Both my lack of sewing posts and blog comments for the last two weeks are due to a very welcome escape from the toasty
summer we’re experiencing this year. Our travels took us to Texas where we enjoyed temperatures in the 40-60 degree range. We saw hump back and orca whales; dolphins; eagles; black and grizzly bears; glaciers; moose; caribou; rain (lots and lots of rain); snow-peaked mountains with goats and sheep; harbor seals; and sled dogs in training for the Iditarod. We experienced flying in a float plane (I was white knuckled the whole way), sight seeing from a domed train and tendering to shore because the cruise ship could not tie up at port. Oh, yes, I also managed quick stops at three quilt shops, and am anticipating the arrival of a package from one of them. Alaska
Our bank account is a good deal lighter and our bodies quite a bit heavier.
During the bus ride from the airport Friday, someone checked the local news and reported that our area experienced its 61st 100 degree day this summer with the coming week’s forecast for seven more days of the same.
The bags are unpacked and stowed away. The laundry is almost done. So, I am ready to start sewing again!
