    I couldn't be out enjoying summer because it stayed rainy and cold all weekend. So I finished the bindings on 2 quilts this weekend. Now I can feel better about starting something new. DH made the "knob holders" for me.

    Nice work. I will gladly take the cold rainy weather from you. It is swealtering here in Ky. So hot and humid I can't step outside without feeling sick.

    We had quarter inch hail yesterday, along with pounding rain, on and off, all day. My poor tomato plants.

    When I showed him the little wooden quilt holders the LQS had for sale for $7.99 each, he said "I can make those." So I said do it. All I know is, he took old 2x4s, cut them, shaped them by sanding, then spent about 50 cents apiece on the screw hardware. Then I found half-priced cabinet knobs in the clearance bin. All in all, it's probably breaking even when you consider the time involved, but it makes him feel good. So that's priceless.
