Hi there friends. Today is Pink and Yellow Saturday in honor of sweet Beverly's Birthday!
Alyssa and I did a little shopping yesterday in Monroeville, after my doctors visit.
Isn't this some gorgeous fabric, it's from the Dogwood Trail line from Moda fabrics. Also, some Butterscotch and Rose mixed in from Moda by Joanna Figueroa.
These are going in a quilt one of these days when I retire. (I still haven't made those curtains, yet, Susie!)
I'm in love with fabric flowers these days.
I bought this book from http://www.amazon.com/ last week. It has instructions for all kinds of flowers from fabric.
Alyssa found this cute hair bow made like an elephant for Alabama Crimson Tide. She says it makes her look like she has eyes in the back of her head!
We found a compact with an A on it, and "it's the only one they have, and it might be gone next time we come, Aunt Dorothy". :)
We also got her a book bag for school next year with pink and blue peace signs all over it, but we had to leave it at the shop so they could sew a big hot pink "A" on it for her!
She's wearing another head band we found for her to wear to church tomorrow. She's learning the song "Amazing Grace" to sing a solo maybe next week.
While in Monroeville we rode by the old courthouse of "To Kill A Mockingbird" fame, by Harper Lee.
The older Alyssa gets the more she looks and acts like the character "Scout", to me. She's turning into a real little tomboy! Too cute.
Alyssa says this is her dream kitchen.
These big flowers are made out of metal by an artist in New Orleans.
I thinks they were about 3 feet across.
The surgeon gave me a shot in one knee and a brace for the other, yesterday. Next visit we will discuss knee replacement. She said to stay off my feet this weekend. Pity, I guess I'll have to go lay down and read this book.... I dropped my Kindle 3 times last night falling asleep trying to finish it! It is SOOO good!
I've been cleaning the attic at the library and I have lots of these old card catalog cards we don't use anymore. If anyone would like to have some for crafting (they measure 3x5) I think they would be good for ATC cards or such, e-mail me your snail mail address and I will send some to the first five bloggers who ask.
A GREAT BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BEVERLY
visit Pink and Yellow Saturday and wish her Happy Birthday
Have a great week,
from me and Wilma
