Why I Love Summer
Summer days are AWESOME for the public library (craft books about stamping and stenciling, mini quilt projects, modern quilting defined PLUS a novel by Shirley Jackson....I get a lot of pleasure from her dark and upsetting fiction--and she was born in the neighboring city of Burlingame which she implicitly castigates in her short story, "The Lottery"). AND I bought the Alabama Stitch Book for the bargain price of $15 from the Friends of San Mateo Public Library--reference for how to sew her appliquéd skirts. AND I put up tomatoes, but we still have a bowl of 'em for snacking and BLTS. I love you July.
