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.

a tisket, a tasket, a little doll’s basket


I found this little basket for $1 at a thrift sale and snatched it up thinking it would be fun for our granddaughters’ baby dolls.

Then I read Stina’s post and her basket of quilts caught my eye. 


So I borrowed her idea.  I decided to keep the basket for myself to display little quilts in. 

Of course I don’t mind if the grandkids want to play with them too, these quilts are for using and enjoying.

around my sewing room

I needed to do some ironing this morning but first had to move a lot of stuff out of the way.  My sewing room is a very busy place these days…so many things going on at once.
