Long Time No Blogging - I'v Been Busy!

I have been super busy the past few weeks! First was Son #1's wedding reception in Chattanooga. They had this super life size cutout of them from their wedding day! Here is my Mom standing with it. She looked so pretty!!!

and here is my Auntie Delaine and Uncle Roy from Michigan! It was so good to see them!
I was blessed to have a lot of my family, from all over, come to the reception! You just never get enough time to visit with everyone!!

Then it was a quick makeover of a thrifted skirt for my sister Gail for her 50's party! I also made her a super quick crinoline. It wasn't pretty, but it did the trick!

Then I made a 50's pennant banner for a picture backdrop and thrifted the 45 records from the Goodwill outlet! Looks pretty good to me!

Not to mention the Forth of July party the same weekend! Check out my daughter's recount of it on her blog! It was an exhausting and exciting time! Too much fun!!!

I also found another pretty mirror for the sewing room, while thrifting the forty five records, that I painted my favorite color - white! In this picture the painting is in process! It's amazing what 10 minute time blocks can accomplish!

I managed to get to a 50% off sale at a fabric store in town. I, of course bought Halloween fabric! I love the vintage look to these fabrics!

I also have been making some raggedy roses pins for some aprons I am making. They turned out really cute!

But beware of that glue gun!!!!

Son #2 made us a fantastic dinner on Sunday night with the catch of his fishing trip in in Charleston South Carolina, and some purchased shrimp. Barbecued shrimp with baguette bread to dip in the sauce, blackened red fish, new potatoes, and steamed veggies! It was an awesome meal!

See I told you I have been busy! I also started a part time job at night Monday thru Friday with weekends off.

And to my sister Tami, your pillows are on the schedule for this weekend!

Be back soon!

Holy cow! You have been really busy. & I know those were just the highlights. What are gonna do with that Halloween fabric? It's super cute! Love those little flowers too. They're on my to-make list. & Can I ask why in the world you took on another job? Got to much time on your hands? :)
