    Hi all,

    Well it's now a little after 8pm, we had a quiet day relaxing at home. Both my husband and I spent part of the day reading, and then went to Wendy's drive thru and picked up a burger for a quick dinner since we didn't feel like cooking and weren't that hungry.

    Yesterday I ran to my local quilt shop and picked up a bunch of things I ordered from the video chat she did on Facebook Thursday afternoon. For someone who lost her motivation to sew I sure did buy my share! They had some cute things I picked up for my sister's birthday in August as she is a quilter too.

    Probably be another lazy day tomorrow as we have no specific plans or anywhere we have to be. Love those types of days where we can do whatever our heart desires.

    Hope everyone had a good and safe 4th!

    I have not been to a mall in years, hate the crowds and avoid them now as much as possible, so sad an innocent child lost her life. Due to Covid our malls are still closed till they can figure out how to recirculate the air.

    I did build away... and what a construction/de-construction is turned out to be on the "simple" baby quilt. Not sure if it was my lack of concentration (oh look a squirrel) or just out of practice. But I got it done. First attempt at binding, oops didn't move needle over, so instead of seam ripping it I got the rotary cutter out and just cut it off, only lost about inch all around. And then cut more binding and went at it again, even sewed down almost a complete side before I noticed bobbin was empty! Jeeze Louise!. Lens fell out of my glasses... etc.. I won't go on coz it didn't stop there. But like I said... IT IS DONE!

    Happy 4th to all of you in the US. Enjoy your safe safely.

    I made 10 more masks this morning for Rachel and Eli. Then as if we were reading minds, Rachel popped over with a donation to the local fire department in my brother-in-law's memory. What a nice thing to do. Gave her the masks at the same time. We took a little drive to town and dropped the cheque off at my sister-in-law's and stopped for some ice cream. Did a drive through town and got stopped by a friend, waving us in. Had a visit and drink there. And then we were home again. I have been sewing the North Star quilt that Jenny made. Noticed ANOTHER block that was sewed and cut wrong. Man O Man. So I decided to have a nap instead of finding more fabric that I can use in the quilt. I have none left over from the jelly roll.

    My friend Lynda was going to head to Ottawa and pick up a leather belt for the treadle. She will drop it off tomorrow. Someone gave me a link to Bonnie's Quiltville and I ordered tubing form a company. We shall see how it all works.

    Well supper is just about ready, fish and chips, home style.

    Enjoy your July 4th no matter what kind of celebration you do. BUT stay safe.

    Happy Independence Day to the U.S.A. !! No idea what I'm cooking tonight. Still crazy busy taking care of my ex and giving extra attention to my DH. I need to make a shopping list and instead I came to see what everyone here is up to. Have a great day!

    Happy 4th of July everyone! we are just chilling in the house, it is a hot one outside today. Got our bedding out on the line should be dry up quickly. Talked with my sister over the phone, this year is a lot different for the both of us. So glad we can chat and visit over the phone. Nothing much else is planned for the day. Stay well and safe everyone! and enjoy your day!

    Back again & checking today's chat. I've been busy since early this a.m. doing laundry. I decided to strip DH's bed & wash the 3 matt. pads, etc. They are out on the line finishing drying. The blanket is dried; the bedspread just went in the dryer, & a load of sheets is in the washer. Six loads so far. The pillows are airing out in the sun. I still need to vac. the BR & utility room.

    My gr. son & his wife has put in an offer on an older, smaller house in Annapolis. I think they are waiting for the results of the inspection. The house was built in 1955. It's in an older, but nice neighborhood. I hope it works out for them.

    It sounds like most folks are going to have a low-key day. No special foods on the menu here, since DH eats the same foods every day. Boring, but it works for him. Over the years he's developed food allergies & has to be very careful of what he eats.

    The temp. already is 88, so it's heating up out there.

    I guess I got an early fireworks show, Mother Nature must have been inspired. Thunder boomers, lightening flashers and knock out the TV pouring rains for about an hour. Gabby's still shivering and tucked herself up by my hip. It's a wonder I'm not sitting on her!

    Good Morning and Happy 4th.

    Opened curtains this morning and wall of fog... went to kitchen to make coffee, return to room and boom, the outside world is clear and sunny. Must have truly been at the end of the fog burn-off path for it to be gone that quick. Fireworks here and there for a month and last night they added the big boom ones, the ones that sound like a small bomb going off. Sure tonight will be even worse. And like others have mention, it is illegal but nothing is ever done about it.

    I feel need for some fresh air time today so lawn mowing might be on todays list. Might that is !

    Please stay safe everyone!

    Good Morning Everyone,

    Happy 4th to all!! I woke up very early and worked on my Moda Block Head 3 block, probably a mistake because its sorta wonky. My seams are correct I think I must have measured wrong . Its such a small pieced block I will probably start over rather than pick it out.

    Good news, the people that my daughter sent home from work because they said they were sick tested negative! Yesterday, she brought lunch and the kids over and I kept my distance while we ate outside. It was really hard not to grab them and hug them all over.

    I went to Publix yesterday and I will say I have got better about going out and feeling so stressed although it still makes me nervous . I found Lysol wipes which in my book was a win, it was the first time I have even seen them since all this began.

    I hope you all have a wonderful 4th.

    Teresa

    Happy Birthday, America!! A quiet day planned here today. Our son had invited us to the fireworks at the resort he's working at, then called us last night and told us to stay home - he said it's crazy there! That's OK with us - we weren't sure about going anyway due to the crowd. There have been fireworks around for the past few days. DH had a meeting for his ham radio club last night and got home about 100. He walked in the door and said, "Is this the 4th of July?" I said no, and he said, "Then why is everyone shooting off fireworks?" I think we'll just grill some burgers or hot dogs. I have potato salad and pasta salad in the fridge to go with it, and some fresh strawberries. Quiet and laid back day. Not sure what else we might do. It's going to be a hot day here and very humid. I woke up with a headache so I'm kind of easing into my day. Finishing a cup of coffee and then I'll get a shower and see what the day brings.

    Stay safe and cool, however you choose to celebrate today!

    I can't remember the last time I went to the Galleria, Claire. It used to be a nice place to shop. So horrible that an innocent child was killed there. I agree with you that the mall will probably go under, people no longer feel safe when they go there. I haven't heard if the other people who were shot are okay or not. I wonder if they have caught the people that were involved in the shooting.

    Happy July 4th! We'll have a quiet day at home. The Ohio navy has arrived at the lake and there are too many people (local and otherwise) not wearing masks and social distancing to go out much. We watched some nice fireworks from home last night. We could see the show at the local marina and our neighbor also had some nice ones. There will probably be more tonight. It's nice to be able to stay home and see the shows.
