I honestly don't know where the time goes! It's been over a week since I posted here. It's been a busy week and a hot week (several triple digit days), not to mention extremely dry. But today has been cloudy and finally we've gotten a bit of rain.

I spent the week working on pickle, going to Charlottesville for a doctor's appointment and some shopping and on Thursday I went with my Aunt and Uncle to an antique mall. While in Charlottesville I shopped at my favorite quilt shop and found some beautiful fabrics for upcoming Fall and Halloween dolls. I also found several pieces for Christmas. I'll be listing a pumpkin doll on Ebay tomorrow night and I used some of the fabric on her. I'll post a picture here tomorrow, due to the clouds I wasn't able to get any pictures today.

At the antique mall I found a perfect 2 gallon crock, no cracks or chips at all. I saw a few other things but the crock was all I bought. In fact I have some pickle in the crock now.

I didn't get much sewing done last week, I hope to start on another doll in the next day or so. The garden is not producing very well because of the extreme heat and dry weather so I don't expect I'll have much more canning to do so that means more time for sewing. I have lots of designs in mind and am looking forward to getting them made.

Check back tomorrow for the debut of "Dottie Jack".

Hi Diane! You've got me wanting to go to the quilt shop in Charlottesville after reading your blog! I haven't been since last fall and now I'm a little closer so I'll have to plan a trip. What a neat shop. Are you going to Fishersville next weekend? ~Deb
