R & R

Mr. Sunshine and I have been out of town getting some rest and relaxation and spending time with family.


While I was there, (in Idaho) I picked up some beautiful red fabric for Karen’s 5” red/white fabric swap.  I’m really excited to be able to participate.



I also found a fabric outlet store and came away with lots of other wonderful fabrics as well.  Average price….$3.60 a yard!!  And all quilt quality…the kind of fabric you like to sit and caress…it just feels so heavenly and looks so pretty.



My mother-in-law, sister-in-law, Rhonda and I spent an afternoon sewing some tiny book covers.  I had my camera with me but didn’t think to take a single picture of us working together at the kitchen table.  I don’t know why, other than we were just too involved in what we were doing.



My sweet little Featherweight came with me and she sewed like a dream.  I just love her.

We shopped and ate and played games and visited and had a great time.



I also got in some nap time and finished two good books.

I highly recommend them both.

It was wonderful to get away for awhile.  Now we are both refreshed and ready to dive back into our normal routines.

I think that is the same fabric I almost bought for the red and white 5 inchers today at Hobby Lobby!
But I came home empty handed.

Looks like you had a wonderful time on your R&R. Those little book covers are too cute -- I'm thinking I need a featherweight too!

Those little book covers are adorable! Do you have the instructions posted online? I'd like to make a few into Bible covers for gifts.
