Up, up they go...........

so remember last year around this time when I had pictures of the hot air balloons.....well, their this morning I work up to Gabby telling me that a balloon is taking off at the end of our driveway. It was so cool. They had the flatten balloon laying in the circle and were starting to inflat it. Then another one came behind it. And then they were all over the neighborhood. It was so awesome. Here are some pictures.

New improved deck....

So Gary decided to shorten up our deck out back. I wasn't sure it look that good but it looks brand new and lovely. He stained it after turning over all the old boards. He added a box on the side railing that I have my herbs in, which I love. And a corner shelving that I put cactus on. Doesn't it all look lovely?

Is fall ever coming?????

I thought moving to SC that our summers would be a little cooler. I want fall weather to come. Hopefully in the next few weeks. And a little rain would be nice too. Anyway..........

Here is all the stuff I got at Yes Yarn's 1 year annivesary sale.

I went a little crazy. See the green purse? It is really a knitting bag. I love it. After the week long sale Margaret went on a 2 week vacation and I ran the shop for her. Here is a picture of some of the people at "Knit at Nite".

There were so many people there. But it was great fun. The last of the people left around 9:30. I was surprised that many people came since it was the night of the beginning of the Olympic's.

Paige brought her spinning wheel and tried to show me how to do it. I broke the yarn 3 times and then gave someone else a chance to try it. I would love to learn how to spin yarn............. Some day.

Here is the new project I am working on. (Thanks to "crazy" Kathleen from the quilt shop). They are little "Blue Star" quilts. You hang them in your front window when a family member goes off to war. So I thought I would make one for Heather, Bill's parents and his sister, and one for us. This is the one Kathleen made. I have them all to the point where all I have to do is quilt and then bind them together. I want to get them done this week as I'm not sure when Bill will be called to go to duty. So off the computer to go finish them. Til next time...........Oh and go check out #1 daughters blog, and see what is happening with the evil dolphins.........haha!!!!
