Lots of goodies from family and myself ;)…

Well, the little summer trip is over :(….I saw my son, two of my five siblings, my mother, a brother-in-law and sister-in-law and two nieces, as well as the little critters, Cici, Boots, Narella and Maggie! I travelled the Niagra escarpment (highways), from Toronto to St. Catherines and Simcoe, over to Kitchener, Guelph, Paris and then up to Owen Sound and down to Orillia.  I ate too much  and laughed a lot! I have a slew of memories and lots of inspiration to draw from.

I came home with this cute little baby…well, not a baby but young.

shop hop and gifts summer 2013 052We call him Bébé Chat and he is about three years old.  My son had three cats and just acquired a dog; living in an apartment, so I adopted this one and my other son, who just moved out adopted another one…I am wondering when Bébe Chat will find my sewing room!  I hope he keeps me company!

I also came home with a full vehicule and in this post, I will show you some gems (to me) from my sister who is downsizing and I just happened along! ;).

First up is a beautiful blue vest that she knitted up for me! I don’t know where she found the time! Thanks Cic!

She also had two boxes of new to me stuff! I’m not downsizing yet!

shop hop and gifts summer 2013 080Now this book I have coveted forever! Every time I am at my sister’s and I need to read in the little girl’s room, I pick this off her shelf.  You know  Cici, you could have kept this for my birthday or Christmas and I would have loved it ;).  Thank you so much!

Thanks for everything! Shewka is really enjoying her new toys too.

Now a preview for tomorrow: The RED BOX!

I had a great time and sitiched quite a few hexagons along the way, not to mention picking up quite a few hexagon paraphernalia!
