Hello there Mary and Jeni,
I am busy getting ready for the Quilt show this weekend. We have done lots of organizing and I hope we don't have any problems. It will be exciting to see who wins the raffle quilt, shown above. I sold a lot of tickets. Of course if Dad hadn't bought 5o I would have only sold 60 tickets. However he did buy 50 and so I think there is a good chance that someone I sold a ticket to will win the quilt.
We do sell a lot of tickets but I have about a 15% chance of being the seller of the winning ticket.
The other thing I have been doing is getting Faye's beautiful vintage sewing machines up and running. She is going to have a vintage sewing machine display to coincide with the Quilt show and we need to spiff them up. I have been working there all week and it is a lot of fun. I hope to get some of mine up to the quilt show too.
Other than that we are just watching baseball and watching the rain. We have had about a week of gloomy weather. However it is supposed to get down around 32 degrees tonight so we might have a clear sky and that may very well mean we have frost and that will be the end of the flowers in the garden. It has already been cold enough to stop the morning glories.
I have just finished Potshot on the Spenser series. He is getting better as he ages. I don't know how much longer he can keep this up though. Spenser must be getting really old.
I have started reading an occasional Sunny Randall story as it comes up in order. I am up to 2001 now because they talk about 9/11. I am glad you encouraged me to read them. Parker is a lot of fun.
