 This makes my second attempt  to do a blog tonight. The first one I lost and I don't know who's fault it was, but it is just how the whole day has gone. Anything that could go wrong, did go wrong. When the boss said we were closing early, I was more then ready to go. My computer at work locked up, my office was getting hot, and the asphalt smell was getting more then I wanted to tolerate. They have been several days asphalting our parking lot. The wind was in the south so all of the fumes was blowing into the building. I came home to a microwave that had gone on the fritz, plus it caused my boy's lunch to burn. I have a Panasonic, anybody got any suggestion as to the brand. I am probably going to try to fit that in sometime over the weekend.
Tomorrow we have a t-ball game at about 1 P.M. Whether we go will depend on the temperature at the time. Then it is basically free to do whatever we want until the 4th of July when we are going to our daughters for a picnic supper and fireworks.

I thought I would show you another one that I just finished. It is my stress reliever right at the moment. My order came today for another wedding present  so I will be working on it. I hope they will like it. My niece that got married a little over a year ago says that she thinks of us every time she uses her tea towels. I think that her sister might like something along that line.
It is quiet right at the moment. I wonder if it is to much to hope for that they ran out of fireworks. With the humidity, it means the smoke will hang in the air.I hope you all have a fun safe weekend.

Have you noticed how much Belle pillowcases are going for. One set sold for right at $300. last week and others sold very high to. Their must be a need for them because people are "coming out of the woodwork" to list some. I have many beautiful sets as I collect Belles, but I am not interested in selling any of mine. I have some Belle patterns, if I can find them, that I could send to you if you ever get interested in embroidering some..... May God bless you and your family and take really good care of all of you.

Hugs and Prayers, Pauline
