I have no idea who's getting this one but I bet when it's quilted there will be someone who claims it. :)
I packed up my sewing machine and everything for quilting that I brought with me except for my hand stitching today. We finish up this mission trip next Friday and will head home right after breakfast. It's always a bittersweet time and this year more than other times. We've decided to switch the time we come to volunteer at the mission from June and July to February. That means we won't see the "regulars" who come every summer any more. This is the third summer we've worked here and the kids who come have grown up before our eyes - it's so easy to see that when you only see them once a year. We've met some wonderful people and made some good friends and I know that we may not see them again until we meet in Heaven. I'll miss their sweet presence in my life.
It rained again here today. I don't think we've missed more than three or four days having rain since we got here the first of June. Everything here is waterlogged. And at my house in Arkansas the ground is dry and cracking, the grass crackles when you walk on it, and the poor bugs and animals are constantly seeking water. I wish I could send some of this back home.
There's a Christmas Blog Hop beginning Monday - I'm not participating in this one but I'm excited about seeing all the Christmas blocks everyone is creating. For a schedule click on the blog name and it will take you to Lesley's blog, The Cuddle Quilter.
Later in the fall I'm going to be hosting a blog hop - I don't have all the information yet but watch for it! I've never hosted one before so I'm a bit nervous, but I bet it's going to be fun. :)
