Took my Mother to get new specs today…and spent a bit of time at the mall while waiting around on LensCrafters. Went to the bookstore–founds some bargain books of interest. I’m not a reader (can you believe that I like picture books : ). But I have been advised by friend Holly that I should read some of Jane Austen’s work…found a book with her five novels all in one for like $8. Seemed like a deal! The problem with me reading is that when I start something, I just don’t want to stop!! So its hard to put down a good book, ya know?
Ooohhh…I’m mean! Here’s a sneak peek of what I’ve been working on. You’ll have to check it out at the Fiskars site sometime in September. Its quite fun!
The girls both stayed the night with friends so, tonight I sewed. I finished another project that started off something like this…
I mentioned it yesterday…oh my goodness I just LOVE these fabrics!! Shangri La by 3 Sisters for Moda. Imagine this with a chocolate brown crushed velvet…mmmmmm!!! Yummy, chocolate!!
Tomorrow afternoon, my Mom and I are going to spend some time working on our sewing projects. She is quilting Cash the CUTEST little quilt…all by hand. Its turned out so nice. She’s really into quilting and has tried to persuade me to jump in, but I’ve been kind of hesitant. Truthfully, very few of the older style quilt patterns do a thing for me. I just love a patchwork quilt. Just simple. I love a mix of textures too…texture just adds so much.
Well, I s’pose I better get in bed. Party at my house in the a.m. and my sewing stuff is strung out everywhere!! Gotta get up early and clean house. yuck.
Have a great weekend…God Bless y’all!
