mother was a sewing teacher
4-I went to kindergarten with my husband
5-I like tea over coffee (don't tell Pam)
6-I don't especially like Martha Stewart
7-I grew up in Massachusetts
8-I have an artificial knee (I love it too!)
9-I have two grown kids-a daughter who is 28 and a son who is 31
10-My second grandchild, another grandson, is due any minute

So that's it for now. I am choosing not to tag 10 people since I have done this before and don't want to make 10 other people mad at me! Hopefully my next post will be a sunny one!


  1. Glad to hear from you! I hope the birth of your secong grandson will be a easy one and everything is ok with the boy. This is going to be a busy time. I would love to take so of your rain. It has been hot a
    nd dry here. Fern

  2. Nice to see you aren't "tagging" people and I too hate lima beans...yuck! Can't wait to see pictures of your quilt and the new baby! Hope everyone does well!

  3. I enjoyed your random! You are lucky to be having a second grandson.

  4. Hope the rain lets up soon. Will it really make mushy apples? :) I should have looked at my Blogger list first -- I just sent you an e-mail. Can't wait to see your "sunny" pictures!

  5. *ugh* Lima beans . . . . wouldn't it be great if they became extinct *s*

  6. I guess I am the only one who likes lima beans... Chris would you please go to my blog and push my button, to become a follower of the blog? You really don't have to follow it tho. Just the button. OK?

  7. Hilariously fun. Here's a couple that made me smile **I went to kindergarten with my husband and **I have an artificial knee (I love it too!) ~ you're funny!

  8. I'm so sorry about your weather situation. Its been hot and I would glady switch with you.


I pray that risen from the dead,
In glory I will stand,
A crown perhaps upon my head,
And a needle in my hand.
