Just home from the Post Office mailing all but one of the fabric packages. The last one will be mailed on Monday. Thank you everyone!!! Stopped at the grocery store on my way home for dinner. It's so hot I bought Popsicles. Mr. Creations has a choice of dinner!
Speaking of hot and Popsicles...please remember your wonderful mail carrier. They bring you those fun packages filled with fabric goodness and other surprises. However, I don't suggest you leave it in the mailbox. I fill a disposable cup with ice and a popsicle and put it in my freezer. When I see the mail truck coming down the street I grab the cup and wait for my lovely mail lady.
As this is a totally random post and many of you have kindly asked about Abby...She is now leash-free and able to chase bunnies around the yard. It's so hot chasing may be more of a fast walk right now! And she is allowed down into the coolness of my basement sewing studio to keep me company. So far so good. Time will tell if there is complete recovery or need for further investigating. Abby asked me to give tail wags and doggie kisses to her blog friends.
Lastly, I love Stargazer lilies. They are not only gorgeous but have a spicy sweet aroma. Heady stuff! I also love my Nikon Coolpix S8000, however it's been having issues after 3 years and the extended warranty I purchases is now expired, of course. I sent a letter to Nikon and got a phone call verifying my email address as their tech support would be contacting me. They did. We've have a few back and forth sessions...they ask the questions, I provide the answers. They must not have like my last answer because there has been no further communication. Although I expected no response at all I'm pleasantly surprised they contacted me at all. Now what will the result be?
I take all of my own photos for my pattern covers. Now my camera works when it wants to and I'm in a quandary about what to do -- I think the cost of whatever repair would not be worth it so it's more likely I'll need to buy a new camera. In my letter to Nikon I did express how many times I've recommended this camera. I like the point and shoot because they are easier to "drive." Bigger and more powerful cameras are like asking me to fly a spaceship.
Things should last longer than 3 years. For instance...my daughter is now the owner of her dad's Canon 35 mm camera he bought in 1977. Still works like a charm. Still has the "hippie" camera strap.
Stay cool. Eat popsicles.
