August 1st View

The weeds have taken over the commons area! They are so much taller this year than in previous years. Today is cloudy, cool (in the 60's) and a few light sprinkles. No sewing today as we are meeting up with my Texas friend, Maureen (travel blog here and crafting blog here) and her husband, Alan to tour the Miller Brewery. My family hasn't toured the Brewery yet and if Maureen has her camera~she just may sneak a picture of me and post it on her travel blog! Maureen and I did sew yesterday and I pretty much finished my *super secret* project! Just a little embellishing to go. Thanks to Maureen and her suggestions to make the finishing easier :)

On a quilty note, hop on over to Mama Spark's World blog. Bunny Hill is sponsoring a awesome give away on Mama Spark's blog! I almost DON"T want to share the information because it is THAT COOL! but go ahead, hop on over to Mama's Spark and see for yourself!

I bet you and Maureen enjoyed your time together. It is always fun to sew with friends. Good that she could lend some piecing/quilting advise to move your SS project along.

Always fun to do the tourist-y type things in your own backyard too. I have done the brewery tours in STL and Memphis in the past. Interesting, I thought but the samples were good on a hot day too.
