Oy! Hope everyone made it through the weekend ok....Pam - how is Lewes? When are you going back - or have you already? Worried about you and Scott - and keeping the prayers going. How about everyone else? Have the Italians thrown up their hands at this point? Rain, earthquake, hurricane, flooding....when do they go back? Lori - how are things at your shore place? We need a bee......how about tomorrow night - Tuesday? Hope you can come.....piece.

Ladies...looks like we may be in for a wild weekend. Pam - hope you are prepared down there in Delaware...do you have emergency supplies....batteries, water, wine, snacks? An earthquake and a hurricane in one week....can the locusts be far behind? Oy! Hope everyone stays safe......might head to ACE hardware tomorrow to see about an emergency generator......I have a quilt gift to finish!!! Take care, girls.....piece.....

Not really...it is actually really nice out there today. After the heavens opening and giving us all the rain in one week that had been saved up all summer...it's finally sunny. Hope everyone survived all the storms with little damage. Pam - how did you make out at the beach? The biggest adventure I had was attending LA's demonstration in the dark! A big question, of course, is how is Gracie doing? Back home and working well? And how is the visit going for the Italians? I guess they haven't used the pool too much?! I believe Mare and the world travelers get back tomorrow. Can't wait to hear details about the trip. I guess the packing for school has begun....good luck to Kerry, Billy and Jimmy as they head into another year. Lois - how is the visit with the grandkids? I know they're headed back soon....give them some hugs from us. I ran into Maureen Hoffman in Joann's on Saturday - she's just as feisty as ever....love that woman. Enjoy this lovely day......I go back to work on Wednesday - so the girls and I are heading down to Cape May for the day tomorrow - get that last walk on the beach, last box of fudge and maybe a sweatshirt for the winter!!! Take care ladies.....piece.

What a nice night is was on Wednesday - and it continued into yesterday - just beautiful. Anyhow....the bee was very pleasant as well. We sat on the porch for a bit. Dolores, Cathy, Consuelo and myself. Caught up on some vacation stories and life. Dolores had a beautiful quilt that she made for her sister's shore house. It's made with Luna Notte from Moda - very sophisticated. The brown and white on the back is just stunning. Cathy shared her red, white and blue star quilt - awesome! She made it with her scraps and it's is terrific.....very colorful. She also had a gift she is working on but it's a surprise - can't wait to hear the recipient's reaction! Consuelo is girding her loins for the Italian arrivals (not really, Bill.....just a metaphor!). Mare is safely in Europe. Lois stopped by on Tuesday - she's looking well. She and George are good - and expecting Kara and her crowd next week on the 18th. I finished a Christmas quilt - made with one jelly roll. Also completed our stick figure family portrait! Hope the rest of you girls are well and enjoying these last weeks of summer......have a nice weekend. Piece.....

That was for you, Consuelo.....welcome back to this humidity. And welcome back to all the Quiltmama travelers....hope you all had a nice, relaxing vacation. It was a nice weather week here - hope it was where you were too. Is the wash done? Getting back in the Havertown routine? How about the non-travelers....how's everything? Anyone sewing? La - good news on your sister. Hope she's feeling ok....and how are you holding up in the heat? I have another container of fabric - I'm happy to host on Wednesday for those who can stop over. Did you notice the ticker on the right? The countdown is on to the first weekend in November...the Evergreen Home reservations have been made.....yay!!! Stay cool today and have a water ice....piece.
|PS - ¡Buen viaje! to Mare and Chris Henderson as they leave for Spain on Tuesday with the youth group. Give the pope a fist bump from the 'Mamas! Have fun.....|
