I didn't realize that it has been more than 2 months since I posted.
I haven't done much tatting but my wrist is pretty well healed and I should be able to do more now this fall. or sock knitting wool yarn doesn't seem to be as easy to work with in the heat, this summer. I have done some sewing for our Priest and have more to do.
Aug 3 Farmguy and I headed to Rochester MN to Mayo Clinic. It is a 6 hr drive for us. well, that includes a couple stops.
He had a major surgery that involved 2 seperate surgical teams. He got one problem fixed - the bladder - and that is good, but they were unable to reverse the colostomy. He is not happy about that, but nothing we can do, he just needs to get used to it for the rest of his life. We have a follow up apt back at Mayo the end of Sept. He is healing as well as can be expected, just not a happy person about how things turned out.
I have in the past spent 4 days over the Labor Day Weekend at Rollag MN participating on Western Minnesota Steam Threshers Reunion. (http://www.rollag.com). But I will not be able to this year. I have spent those 4 days tatting and demonstrating and teaching tatting. This year I was going to add my sock machine as well.
The garden is doing well, I should be canning tomatoes and freezing corn. The chickens are good. I actually hatched 30 chicks in an incubator this summer, something I hadn't tried successfully before. They are growing well.
This has been my summer.
Well, I hope all of you have had a wonderful summer and that fall will be just as good for you.
