One house down....Only a ton to follow!

Greetings dear friends and blogging buddies!~ We have been having some much needed rain here. Sunday night we had flooding. We didn't take the camera out, wish he would have. It was quite amazing to see one of the parks where only just the top of the swing set was sticking up out of the water. We seen several vehicles stalled from trying to cross water that was too high. We were due to get another storm last night, but nothing happened. Oh well. It is 70 degrees here right now . At this time of the morning here lately it has been almost 80 already so I can live with 70. We are supposed to get the new a/c installed on Thursday and that will help bunches!!
I got block #1 of HoHRH done and the start of block #2. Here is that progress.

My local quilt shop had a terrific sale of 5 fat quarters for $5. I couldn't resist. I was able to pick up a fat quarter of sampler style fabric from BBD. I can't remember what line that was. Anyone remember? Anyway, I am collecting fat quarters for a quilt called Ricky's Heart Warmer. I think the first 4 fabrics will go in that nicely.

Remember this photo from a couple of posts back? I had mentioned that I was going to be sending it to someone special and so I did. I sent this to Shirley. She emailed me right away and told me that she just loved it! She said it was perfect timing too , as her birthday is coming up and it is from the July BBD Stocking booklet. I am so happy you like it Shirley!!

Well , I will run. I have a knitting lesson to instruct this morning so I need to be getting ready for that. Thank you all so much for stopping by and for the comments. They mean a lot. Well, except for those nasty ones for the porn sites, but I can't get the 'trashcan' to show up to get rid of them this morning! I keep dragging my feet about the comment moderation. I need to do that and soon!!

till next time,

don't be a stranger,
