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.
We 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!
Now lookd at this stack of quilting books! I have already started on the top one…seriously, reading it from the first page! So interesting! I had no idea that scrap quilts were an art! There is a method to the madness of scraps!
Now 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!
