Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

scrapping up

Piecing busily, I have finished another scrappy quilt.  Actually, I have the front and back center of yet another quilt pulled together as well - turquoise, lime and avacado on one side, wheat, brown and cranberry on the other.  They both need borders to bring them up to bed size.  No rush, though.  I have lots of fabric and lots of time.

Tomorrow, I initiate baking frenzy for the Saturday soiree.  Gingersnaps, lemon merengues, angelfood cake.  Friday I make the melonballs, and the guacamole for the BLATs (Bacon, Lettuce, Avocado and Tomato sandwiches) and toast the bread . . . make iced tea, stage the buffet setups, mumble, mumble .. .

Saturday morning, move extra furniture out, set up the buffet,  plate and put out cookies, cake, put together sandwiches, make hot tea, put out iced tea, sparkling cider, melon balls, get chalk and write on garage door, "Come around back  > > >"  Take a deep breath, enjoy the party!

It's supposed to be the hottest day of the year on Saturday.  If we need to, we can just grab everything and move into the house with the air conditioning.  My friends are flexible and fun.

    Oh, in honor of you and in support of all things Roxie, I sprained my ankle last week. Just wanted to join you...

    Oh I love your quilt!

    Have a wonderful day Saturday, as I'm sure everyone will, even if it is going to be the hottest day.

    It sounds yummy and very light and summery. What a lovely end of summer lunch.

    We're scheduled for rain. Again. I keep reminding myself that at least we won't have to worry about drought conditions this year.
