Rainy day in Illinois

It's supposed to rain all day today - and I'm really happy. First because my yard and gardens really need it and rain is still free and second because it's a rainy day and I'm at work. :-) So it's perfect. I love the way everything smells so fresh and clean. It can do this at least once a week as far as I'm concerned all summer long.

I made a ton more progress on Quaker Garden. I did stitch last night while watching TV and instead of picking up one of my other projects, my hand went right to QG. So I got in around six hours yesterday. I calculate I'm over two thirds done and should have it rapped up by the weekend or at least Monday of next week. No stitching tonight - tonight is agility with Molly!

I need to find a source for framing stock. I can, with the help of one of my brothers, make my own frames. I do ok at cutting at a 45 degree angle but Marty, the youngest of my three brothers is a perfectionist and he has all the right power tools. So if any one who reads this has online sources, please let me know. I have a backlog of over 15 projects that need to be framed. I can even cut the glass should I choose to frame it that way. Stained glass is one of my many other hobbies.
