I have been on the go since this past Friday…so it feels good to just be at home today.
I went to a Quilt Shop Hop Show with my friend, Linda.
There were some beautiful quilts and quilt racks for sale…plus lots of fabric and patterns too.
I really wanted this mannequin in the photo below for my sewing room, but it wasn’t for sale and they were so busy in this booth that I couldn’t even get into it to ask the shop owner where she got the mannequin from. If you look at the bottom right corner of this photo below…you can see a doll that has green on the top half of her. The bottom half is a metal cage and the doll is holding a mini quilt…she was for sale for $60.00.
I did purchase a couple of things while at the show…some fabric squares to put onto more tote-bags for my 2 shows this coming Fall and this Suzy’s Sack pattern. I want to make me one of these sacks to carry when I go thiftin’ and junkin’ and hiking too. Love that you can put the small strap thru your belt loop on your jeans. The finished size is 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 and it can hold your phone, a small wallet, and some other goodies that you might need.
I went over to my parent’s home and while my dad and hubby put in a water softener…my mom and I did a project.
This is a picture of my mom in her baby dress and hanging on the rack below is her actually baby dress. She just recently put it in a special bag to protect it. Yep…those are her baby shoes too.
Here is the project that we did…added white ruffle trim around each frame that is holding photos of her granddaughter’s and great granddaughter’s wearing her baby dress. We had to use trim…because some of the photos were different sizes.
On the top row is my 2 girls…and on the bottom row (left) is my granddaughter…and then my sister’s 2 granddaughters. My sister’s 2 girl’s and her oldest granddaughter didn’t get their pictures taken in our mother’s dress, because my grandmother gave the dress to my mom after they were all too big to fit into it.
The puppies got groomed and they are just too cute!!
It was a busy weekend…so I’m am enjoying just being at home today. Both puppies are on my lap and I’ve been reading a book on this rainy day and playing Words with a blogging friend on our iPad’s.
I just heard from my sister…she is in Mississippi visiting her youngest daughter and granddaughters. They let school out early today to make sure that all the children got home early…they are expecting bad weather this evening with a threat of tornadoes. It stormed this morning and we have tornado threats for tomorrow here in Ohio. My thought and prayers are with those that have had such bad weather with tornadoes and flooding yesterday and today. Also keeping everyone in my thoughts and prayers that are going to get bad weather tonight and tomorrow. Hope everyone stays safe!!
Until next time…….. blessings, Cindy
