Check of vitals - Yep, I'm still alive!!

I know it has been a while but the summer is sooooo short and I sooo love the summer!! But thought I would check in and let you know what I have been doing!

First off, NEWLYWED LUGGAGE UPDATE~ My nephew's luggage mysteriously showed up on his front doorstep in Jacksonville on Wednesday of the second week of their vacation. Luckily, a neighbor noticed it sitting there and took it in. But alas, Nate was without clothes the entire trip. As for the Bride, Mrs. Brandi did not get her suitcase until this past Friday. It showed up during the night on the doorstep in Florida. She too was without her lingerie for the entire trip. Despite having only three outfits, a bathing suit and a toothbrush, they had a wonderful time.

Of late, I have been working on another postcard exchange. This one I could not resist! The theme was Summertime, my favorite time of the year. Here is a picture of the one I made for the exchange. Arent't those flip flops cute?? I found them in the scrapbooking aisle.

This next picture is of one that I just received! Who doesn't need an extra pair of sunglasses?? This is from Christi in Illinois. I can't wait to receive the rest of them!

I also just received a Surprise package from Christine in England. This was another exchange of fabrics and embellishments and we will now make something with at least one of the items sent to us and return it to the owner! FUN~ Christine sent me several lucious pieces of Liberty of London fabric!! I am working on that project due at the end of August.

I have also been trying to wrangle my scraps into order, cutting and sorting etc. and I am working on some redwork, well actually BROWNWORK, since I am using brown varigated perle cotton. I will keep you in suspense until tomorrow and will post the first block which I finished watching my boys whoop the KC Royals. Go SOX!!!!

My DH and I are super busy with plans just about every weekend. So during the week, I am trying to keep things in order and that leaves very little sewing time but I am trying!!!

Anyway, all is well at McIrish Annie's house. Mr. B and Holly say "MEOW!"

I will post the brownwork tomorrow! Have a quilty day!

The good new is they got their suitcases back - and they'll have stories to tell . . . the stories will be funny, someday *s*
