who Knew....










Well how was your weekend?  I really enjoyed mine.....lots of family time including mini golf...which is a favorite with us.   I won!  4 eagles!  Needless to say my dh and son were not happy...sore losers!  Oh well I bought them icecream ...so all was well.    We had a lot of sunshine...which always does the soul good.  I managed a bit of creative time today after my dh left for Portland.   I have been collecting things here and there to create another parisian sewing pocket.....been picking up old scissors here and there...decided to paint a pair.  Who knew they could become art.   I love the utilitarian look of them.  Of course they work perfectly with a sewing theme.   I also picked up some of the new french General goodies over the weekend.......I LOVE french general...I have had Kari Meng's book for years.  Sooo happy that you can now get some of her goodies at Michaels.   NICE quality too.  You better run to your nearest Michaels.  Lots of gorgeous reds...my fave.   So I used some of those goodies as well...and some of my crickle ribbon I have been making.  My fave color combo of black, red, and creams.  My house is done in the same.   I added bits of kraft here and there as well.   I love the feel of it!  HOpe you enjoy...and hope you were able to enjoy some sunshine this weekend.  Happy Monday!   Hugs, cherry

This is gorgeous!! I love the French General collection and have had my eye on it ever since I watched the first videos of the CHA show. Of course here in the UK we don't have Michaels. boohoo. Am going to google again to see whether anybody sells it online yet. Your pocket looks fantastic.

I have a little request, hope you don't take this in the wrong way...Whenever you post pictures of your projects, you always show lots of detailed close ups which is great, but I would so love to see the whole project from a bit more distance, so I can see how it all hangs together if you see what I mean...

Take care and have a great week
Hugs from across the pond

Another beautiful pocket! Love that shabby vintage style. I haven't seen Kari Meng products at my local Michael's. I'll have to keep checking. Half of the weekend was beautiful but the other half was a washout. I don't mind. It ended up being rainy and very chilly on Sunday, so I made a turkey dinner (mini Thanksgiving!).

Weekends are all about resting, relaxing, and finishing the laundry these days before heading back to first grade on Monday mornings! :)
