If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know that I recently celebrated Christmas in July by hosting a giveaway of several handmade items. The winner of the giveaway was Catherine of Quilt Obsession. Please hop on over to her blog to see some truly fabulous quilts and a wide array of fabric related projects. Be sure to check out her beautiful needlebooks with beaded bobbles. They are totally fabulous and leave me drooling every time I see them. If you are a cat lover like me, I know you will enjoy photo's of her beautiful kitties, Smudge and Lester. She's a very good mom and always tries to get a shot or two into every post.
I'm sure you'd be surprised to learn just how long it takes for a package to ship from Hawaii to the eastern time zone of Canada. We're talking at minimum, two weeks! That's difficult to believe especially when a person can physically fly there in a matter of hours. My guess is that it probably has everything to do with customs.
I'm glad that yesterday is over. It really was a very trying day. The solar water heater went in just fine. I was so relieved when the installation guys left. One guy kept breaking into song every 20 minutes or so. I was in the back room of my house and he was in the front in my garage and I could hear him loud and clear. I can only imagine what my neighbors were thinking. Maybe I really don't want to know. LOL
When making large numbers of like items, I take everything in steps to speed up the process. Yesterday was bow making day. I made approximately 300 1-3/8" bows. Whew, I'm so glad that's done!
I hope you're all having a fabulous day. See you tomorrow.
