Another Busy Week!

Well, another week has gone by. Can't believe it is already August. The last seven months seemed to just fly by. Christmas will be here before we know it.

I have been working on a wool applique mat for Country Collections for the last week or so and I finally finished it this evening. Soooo glad!!!! It had a lot of pieces to cut out and I handstitched it rather than using my sewing machine.
Friday, July 31, my friend, Sandra and I drove to Purcell, OK to meet our friend, Ginger and visit the antique shops there. I found some treasures I couldn't live without, of course. We had lunch with Ginger's daughter, Jenn at a wonderful eating place called Janet's. The food was delicious and the cookies even better. After lunch we shopped at a couple more antique stores and then Sandra and I headed back home. We had a great day with Ginger and hope to do it again soon.
My son, Nick moved to a different apartment in Washington DC this past week and I am flying up there to help him get settled in before school starts. I will be gone Aug 5 to Aug 17. I hope to visit some of the museums and do some other fun things while I am there.

Hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend. Do something fun and keep smiling...makes people wonder what your up to.....



  1. I had a great time meeting with you and Sandra for a little antique shopping. We found some great lil' goodies and we will have to do it again soon.

    Your pumpkin mat turned out wonderful...can't wait to see it in person!

  2. PatiJane, Love your penny rug. You did an awesome job with the stitching! Loved your finds from the antique shop too.
    Safe travels to you on your trip out to see your son...

  3. Pati, the pumpkin mat is just wonderful. You really did a great job on it. Am anxious to see what you do with all those "treasures" you found the other day. Bet they get made up into some really fun items.
    Enjoy your trip to DC.

  4. I saw that fall penny rug displayed at a local quilt shop recently - such a fun design! Especially loved the cattails - yours turned out GREAT!

  5. Love how your penny mat came out, it is really beautiful. Lots of great finds too.


  6. Oh that wool mat is scrumtious. I have not attempted any quite that detailed yet. That is eye candy!

    Thanks so much for stopping by!
