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
