Now I ask you - Who was it that had a senior moment?
Friday, April 26, 2013
While I was in Florida recently, I was speaking with my sister, Gail, about the Christmas card I sent her. She told me she saves them all, but she didn't remember seeing one this year. I explained it was a folding card, like the one I sent my parents, only a smaller version. "No, no, I don't remember getting one." Well, I thought she was simply having a "senior moment" and forgetting the card I sent. She is two years older than me... But just this week...

(like I don't have enough to do), I came across this photo:
People are so creative, aren't they?

While I was out and about this weekend, I went to JoAnn's. I noticed they had upholstery samples on clearance. My friend, Janie, gave me quite a few, but of course, that just made me more intrigued. So I bought a few more and...

I told you a while back - when I went to the Vance sister craft weekend - that Diana made homemade bruschetta for lunch. It was to DIE for! I made my own version today. I did not have toasted sliced croutons, so I had to make my own. I cut and then toasted pumpernickel bread (which I LOVE). The tomatoes are from Costco. I used about half of the package - they go a long way. I could have used less.

I have a small pantry, which I love because I can't fill it up with a bunch of "stuff."

but it felt like it at my house - for just a few minutes - last night. Kate is having a Wizard of Oz party with her first graders today, but they don't know it yet. She wanted to make a little something festive to eat, so we found these on the internet.
Fudge stripe cookies, turned upside down.
A little bit of chocolate frosting to "stick" on the Hershey's Kiss.

Nicole and Sam had a garage sale on Saturday morning. It was my intent to get there at 7:00 when they "opened for business", but it was more like 8:15 before I pulled up in front of their house.

I just want to make a recommendation for some great reading:
My book club just finished reading it and we all really enjoyed it. It is a great testament to the human spirit and I highly recommend it.
One bit of info: It is about a WWII fighter pilot/bombardier.
There's quite a bit of history and it made me want to ask my dad a whole lot of questions.

Miss Lydia is my daughter, Kimberly's, friend - and they have been good friends since Junior High School. I have always enjoyed Miss Lydia. Lydia's mom, Kathy, and I will occasionally get together to craft, or just to share ideas. It is always a good time and sometimes Kimberly and Lydia will show up. I just love it! During their last visit, Lydia told us about a t-shirt quilt she was making and I asked her to share photos.
First she cut the pieces and put them together to make 20" x 20" squares.
She used both the front and back sides of t-shirts from her high school (McClintock)
and college (ASU) days.
Then she laid them out...
... and sewed them together.
I absolutely love the look and think it is a great way to remember your school days.
Guess who wants to work on this mother-daughter project? That's right, Miss Kimmy.

When I go out of town, I get all out of whack! The time change is different, the food is different, I'm sleeping in a different bed, and well, I can't always find internet or wi-fi connections! Waaaahh! One thing leads to another and I get really behind in my blogging because by the time I get back, I am out of the habit. I got back from Florida a week ago after a visit with my parents, my sister and her family. I had a package sent to Gail (my sister) so that it would arrive while I was in Florida.
Thanks for reading.
It was the Flirt quilt! (I wanted to surprise her.)
This is the edging that was sewn on by my friend, Carol, who was also in on the surprise.
The machine quilting is absolutely beautiful! I need to give a big thank you to Chuck who lives in California.
The quilt turned out so nice - the only thing left is to hand stitch the edging.
This was one thing I shared with my mom because she made baby quilts for each of her grandchildren, and a few of her great-grandchildren. She had a few questions about jelly rolls.
He is hard to see, but the alligator is in the picture above. He kind of looks like a log on the opposite side of the waterway.
Thanks for reading.
