I did start quilting my summer quilt using the Eye of the Hurricane quilt top.  I did the little bit show here, and kept having problems with the thread shredding.  I don't know why I did not change my needle after the first time.  I did the little bit up here about three days back and had not touched it till today.  I went down and put a new needle in, a bigger needle, and sewed for an hour and a half or so. this evening.  It is some of the worst quilting I have ever did, but it really doesn't bother me.

The contractor did come and look at the awning Tuesday and Thursday night, someone came worked on it.  Screwed it down good under the eave.  They filled the previously filled holes with caulk.  I think it will be okay, but again it is one of those things if Roger was himself, we would have did it and it would have been done right to begin with.   I never say stuff like this to him...but almost every day he says he wishes the stroke had not happened.

The guttering is left to be done on the garage, and the siding on the north side of the house.  The guttering should be done in about a couple weeks...not sure about the siding.  I will be so relieved to have them all done and be able to forget about them.

It has been hold all week...back up in the 90's, and supposed to be up in the high 80's most of next week.  I am ready for cooler weather.  I am seeing more trees with color.  Just bits of red here and there.  Tiny bits.  We will see a whole tree here and there that is turning yellow.  I just so want it to be a long, slow fall!
