Connecting Threads Warehouse Rummage Sale

Or.........whatever you want to call it, that's what it seemed like to me! Made 2 trips, second was more productive than the first as more fabric was available and there were only 2 people there.
Went with Frannie the first time and pretty much picked out some neutrals. Went back later withe Denise and added some color to the stash :-)
Our  pics are below...........I added 10 pounds of fabric, I think Denise bought maybe 3.5.

Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dad's out there.  I have not posted in awhile.  At times there are alot of things going on and then there are times that absolutely nothing is going on.....I am ok with those days :-)
Today will be spent getting ready for tomorrow's cake decorating class, breakfast with my aunt and uncle who are in town, then a trip to JoAnn's, Giant Eagle and then dinner with my kids later....busy day!!!

No pics to post with this post.  I am set on completing the grandmother's fan.  It's almost done.  I am doing basic stitches on the borders and then the  binding will go on.  Once it is entirely done I will post a pic of the final product.  Not sure if I am keeping this one or handing it off.

Relaxing Sunday

The pulled BBQ is in the crock pot staying warm for dinner later with the kids.  Simple dinner...pulled pork sandwiches, salad and chips......can't get any easier.  Eddie usually does the grilling but with the rain being so unpredictable this week I told him simple sandwiches would be just fine........plus they love mamma's yummy pulled pork that has simmered for 2 days.

The fabric pic is the latest project in my head.  I have an empty wall in the living room that is screaming for something to be hung on it.  What it will look like is in the picture posted below. Now that I have new carpet and paint I want something new for the wall.  I was going for a pop of color with a slate blue ......which it looked like in the fabric store but in my house it looks like turquoise.  I am just going to use it for flower buds so it may be ok.  I will have to think on that one.
