    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.

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

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.

    It sure is. Perfect to stay inside and make a quilt.

    It is raining, raining, rainning all the way across South Dakota. And I sat in the rain all weekend watching soccer at our DGS tournament on the other side of the state.

    Good job on getting some stuff done.

    Hot, humid, sticky here, with a broken air conditioner. Got a call out to the repair guy. I keep telling myself it is good for me. I still don't like it!

    I'm located south of Colorado Springs. I think all of Colorado was wet and chilly this weekend. Good for quilting, bad for motorcycle riding.

    I spent the weekend indoors sewing too.... but the weather was sunny and warm here. Just goes to show that no matter what the weather does, someone somewhere will use it as an excuse to sew (-:

    It's still cold today. I got some piecing done this weekend because of the rainy and cold weather. It's supposed to get into the high 80's tomorrow and stay for the rest of the week. We are not used to this humidity here. Come on dry weather!!!

    Kasmitty1, your quilts are beautiful! I'm in the Denver area (Lakewood to be exact) and we had rain off and on all weekend. It's still overcast and chilly. Instead of staying in and sewing, I babysat all Saturday and helped my son move yesterday.
