    4th july sewing day for me, what about you?

    Hi everyone, I dont know if I am selfish or what but I feel like sewing on that day. I work 6 days a week, take care of our retail business and deal with 2 teenage children and housework, cooking and no time for me. I guess I'll make it my day, maybe just a little. DiD I say that I live 2 blocks from the beach, Myrtle Beach that it. Its gonna be soooo Hot and crowed. I dont dare go there. A peaceful place like Hunnington state park calls me. Its so nice there. Like to hear what y'all are doing in your sewing on that day. Blessings.

    depends what the idiots in the neighborhood do as far as setting off those (^*^(0 fireworks. I hate the 4th of July and usually, I'm up in the mountains w/ friends, but that wasn't able to happen this year.

    I have no idea what I'll be doing that day but it probably won't be sewing. Hubby will have the day off and will probably want to go visit friends.

    I'd be quilting... if I don't have to work that day! Being in the middle of the week, not much time to do much else

    I will definitely be sewing all day. It is too hot here to go out. I'll be starting a Civil War quilt as I am finishing a quilt today or tomorrow.

    we are both of work that day , so I want to spend some time with DH. The county fair is so close to us, but we never go there, because of the heat and all the people.

    I will be babying my poor poodle, just like I have been for the past few days. I really wish people would save their fireworks for the fourth instead of every single day!!!

    If the kids come over, I'll spend time with them. If not, I'll probably be cutting/sewing and/or watching NetFlix movies. Am seriously considering moving my sewing machine into the house, temporarily. Right now, I sew out in a shed.

    I'm hoping and praying none of our neighbors will shoot fireworks, around here.

    I am planning on sewing that day too. I usually have a get together with our family because we have a pool but I had a baby sprinkle last weekend for our daughter and with spending all the money for food for that, I said I'm not having anything on the 4th. Our oldest son and family are going to the beach and our daughter and sil have to work that day so there is no real reason to have something anyhow. After our super busy week last week, we are ready for a break and a rest!! Happy 4th to all of you!

    It used to bother my dog something horribly!!! I could not leave him alone because he would destroy the house trying to get out. One time talking to my vet, he gave me some tranquilizers - best decision I ever made!!!! They weren't even expensive!!

    The next best thing was when he got old enough and became deaf - that was the best blessing!

    Go talk to your vet about the tranquilizers....

    We're having brunch with the local kids and my grand daughter. No plans for the afternoon or evening. I will probably get some sewing in. DH has some work to do over at the church for a couple of hours. Maybe I will work on my Pineapple blocks


    My newest Grandson, Caleb Austin, was born May 29th. I am now Grandma to 4 precious babies. I am so blessed!!!!

    DH has to work his usual shift (criminals don't care if it's a holiday), so I will probably be sewing on the 4th. It's too hot to be outside and it's cool in the sewing room!

    If I had a dollar for every time I got distracted I wish I had some ice cream.

    The kids are all here today with spouses, grands, and friends of grands, to have a cookout and swimming and will leave out early in the morning for the lake until Thursday. I opted to stay home. Being on a party barge all day is not fun for me like it use to be. DH will go to the lake during part of the days or whatever he plans to do. He doesn't have to go to his job until next Monday. I invited a few of my sewing buddies to come over and sew with me during the week. I wish our town had a celebration or a festival or something. I miss those. My dog doesn't like fireworks either but we'll hear plenty of them all week long in the area. I remember having fun when I was younger doing fireworks so I won't complain like a an old biddy about them now even though I may want to.
    Got fabric?

    The fireworks started last night. We really don`t do any thing special as we always were diary farmers, but now we are
    retired, and hubby helps out the people in the area that are still bailing hay. Once I got to see actual fire works about 25
    years ago (we`er married 54) I loved it, but now I am just happy I don`t have to bail hay in this heat. I just looked and
    the temp here in mid Wisconsin is 95 degrees.

    My town has the fireworks on the 3rd...and they are right in the park in my back yard...so I will be busy Tuesday getting ready for all the company who comes to watch at my house...and then the 4th is a day just for me...to do whatever I want...which hopefully will include some quilting.

    We always went to a Patriotic Pops concert that included a spectacular fireworks display. But the fireworks have been canceled due to the drought, so I think I'll stay home and quilt.

    I will most likely be sewing. We stay home on the weekend of the fourth every year. I'm working on a toddler quilt for a two year great grandson I will soon hopefully get to meet! :-) It's coming out really cute so far!

    My son and his family will probably be coming over for a BBQ, but i will still be quilting..I have hand quilting I am working on that I can do and still visit!! Since I am on oxygen, I can't be out in the heat or cook, so i get to sit, visit and sew!! Actually since going on disability last Oct that is what I do most days..

    I hope to sew some. I sewed some today, first time in forever. Can't wait to work on this quilt again. It is my first and is taking forever. I have no time right now.
