August

Can you believe it is August already. Seems like all I've done this summer is mow the grass with all the rain we've had. :shock:
I have managed to continue to sew for charity making tote bags, blankets and clothes and sleepers. DH had cataract surgery 2 weeks ago and will have his other eye operated on this week so I've been interrupted every few hours to put eye drops in. It is worth it as his eyesight has improved so much. He has extreme astigmatism and glasses did nothing but distort what he could see but the lens inserted has helped a great deal. He says it is like seeing the world for the first time as it should be.
Hope everyone is staying cool and dry.

It is very hot and humid here. Have had so many health issues that my sewing is slow. Have lots of unfinished projects. However, yesterday, at our ASG meeting, we made a makeup bag and I finished mine. It was a free PDF pattern from Crafty Gemini. Took 2 fat quarters, a zipper and some fusible interfacing and about an hour or so to make. I am not very good with craft sewing. However, I am pleased with this project. It will go to my teenage niece with a little makeup inside.
