My sweetheart mum was here for a week, and we were busy with summer goodness. Plus I always feel guilty to be on the computer while she's working. The week in review:
Berry picking (I happened on some wild blackberries, and a sweaty cycling cap was the only vessel in the car. Still De-Lish).
Bike riding (Me. New bike!)
Painting (the agonizing sort)
Painting (the fun sort)

Reuben has been misbehavin' a bit with a rouge fever that has wrecked havoc with my sleep schedule for the last couple of days. I did catch a record-setting 2 1/2 hours of sleep in the ER when we were there for most of Sunday night, but that just delayed our care: Mama stopped pushing the call button! Poor boy has been miserable and baking, but playful, too, which has kept us from health-panic. I'll post a video of a great new trick a little later today (assuming I can find our Flip), filmed as we self-entertained in the ER.

I love the print in the picture with the paint samples. And no wonder you recognized the fabric...you have it yourself. I'm thinking I need to get my hands on the tweedle dee or tweedle dumb of that line for the 14
back of the quilt I'm working on.

I clicked on the bike photo to get an enlarged view of the new "whip," but alas, it was not to be. What did you get? jan
