Saturday Musings!


Now I know we Quilters have to be organised with quilted projects for Christmas so we start planning and sewing things from now, but some people just take it too far! 


Christmas in July was first mentioned in a French Opera “Werther” in 1892 in which a group of children are rehearsing a Christmas song in July.  One of the characters says “when you sing Christmas in July, you rush the season” and I cannot agree more!  Especially as Movies 24 here in the UK have been showing for the whole of July Christmas movies!!!!  Now I love Christmas, don’t get me wrong, but even I could not bring myself to watch Christmas movies at this time of year!!!!  #

I love each and every Season, as they all have something to offer and you get to do different things depending upon the weather.  So when people decide to interupt that as with Christmas in July it just doesn’t go!!!!



Girlfriend loved her gifts, especially her bags I made her and she is now on holiday using them!!!  Her Mom has asked if I can make something for her to give to a good friend of hers, as that friend always gives her homemade gifts and Mom wants to give the same!



We have had rain overnight and the temperature has dropped back down to 63°F, much more comfortable.  we are due for rain all day today and tomorrow.  Monday is back to normal summer temperatures and then thunder storms on Tuesday!!!  But not the intensity of Thursday which is such a relief.



The final business week before we go away next weekend, so I am going to do all I can to keep on top of work and home jobs this week, so I don’t get to the weekend feeling frazzled!

Thursday!!!!  Can’t wait!  I can also spend my MoneyBox Savings from the year too.  Also I am going to see:


Yes Jenny Doan is doing a two hour Trunk Show and I got a ticket!!!!  She is also doing a meet and greet afterwards so I am hoping to get some pictures!!!!



Friday will be packing day!  Hopefully I will be all organised and everything will go smoothly!!!  Youngest is away all week at the Head Office for training so at least it will just be DH, Treacle and I.  Although I will still have the shopping to do for him for the following week as he and Treacle are here on their own!!!! 

Must dash now as I have lots of little jobs to do, as well as breakfast to get.

Happy Weekend Everyone.

Hugs, Susie xx

    Our Hallmark Channel has had Christmas movies on for the entire month. I’m loving them! We are so happy that your temps have dropped! We can’t wait to see pictures from the quilt show!

    Yay for cooler weather!!! You pack for a trip all in one day?? When I travel, my suitcase is out at least a week in advance, with everything in there except essentials I use every day. I always seem to remember things I would have forgotten that way! Maybe I would be smart to make a list…but then I would keep adding to the list!!
