June is here

Hello.  I know that I haven't blogged for a while.  I am still having photo issues!  I will try something new and see if that works out.  If you actually see photos on the side bar, then you know it all worked and you will have to read the last post to find out what the photos are.  However, if you are lazy and don't want to do that, they are photos of our trip in May to Michigan's Upper Peninsula, UP for short.
Got some sewing done for the MFA.  She loved the Amy Butler Tunic top and fabric flower, and the fabric I chose, also Amy Butler.  The top was lined!  Who does that anymore--really good designers and couture sewers!  Not that I am any of these. 
I spent much of May sick with shingles!  All I can say is: I feel your pain!  If ever you have had this condition, it is just plain painful, and all on one side.  For me it was from mid rib-cage to knee on the left side.  Ouch!  But, PTL, it is gone.  My dental tech told me to throw away the toothbrush I was using and grab a new one, so I have done that.  Oh, MFA bought a 2006 Toyota Solaira, blue with tan top and leather, GPS,  nearly mint condition!  Hey, she is young and single.  Maybe it will be a man-magnet!  She will hate me saying this.   We are fussy, hope it attracts the right one.....

Boy, I sure hope this works. I have been having trouble posting pics! These are photos
of our trip to the UP in May. And here it is June.
I had been sick with, of all things, shingles. If anyone has had them, it is just
horrible pain and on one side only! Thankfully, it was a mild case, lasting about
4 weeks and just a lot of pain! Been busy with sewing projects and am making
2 maternity tops from my new favorite Kwick-Sew pattern and some knit that I had looming around. I made up the Amy Butler pattern and fabric, a tunic, for the MFA and she loved it! One for the Mom. Oh, the MFA has a new car: a blue Solara with tan rag top and leather seats. She called and said it was 100 degrees in Greenville on Monday (the 14th) and too hot to put the top down. This midwesterner feels so sorry for her. All it has been doing is raining!
Well, have got to go and pick berries. Our patch is so sad this year, but we do get a few.
