A few goodies to share

Last Sunday, we travelled again to The Wishing Well Cafe for a Blogger meet up.  It was a lovely day all around.  The  weather was gorgeous, the food delicious, the ladies chatty and pleasant.  There were a few new faces this time and a few faces from before that were missed.  Show and Tell was great. There is a lot of talent in this group.  It was just a nice day all around.  I met Peg and Dale too:)

This week I finished a couple of small gifts for a nice lady I visit once a month for a service.  They are simple fabric boxes with a small amount of quilting.  She does not sew at all and she was SUPER impressed by what I made, much more than anyone who sews would be...but anyway, it was sweet to watch her open them.  Here is what I made for her:

On the way home, I stopped at my favourite Vinnies.  I think this was my best day ever there. Here is what I brought home with me:

A large handmade doily,  $1

2 smaller doilies, 50c each,

A heart shaped cushion with Battenburg Lace,

Two white gauze and one yellow flannel baby blankets in pristine condition that will be used for other purposes, 50c each,   and a cake pan and colander,  all like new.  Grand total was $11.

Once I was home from these errands, I watered some flowers.  My mother always had Portulaca aka Moss Rose when I was little, and I have them every year now too. They love full sun and minimal water.

    This weekend I am hoping to stay in and do a bit more sewing.  debbie

  2. Great your little baskets...I was good but I think Dale may have been a little naughty....LOL glad you had a good time...

    1. Hi Peg, Thanks for stopping by. I'm glad you like the baskets too. They are actually a fun little project that goes pretty fast. I think we need to keep a close eye on both of those chicks LOL. Marie did a fantastic post of them exploring her home, so cute! debbie
