REPORTING ON 'HUMP' DAY--

Every body knows that when you work a 5 day work week--then Wednesday is considered --Hump day-and here it is nearly evening and Hump day is nearly over--

But I do need to do a post--cause I bet some of you are wondering where I am or have been???  Cause that's what blog post reader's do--worry about each other when we don't hear from someone for a few days--or--that is what we used to do--things have changed so much here in blog land--that I am not even sure "what is what" these days!!! 

I did get my green flower for the month of May appliqued--

I couldn't remember what shade of greens we were suppose to do the day I pulled the green stash out--so just picked 3 greens I liked and made me a flower!!!

Every evening I do spend alot of time hand quilting on this linen quilt top--

And am happy to say that I am at least 2/3 of the way done--just the top 2 rows now to hand quilt--

And for knitting I finished a pair of socks--

these were knitted with a lighter weigh of yarn and could be worn in the summer--
and then I set up another pair of socks on the needles--

And I soon realized that these 2 cuffs did not match at all for where I started them-so the one on the right side had to be re-done so it looked a bit more like the one on the left!!!!

Also finished another baby sweater--
a real pretty pink one!!!

And I did some personnel sewing--


I am under tall as they say--so even capris are way too long for me--so I finally got these 3 pair shortened so that they look more like capris when I wear them and not 'pants'--

And look--

I finally got the cutting table cleaned off so I can sew--I won't tell you that it got all loaded up again for a couple days this week--had to wrap birthday gifts for my sister June in NY and get that box in the mail--that did get done and is on it's way for a Monday birthday!!!

Today for lunch me and two other residents walked next door to a little eatery called--Grey Bellies!!! Virginia and I had the cinnamon French toast and Cheryl had some kind of sandwich--!!  This is in a small house on main street and they have inside and outside seating--we ate inside to enjoy the air conditioning as it was a bit warm here in Florida today!!!  This place has the best shoestring french fries that are seasoned--and yes, you get them with the French toast too!!!!

OK QUILTERS--ARE YOU DONE WITH THE GARDEN WORK SO YOU CAN GET BACK TO STITCHING????
HUGS, DI
