Blenders. Right. Thank you for all your help. A sale and a coupon later, we have a Kitchenaid (the glass jar one). The reviews are *not as* mixed as most, and since I bought it locally, I will just skedaddle my butt back there if anything leaks or goes wrong. Paul is already a big fan and it has done pretty well with ice, so we'll see how it holds up. I would have also loved a Vitamix or a Blendtec.
I have been sewing, though with very little to show for it, really. There are lots of works in progress. I wrote about these mini bloomers at Bolt and I think you should all make yourself a pair for summer. I'm very happy with my leg elastic modification.

The post Quilt Market True Up coverage is ongoing and we're getting closed to being finished. There is so much that I missed that Kristen is writing about, it's like going all over again (minus the bread pudding). I have been buying quilt weight cottons only when I need them for a certain project, but after I got a good look at Moda's Farmyard line at Bolt yesterday, I had to bring home some trees. And some Japanese Folklore to match.
Did you sign up for Sally and Joke's Packaging 101 workshop? The first one sold out quickly so they are offering a second round at Modern Domestic on July 9th. Sally is a good friend and a master wrapper, plus I can assure you the take home supplies are going to be REALLY good. You will have a great time.
School gets out on Tuesday and I am bracing myself for the transition between doing-something-every-day to you-must-entertain-yourself that will inevitably be difficult for Mr. 7. Mostly, I am readying myself to have a good attitude. I am so lucky to get to spend time with these boys and they deserve the best version of a mother that I can muster. Happily, we are getting in reinforcements at the end of the month for a much anticipated visit. It's going to be like summer camp, minus the outhouses. Plus, they promised they would bring the sun.
