My Bonnie Flys Over the Ocean

...my Bonnie flys over the sea. My Bonnie flys over the ocean, so bring back my Bonnie to me. On second thought, BONNIE, please stay away! Well as most of you have seen on the news there's a "tropical wave" which could turn into Bonnie if the right factos are in place. And if this happens the gulf is sure to get it.



This makes me sad for two reason. 1. The oil...can't they catch a break?! 2. My vacation in the gulf starts tomorrow. Come on Bonnie, help us out a little by staying far away. In fact, why don't you just go away altogether?!? Thanks! Honestly...I'm not as concerned about the weather as I might have been at early stage in my life. As much as I love the sun and being out and getting a tan these days I just want to GET AWAY! I want to be away from work, away from life, and just spend time hanging with my husband and family. So, as long as Bonnie doesn't blow our condo down we'll still be vacationing. I think I'll keep up the good weather prayers though because some sun really would be nice.

Speaking of Bonnie, do you think its a coincidence that I named my sewing machine Bonnie a while back?! I know its silly to name something like that but I'm a namer. I name cars, Christmas tress, etc. I figured if I'm going to spend as much time with something as I do my sewing machine it needs a name. After the work I've put her through these last few weeks I think Bonnie is more fitting than ever. Maybe I'll change it to Hurrican Bonnie.

So I leave you with this...my LAST order before vacation. I finished it last night around 12:15. I've made one like it before but this one has and added touch which I think makes it even cuter.

SO SO cute, as always. Hoping your vacation goes as planned. We cancelled our gulf coast vacation this summer b/c of the oil, and my heart is STILL broken over it.
