Very cool, Larissa! 

Went to Brian Head for an arts/crafts festival Saturday.  Went and saw fireworks last night.


I have seen some of that Brian Head agate... it's beautiful and I want some ^-^

Going out to lunch with my partner,  my sister and her husband (Thai food)

Saw the Macy's fireworks last night from my cousin's 20th floor Chelsea terrace.  They were amazing.

Lisa, I watched those my 3rd year of law school.  They were on the Seaport side that year and I watched them from my 11th floor Brooklyn apartment.  Had friends over, opened the windows, stayed in the AC with drinks and snacks, and avoided the crowd on the Promenade.  Was awesome!

Exactly, the perfect experience, good view and no crowd.  I saw them once in the Seaport and once downtown on the west side.  Did not like the crowds.  Monday, there were 4 barges.  I walked one block from home to see the fireworks, against the crowd.  I thought my dog might be trampled.  I have never seen so many people in Chelsea.  I had to wait more than a half hour after the fireworks for the crowd to disperse before I went home.
My camera battery died before the finale.  It was wonderful.

thanks!  :)

This morning I have a crazy headache that seems to be exacerbated by the kids fighting and causing each other to scream.   :-\

That quilt is beautiful!  Have you ever done a picture story of making a quilt?  You know, from fabric to finished?  I wonder how many people realize how much work goes into one!

I finally started this - Thanks so much for the idea, Kim!  Part 1 is up on my blog this morning.

Sandi, this is going to be fun to watch a quilt come together and hopefully cause a few people to stop and think about the work that goes into them.

Today I had to work then pick up a bracelet that sold from a store to shine and ship.  Now, I am going to take the boys to the pool for an hour to try to avoid the 90 plus heat!

Worked at my friends deli this morning trying to help her get some huge orders out and now going to work in the yard for a bit.  The boys (all of them!) are camping with the cub scouts this weekend so I get the evening alone... :evil: what kind of trouble could I get into???

I am very busy procrastinating.  I must clean my apartment before I go to Florida on Monday and I need to bathe and trim my dog before he goes to stay with my nephew.  I have mastered the art of procrastination.

I just finished a new doll, named Yvonne.  She's in my HAF Shop.  Now I can clean up my room so that I can concentrate on my quilt!
