It doesn't feel like summer here in sunny California.  I live in San Jose and it has been the coldest summer in 40 years.  I heard that on the news last week.  Today at noon, DSH and I were being lazy (it being Saturday and all) sitting around playing on the computers in sweats!  Unheard of in mid August.

This is my mom and her twin sister.  Aren't they cute?  They made their outfits.  My aunt is on the left.  My mom,on the right, is the oldest.  Their birthday is August 1st, one of my cousins is also August 1st, a granddaughter of mine is the 4th, a cousin's son is the 5th, mine is the 6th, another granddaughter of mine is the 8th, my husband and my anniversary is the 8th, and the cousin who is the dad of the boy on the 5th  is the 9th.  Got all that?  The family always has a big August Birthday Bash.  My mom and aunt are the STARS OF THE SHOW because they are twins.   They are SPECIAL.  Am I bitter?, a little ;)  Anyway,  they turned 73 this year, they are hard of hearing, there were little people running around and the party was much more balanced.  I definitely enjoyed it more this year.  Maybe I'm maturing a little bit too!  It also helped that my cousin and his wife who hosted the party gave me her mother's Baby lock serger!!!  It is about 7 or 8 years old but not used because her mother passed away just after she bought it.    No one in the family wanted it so I got it.  I've been wanting a serger for a long time and I couldn't decide what to get.  Now, the problem is solved.  I will take it in for service since it has been sitting in their garage for the past 7 or 8 years.  Then I get to figure out how to use it.

I have more sewing pictures to show but DSSD has to put them in the computer as usual.  So, when that gets done I will post them.
