Busy, Busy, Summrer

What a BUSY summer so far.  We not only are getting ready for our sons wedding in August, but have been busy with our dear Amish friends.  See, we drive them where they need to go.

My husband drove 6 adults and 10 children to up state WI.  As you can imagine there was not enough room for me.   What a cool place he was in.  It reminded him of were we are from in PA.  They went to a wedding.  Unfortunately, he could not take any pictures.  But he sure learned a lot.  

Unfurtunately, a week later "grandma" passed away and he had to take them all to a funeral in MI.  At least she got to see her youngest granddaughter get married.

Me, well, I was as busy as a bee.  I have been going with my future daughter-in-law to find a gown.  (Oh, she found a beautiful one)  since then we have been going to the lady that is altering it for her.  Tomorrow we pick it up.  Oh I also found a dress for myself.  YEAH!!   I think that was harder than finding her gown. 

I also got some beautiful fabric to make 30 little table toppers for her and one large one for the bridal's table.  

So off I go to get them done.  I never knew there were so many things to think of and do.

So till later....

Come join me on my "PICNIC"

A BIG thank you to Mary Winegar and Madame Samm for all their hard work and for coming up with this great idea of having a picnic.  "THANK YOU"

Now...come see mine.....

(First...let me remind you, I think out of the box)

Remember Sally?  Well, she decided to enjoy the sun, the warm summer breeze, beautiful flowers, hear the birds singing, etc.  So she packed her basket with fabric, sissors, cutting mat and her quilt book with a pattern she wants to make.  Oh, a sandwich and lemonade. 

See her basket of goodies?  (You can't have a picnic without ants. )

Here is Sally.  (Looks like the bees want some of her lemonade)

Now this is only her pre-picnic.  See she got a phone call earlier from her boyfriend.  He wants to take her out later that evening.  But what she don't know is he wants to take her to the beach to watch the sunset.  I did get a peek at his basket.

Oh look, he is going to bring the crazy quilt she made him and is that a red rose I see?  Gee I wonder what he is thinking????

Hope I didn't bore you too much.   Now it is time for me to pour my glass of lemonade and find a comfy spot.  Come join me and see who else is having their picnic today.
