Cheri and I have not disappeared, but we have been incredibly busy. Cheri's day job is keeping her well occupied right now and I had another surgery after the ankle. What I thought might be a 1 week recovery period (Boy was that unrealistic!) is going to be many more. I don't like being slowed down past the point I've determined that it should be! Oh well -- give up the control. Recovery from both is going well and I've got the opportunity to work on learning patience!

I've spent today going through all the fabric and deciding what kind of bag it wants to be. I used to laugh when Cheri said the stones had to tell her what they wanted to be, but I find that it is true. All the years I've worked with fabrics I've actually had the best results when I purchase fabric that speaks to me before I work on a pattern.

It's much cooler here than it has been for several weeks. We had a slow, steady rain all day Saturday and flowers in the yard and the herb garden look so much better than they did.

We are getting so excited to do our fall shows. It is always fun to meet new people and renew friendships that we've made in the past. September will be here before we know it and it will be "on the road again" for us. Please drop by and see us at the Junior League holiday shows in Tulsa, Nashville and Waco.

Take care,
