Weekend For ME!

I love doing the Star City Cat Fanciers Show on the July 4 weekend every year, but immediately after, my Bernina goes into the shop for some much needed annual maintenance...which allows me some much needed downtime! (No, I won't be taking it too easy...I do have orders to fill from the show, and the scissors, washing machine and iron still work!). I also have to update my list of everyone who's emailed me to be in the drawing for my birthday contest! Don't forget to participate!
Here's an sample of what some of my time will be spent doing this weekend other than my Nana Sadie Rose stuff...The Meezer is checking out two of the books I'll be working on for the Summer Reading Challenge (along with 3 knitting books not shown), and there's the Trekking XXL Sock #1 (finished!) and Sock #2 OTN...along with a dishcloth in the neatest colorway - I swear this makes me think of Neopolitan ice cream! PLUS you can see 2 b'day cards that have already arrived (one is from Big Sis and the other is handmade from one of my best on-line buds Birdsong who also sent along this neat sock yarn (Meilenweit Cotton Fun, Lana Grossa color #338)! Wow it's so CHEERY! This will beat the turning-50 blues easily, and I've never made cotton socks...Thank you so much, Birdsong! You shouldn't have! Really! (But I'm glad you did!)(((((hugs))))) *wink*
I don't think I really need Mommie to play with this pheasant feather...
Nope, I can pick it up myself...
It does have the most delicious flavor...and fits my paws just right...
But just so there's no misunderstanding...this might smell really good, but it's NOT my tearstrip and if Mommie's on the other end of IT, that's still my favorite toy...but this will do nicely in it's place... The Meezer.

That's beautiful yarn! Birdsong has wonderful taste, doesn't she? And the Meezer looks so happy with her pheasant feather.. Relax, put your feet up and enjoy the weekend. You deserve a break even if the scissors, iron & washing machine are in working order! I see you have one of the Mrs. Murphy mysteries by Rita Mae & Sneaky Pie Brown waiting for you - they're all enjoyable reading. {{HUGS}}

Which Bernina do you have? I'm on my third and am missing the one I had before this one (before they started making everything plastic). Enjoy your BREAK from sewing!

Good to know the Meezer hasn't given up on her tearstrip!

Um, I didn't catch that I needed to let you know I was going to participate on the 11th?? Whoops!!

Thanks for the compliments, Sallee and Jane! I just love the photos of the Meezer. I hope you really, truly relaxed, as you deserve it. Our Trekking socks are running neck and neck; let me know as soon as you are finished.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
