At the lake

Although I don't always have time to make something, I seem to have time to surf the web to find things to make.  Anyone else have that problem pleasure?  One of my favorite places to shop is Etsy.  You're no doubt familiar with it.  I have a (almost empty) shop on Etsy.  [Note to self:  MAKE SOME THINGS TO SELL!!]

I came across this shop and have ordered a few things.  They have a great selection of Japanese fabric and pattern books.  Yes, the books are written in Japanese, but if you know anything about sewing, you can pretty much figure out how to make the items in the book.  Just use some common sense and a ruler that has centimeters on it.  :-)  The books that I have are loaded with great illustrations which really come in handy.  And the photography is first class. 

Nate finished his first week of Band Camp and we're ready for a weekend at the lake.  It was really hot this week.  And we are behind on so many things.  Getting ready to go on vacation is a major deal.  And getting back from vacation is tough too.  We are very thankful for neighbors who kept the flowers watered and the grass cut.

School starts in just a few weeks.  The boys go back on August 17th.  I hate it.   Summers are just to short and it makes me sad to look at then calendar and see that July is pretty much over.  Seems like when I was a kid, the summer lasted forever.  I guess it's true: the older you get, the faster time goes.  Okay, enough of the sadness. It's Friday and I'm going to make the most of it.

Hope you have a great weekend.

P.S.  Sorry for the rambling....

I am the same way. I have time to be inspired, to get great ideas.
It is the follow through I can't find time for.
