How it used to be....

Our chance for rain passed us by yesterday...I heard drops hit the awning and I do mean just a few drops. I did not see any hit the sidewalk. Last night our weatherman told that we had had 13 days of temps 100º and over....and that since May 9th we had not had any significant rain....just scattered showers.

With that in mind I went back through some of my photos just to see if memories of green in July were a reality.
I found these, among others taken in July of 2008....hard to imagine things this green again.
It did not reach 100º yesterday...the highest I seen was 98º that is an improvement.
I cannot believe how slow I am in making Lorelei's dress. I didn't work on it day before yesterday but worked 3 or 4 or 5 hours on it yesterday evening/night. It was not dark when I started and it was close to 11:00 when I cam up from the basement. I am trying to be really careful. It is one that uses bias tape to finish the neck and armholes. I am not sure I like using it. I guess I will wait till after it is washed to see how it feels before I make final judgement.

On the other hand, I did drag out my serger to finish the edges. I really don't have far to go...I need to turn the bias tape to the inside and sew it down then hem and it is finished. It really is least in my opinion. I think though it will be next year before it really fits her. But she is growing so much that I could be wrong.
