Cannot believe it is August except for the horrid heat that hits you when you open the door. They say the heat is hotter with humidity behind it, and whoever "they" are, are correct. It is hot.

I thought the only way to really be free to make a quilt was to think on your own, but maybe even that is dangerous. I am sure I have seen just about everything somewhere before.
I don't know, maybe I will go hide under a
OH MY GOSH! I AM NUMBER ONE! (tears of joy as I walk down the aisle with roses in my arms and a HUGE crown of rhinestones on my head. And I am trying not to trip on my evening gown as I take the runway one last time!!) Thank you, thank you, thank you!
