Pretty soon I'm going to be so boring, you won't even be stopping in to visit anymore and that bothers me. Yet, for some reason, my sewing creativity has gotten up and left me lately. In fact, after one more mini quilt, I think I will pack up my dining room table for awhile and live like a regular person without a constant mess staring at me every time I look that way. At least for the summer!
I did finish the mug rug swap though having gotten a beauty from my partner. The first one is the one I made and the next is the one I received.
Then, naturally, I sent out some envelopes this week and guess who has a loose tooth? Yup…my darling little Audrey! She loved this envelope!
I've been running low on envelopes so I had to draw and color to build up my supply this week. I was surprised at how long it took. I did 20 in 2 days………2 whole days!! Plus I had to put in a stamp order to USPS for (don't fall over) $71.50. Needless to say, I think I'll have enough for awhile.
And then, I got my Amazon order. I'm still into reading like a mad woman and enjoying every minute! The top two are children's books for the older child. Since my niece reads to Audrey every night before bed, I thought she might enjoy a story that continues. Both are good. I read them first this week because they were short and sweet.
And then I read two others with one OUTSTANDING one that you all must read!!! I loved it and it's in this stack. "Goodnight June" by Sarah Jio. I didn't want it to end! It was one of those happy, and delightful reads with just a twist or two to make it interesting and best of all, it only comes in softcover! This is the 2nd book I've read by Sarah Jio and I've liked them both. Then, yesterday, I finished "That Summer" by Lauren Willig. It's a hardcover recent release that seemed to drag on and on for me. It's gotten great reviews on Goodreads.com. but I wonder how? Thankfully, I took that one out from the library. lol
So, that's the news of the day. It's 55 degrees outside here this morning at 9:30 am and overcast. Happy summer, huh? I'm sitting in the house with my hoodie over a short sleeved shirt with all the doors and windows closed wondering if I need to turn on the furnace. Eikes! Hope you are enjoying the sunshine!!! Until next week………happy reading, sewing, or whatever your pleasure!
