We are back from DC with great memories. Congratulations to John and Sharon. There won't be pictures for a couple of reasons. One, I was always a bit late to get the camera in focus, and Two, no one at the Apple Store has a solution yet to my photo uploading problem. We'll keep working on it. The cool kids at the Apple store don't sync well with old, out-of-date PC's and an older out-of-date PC user. I expect that as all the gadgets die here at Chez Simpson - they will be replaced with Apple products that will talk and sync with my iPhone like magic. Until then, it's uncharted territory.
This was waiting for us when we got back. The wovens and tickings from American Banner Rose. These are really nice, people. Woven lovers will, well.... love them.
Wovens go well with Fall and Winter. I anticipate lots of homey, soft quilts made with them. We must use our imagination to think of cool Fall days right now. Thankfully, it is just normally hot right now here in Michigan. Not obscenely hot like it was last weekend. I hope you folks down in Texas and Arizona get some relief soon also. We all swapped "keeping cool" tips at the wedding. We were quite comfortable at our indoor noon reception, but we had sympathy for the folks setting up their afternoon ceremony OUTSIDE at the same country club. I hope that bride and groom were toasted with Gatorade.
What do you do to stay cool? What is your favorite hot weather treat? Just make a comment here about that before midnight, Wednesday the 27th and the American Banner Rose Woven Fat Quarter Bundle™ could be yours.
Speaking of HOT, hope you like this. Poor Tiger Don Kelly is HOT, but not because of weather, because of his teammates.
