    Oh so funny Elisabrat. And one more thing, to think they baked bread in this heat, working over a hot stove is not my idea of a nice day, then they worked the gardens, tended kids, did laundry all in this miserably wonderful heat. We are actually cold today, a mere 79 is predicted. I finally get a break from the air conditioning. Yep, I should be down in the warm area.

    Oh don't be a sissy! Get into the Amish spirit and strap on a bonnet to go with those long skirts and petticoats!

    I'll miss you this month Krystyna. The final area of my thumb wound finally closed last Thursday, but all the skin is still tender. Maybe I'll be back in September..hmmm hear the chords to that song from our childhood....by the Happenings...

    I read your post about me Ms Krystyna! LOL! Okay...everyone...listen up... I AM THE GUILTY PERSON WHO DOESN'T LIKE TO SEW WITH SOLIDS AND DIDN'T SIGN UP FOR AUGUST! Whew! Glad I got that off my chest...feels so much better! And if you want another chuckle, go to July's DQ thread and see what I got from Ms Krystyna yesterday in the mail! LOL! I am lurking here though and will admire what you all are making, and join with ya'all in September, assuming the theme won't be sewing with solids? Perhaps you girls can make a believer out of me yet?

    Now, rw, you know you did not "have" to sew in solids. You could have used those tone on tones in a muted state or just used those brights, dipped them in tea dye so they looked old.

    Starshine, I hope you heal soon. That has to be so painful.
    RWQuilts, once you see our lovlies you'll be so sorry you didn't jump in... besides which, you KNOW it's always optional!

    Need to go take the final test for the AARP class. I actually fell dead asleep in the middle of the segment on how to know when you should stop driving. I should be embarrassed, but I'm not. It is soooooo borrrrring!!!!

    And now just to let you know that today has been a very trying day in terms of dealing with people who went off the radar with regard to their quilt obligations. I've never had a day like this yet. I am very close to inviting someone else to enjoy the aggravation.

    Oh if I get so old to have to take another driving course I think I will just pass and let someone else drive me...LOL I wouldn't want to give someone road rage. LOL !!! because I drive to slow...Sometimes I get so mad when an older person pulls out in front of me and goes way slower than I'm driving it drives me nuts. But you have to remember I used to drive a Concrete Mixer Truck and had to many close calls because of this. We can't stop that big truck on a dime especially when it's loaded with concrete...Every time it happen I would hollar STUPID STUPID PEOPLE...I wasn't worried for me I was worried for them! :-(

    There are videos of old geezers who have to be 400 years old complaining about how young people drive too fast. Then there are "exercises" to make sure you are "fit to drive" -- these consist of flexing your ankle and turning your head from side to side. My son thinks these are hilarious and makes a point of "exercising" in front of me before getting into his car to go to work.

    If I didn't get 10% off the skyhigh NYS insurance rates, I can assure you I wouldn't do this awful course. I thought sitting in a classroom for six or seven hours was bad .... this is worse!!! I should have paid the $50 for the express class.
