The Best Bar-B-Que Bar None

DH makes the best pork bbq sandwiches in the world. Notice exhibit one to the right. You
should have stayed Katrina it was really good. The cook and his BFF are really enjoying their dinner as did I.
Worked some more in the quilt room today and had some much enjoyed help from a friend.
Will be going to WA soon to bring the quilting machine home. One of these days I'll have an organized room and can start sewing again. Putting away all your stash is a good cure for buying more material. IT will be a while before I want to buy more. Anyone guessing how long it will be. LOL.
The sunroom is coming along so I'll have pictures of that soon.

Surfacing again for a minute

I know I have been among the missing lately. I have been working at cataloguing and taking pictures of the fabric as I put it on the shelf. It is a slow process but I am making progress. Anything less than a yard has gone into a box to be cut into strips and squares for making scrap quilts. I am starting on my third box. I'm sorting out all the pre-printed tops and panels into another box. I have boxes of polar fleece and flannel. I'm putting things I am no longer interested in using in another box. In a couple of weeks we will probably be heading to WA to get the quilting machine and bring it down. I haven't quilted on it in a year and I miss Gertie. I am so spoiled. My husband, sister-in-law and grandson really did a nice job on the room and I'm really enjoying using it

On a different note we caught this little guy this morning doing his best to get everything from the Hollyhocks.

I have found a knitting group so I am excited about that. There are ladies that knit, crochet and spin in the group. They also get together to die yarn every so often so I'm looking forward to enjoying the group. As soon as I get alittle more organized around here I'll host the group.

We have been enjoying all the sunshine here this summer. The last month we have been having temps in the 85 - 95 degree range and afternoon thunder showers. The cats don't like the thunder. Lucy hides under the bed until they are over. Rosie has finally decided she liked it outside. She goes out about 10:30 in the evening and comes in between 6 - 10 am. She has been catching mice and bringing them to the front door so show them off.

The small Lone Star I discovered when I unpacked a box. Now I just have to decide what to use for a background. Well, I'm off to read awhile before bed. Hopefully I'll have more progress to post soon.
