The flags above are on the way out of Great American Ball Park, I just had to take a picture of the American flags at half mast. The ninth inning continuation of Tuesday night's game lasted all of nine minutes, 2 walks, 2 singles, win for the Reds. The Reds won the second game 11 - 2. Remember when I said that if they don't hit one night they'll get lots of hits the next?
I got new bobbins last weekend, isn't it the little things that make us happy? Viking has had these watercolor bobbins for years but I never got any because I usually did my piecing with gray or cream or navy and didn't need many bobbins for that. I usually use prewound NEBS for the quilting. But recently I've been doing quite a few alterations and the threads need to match. So, more threads and new bobbins.
Steph's family is going to a wedding this weekend and the usual craziness of finding a nice dress is compounded for Steph by the fact that she is tall. I was really proud of her fabric store shopping when she got cream and black fabric in just the right knit so I could add on some inches to this pretty dress. The dress looks really classy, not added-on-to in the least. Yay for us!
And, gotta say, I love my serger. Perfect for this kind of thing.
