Good Morning All! It's been a busy last few days! I was getting ready for all the company that Musikfest brings to our house! Musikfest officially starts tonight but they did have a local kick-off last night and I hear it was a great success. Musikfest is a huge festival that takes over downtown Bethlehem for 10 days of music, food, art and fun. This year for the first time they are splitting the venues between the north and south side of the city (the Lehigh River divides the city in half). If you are interested in more info you can go to www.fest.org and of course I will post pictures so that you can see. The downside of over a million people in 10 days is of course the traffic and lost tourists. Yesterday I was trying to get home from PT and of course was already being held up by drivers on their cell phones, and lost. A small price to pay as it is only 10 days and great for out economy. The residents who don't like it just go on vacation!
Yesterday I also got my new glasses. We shall see. They are progressive lenses as it was that or tri-focals. So far they are something I need to get used to but not too bad.
Also yesterday my yellow fabric arrived. You can't really tell from the picture but it has small sparkles in it. I re-started Basket of Memories and I just love it on the yellow! I am so glad a changed the fabric color - it is in memory of my mom and I would never have been happy with the first try. What do you think??
And of course my update on my Quaker.
I am really happy with how this is coming out even though I did the make an error in my measuring of the edges but it will make it.
Denise (Riverside Stitching) and Shari (Shari's Sharings), I and maybe Angela (Indomitable Angela) - will be starting our SAL of the Northwind on the 15th so keep watching for our weekly progress updates!
Well I am off to run my errands and get home before the "festers" get out and about. Have a great day -
Hugs to all. . .
