Not much stitching

One thing starts then before you know it, another thing starts and then what you planned to do does not happen. That sort of describes yesterday. Not much stitching at all. I managed to organize a few things in the sewing room. I did get laundry done and a few things in the garage cupboard organized but no sewing. Mr H suggested we take a ride toward Luke Air Force Base which is about 10 miles west of us. So off we went. It was hot, around 89 in the blazing sun as we sat hoping to catch sight of a take off or 2......

 The sound of a roar and then over our heads it flew...the F-35 in all it's glory. A magnificent jet. The sound was not only loud, but the car shook and my could feel it in my bones. In all we watched 4 take
off. I know the picture is not the greatest, but it was what I could get when my hands were not shaking form the vibrations. I love the sounds as they fly over my home; but not everyone does. They are much higher so the noise/vibrations are much less. Why people complain is beyond me; they moved here knowing the base is here and it was here much longer than homes were. Anyway, after leaving we stopped for lunch for pizza and salad then onto Lowes for plants to fill a few pots. By then, stitching was not on my mind. I will be off to the Post Office to mail out The Brother Alan's sewing box this morning then to a meeting then....hopefully then, I will give some attention to Red Riding Hood.  I have just washed a yard piece of white terry cloth that I will be using as a lining in an apron top. I plan to make on Sunday so I can get it into the mail Monday or so. Gues that about covers things for today. It has been so nice to have you visit with me.... thank you for the kind words and of course your friendship. Enjoy your day.

Always nice to have a day out with a loved one. You captured the plane well.

I love the photo of the jet flying overhead. I love to see them over here too - we usually only see them when we drive south to the Lake District where they do manoeuvres over the mountains and fly very low.
