June Recap 2014

I am happy to report that the Thurlows fit wonderfully now and are coming along perfectly :D  I just have the waistband, belt loops, and cuffs to finish.  I'm shooting for tomorrow afternoon.  It has been an interesting couple of days over here.  Part of Sunday was spent in Urgent Care because hubs put a rusty nail through his foot. :(   He is feeling a bit better today but still has a sore foot and a sore arm (from the tetanus shot). Last night I needed to get to bed early to take my mom to the airport at 6am, but Mr. T had other plans for me by projectile vomiting all over the living room at 2am. Oh the joys.

However, today  has been one of the best days EVER because my flat of strawberries came in :D  8 quarts! (though I wish I had gotten 16 now).  I will be trying my hand at canning for the first time this year - wish me luck!  Anyway I've been hopping and dancing around the house singing a made up song about strawberries being heaven on Earth and filling myself with them.  (As someone with major medical issues and major food sensitivities, I'm so glad I can still eat strawberries painlessly!)

So on to the June Round-up. Woah, June is over? It went too fast.

3 tanks, 1 undie, 1 skirt, and 1 swimsuit.  Full speed ahead to July :)  Which reminds me, I need to get a list made for the kids school wardrobe needs.

June Totals:
(stash is anything purchased before this year)
Stash used: 3 yards
Fabric Out: 4.5 yards
Fabric In: 24.25

  1. I'm sorry to hear about the sickness. I find that whenever I need to get up early something inevitably happens. As you say, it's the joy of family life. I love strawberries as well, there are always some in our fridge at this time of year. Looking forward to the finished Thurlows!

    1. Thanks Philippa! That certainly is the way it goes for me. I have also found that I'm very dizzy and disoriented if I don't get a full 7-8 hours of sleep. I got to nap when I came home though, so I was good :D

  2. So sorry to hear about the trip to the hospital and other illness. Boy, those strawberries look delicious! I have never canned before and would love to learn how, but I want someone in my kitchen to teach me. I have read online, BUT, I think I need some handholding. Maybe I will get up the nerve to learn on my own one day.

    1. I am very nervous about canning, myself. I have had a few unpleasant instances with glass in the past so I'm a bit freaked out about the pressure canner and exploding glass! LOL. I hope you try someday, and I'll let you know how it goes for me :D

  3. Mmmmm, I wish there were smell-o-vision and taste-o-vision! And I hope you shared them! ;-) Sounds like a rough few days at your house - I hope everyone is on the mend now :-)

    1. hahaha, thanks Gail! I sometimes wish the same :) We are all better now and have spent some lovely days out in gorgeous weather. The 4th of July was well for us.

  4. Yum! Strawberries are probably my favorite fruit. I hope everyone is on the mend!

    1. Mine too :D I love most fruits, though. Thanks Cindy! (and we are all well again, thankfully!)
