Still Raining
And no, I don't mind too much. It's still better than the heat and humidity in Michigan. And the view is so much better. Too bad it didn't hold off today tho as the Chester Garden Club tour was supposed to be today. One of my neighbors, Gail Carroll, had her garden on the tour and, if it's any indication of what the other gardens on the tour are like, it would be well worth the price of the ticket. I will post a picture of her garden when the rain stops (which it's supposed to do tomorrow).

Any way, my younger son, Joey,made it in (finally) on Thursday night/Friday morning. The flights from Newark are NEVER on time but he didn't seem to mind the delays too much. A year ago he would have been freaking out but this year he just used the time to girl watch. He was sorely tempted to skateboard on the concourse at Newark but decided that security might frown on that (see, he IS growing up- some).

So, since the weather is so shitty, I guess I should do some sewing today (curtains) but first, some quilt content.

The wharf





Further up the harbor; the tree in the way is getting trimmed next week as it cannot extend beyond the wall to the left of it nor may it be more than 10' tall as I have a deeded easment for the view







Some quilt content: my quilt from Dijanne Cevaal on the wall; one of my (very) old pieces on the cutting table waiting to be quilted.







A distant shot of "Patsy Ann's Garden"- a piece I started when my mom was being treated for cancer.







Patsy Ann's Garden: I am thinking I need to add one of the "Super Brights" threads from the Superior Thread line to make the flower petals more visible









Detail










Another detail shot

This is the only picture I took last Saturday on my way to pick up the lobsters at Shatford's in Fox Point- my battery went dead.

    Your Chester looks rather like the Chester I visit regularly here in the UK.

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
