I was a little productive this past weekend

So I had the house to myself all day this past Saturday and planned on doing lots of sewing. I wanted to work on my red and white quilt and get caught back up with the rest of the gang. I am on number 7 and last Monday they completed number 13. Then I wanted to try out my new sewing foot for quilting that I bought a month or so ago and just practice with it. But I did not do any of those things.

Instead I slept late til about 9:30 am, took my shower and went up to the art studio on the computer. I browsed some blogs and then I started and finished another pair of loungy pants. This time from some vintage sheets that I got my girlfriends lake house the weekend before. Now I need to make her a pair as that was the only way she would give me the sheets. They were fun to make except for the few mistakes I made that I had to rip out some stitches and redo. And so comfy!!

Then one Sunday we went to the lake near our house with my sister and her family. Here is a picture of one of my favorite nephews having a blast. He turned 7 this year and does not have to wear a life jacket unless he is in the water now. He was loving it!! Of course I would prefer that he wears it all the time, makes me feel better about it. So we let him take it off for a little while.

That is it for now. Sorry about not blogging as much as before, but summer has been so busy and I am enjoying it. Before I know it, it will be fall again and I will have to be indoors more than I like. I hope everyone else is enjoying their summer as well.

I have been tagged...

by psychedelic armadillo for 5 things you did not know about me. I have never been tagged so this is a little exciting, my first time WHO HOO!! Okay here goes:

1. My dog has a bladder problem, meaning she goes pee on the living room carpet several times a week. She is almost 15 years old, so I cut her some slack, but it means that I have to shampoo the carpet (in the same spot) once a week sometimes more. UGH!!

2. I am menopausal and have several hot flashes a day which makes me irritable and cranky sometimes or if you were to ask my family they would say all the time.

3. I bought the reusuable bags at the grocery store but most of the time forget to bring them to the store when I go. One time I brought them and left them in the truck. Go figure!

4. I smoke cigarettes and think I want to quit but have never tried yet.

5. Hmmm, what else? I don't like to cook and am a picky eater.

There you go five things you were just dying to know about me. That didn't hurt at all for my first time.

So how is your summer going so far? Apparently you would think that I have been super busy since I have not been blogging lately, right? WRONG! I have not been doing too much, being pretty lazy really.

I can not even go in the studio and sew since the stupid window unit a/c went out about three weeks ago. Yep, I used it maybe twice and now it is out. Hubby needs to get up there and fix it but he has been working alot also so I hate to whine at him to fix it when he is home.

Anyways, just popping in real quick to say HeeYYY! and I will be back later with more post. Enjoy your summer!
