A "me" update

I've been having fun with my cousins and Kelly now that they're out of school. Yesterday we had a cook out at the beach. It was a bit breezy and cold but fun and yummy! I sustained a few burns (it was our first cook out) but nothing too serious. Tonight I'm off to work to start my weekend shift :-( The temperature here is in the 90s and will be so until Monday so I really wished that I could stay inside in the AC. It won't be too bad while I'm on the train and once I get to work but waiting for the train is going to be horrendous! I hate the heat and already have a headache!

I do have one finish but I can't share it since it's for the F&S exchange and I have an almost finish which I also won't be able to share because it's for Kelly and he knows nothing about it...well since he reads my blog I guess he does now. I can, however, share this...This is the pinkeep I sent Sharon for the HoE Freebie Exchange. It's by Barbara Ana Designs and can be found here.
Here's the back. I used a red fabric with swirls and gold stars. I also used yellowish goldish pins.
I couldn't find a gold heart but did sew on a silver heart in the middle ribbon. I loved the way it came out and best of all she emailed me to say she loved it too!

I'm still learning how to use my new camera. It's pretty complicated but I'm reading and learning. I can't wait for my cousin to come back from vacation so he can show me...I learn better by demonstration. He showed me a little while at the airport but of course I forgot some of it LOL. Until next time! I have to eat dinner and get ready to go to work. TTFN :-)
