Memorial Day Weekend

It was a long, weary weekend. I mowed the grass, did some shrub trimming, and general outdoor housekeeping. I managed to slip out to the pier occasionally to relax and read.
Sunday, AJ and I went to Delaware to look at some houses, eat at Jimmy's (soft shell crabs), shop at the outlets, and stop in Mare's Bears quilt shop. The traffic at the beach was horrendous and the crowd in the stores drove me nuts!
The quilt shop had a 25% off everything in the store sale. I was very good and only picked up some fabric - three landscape fat quarters, a cloth book for Barrett, and 2yds of crab fabric.
I did make the pillowcases Mary Beth requested. They are for a friend who is getting married.
And, I made the Texas flag pillowcase for Brice. Good thing I am experienced. The directions in the kit were a little skimpy.

Back from Texas

I have been back for two weeks! First time I have an opportunity for an update. It was really great to have both my daughters at Barrett's christening.

The service included Brice's first Holy Communion, so it was extra special. The church is tiny - tucked away in Hamilton, TX.

I had a fantastic amount of time with both my grandsons. I miss them so much. (note the quilt on the back of the sofa, circa 2003). Here they are waiting to take me to the airport. We were so sad, especially me.
Of course, what is a trip to Texas with a stop at the quilt shop! I had a living social deal for Cabbage Rose in Fort Worth. The local quilt shop in Stevenville has a 30% sale and of course the clearance table.

And when I got home, Mr. and Mrs. Duck were waiting for me!
