Pincushion Swap

Well I did get my pincushion off at the post office today. The weather has been terrible,poured down rain all day and only just stopped. Did get some sewing done but no photos yet, will have some soon and of course I forgot to take photos of my pincushion that I sent.

Well I did not watch Pride and Prejudice instead got to watch another of my favorites LA Confidential. I love that movie. It is going to be raining or cloudy for at least the next 4 days, yuk. It was a shame as there was suppose to be a nice open air craft fair this weekend but of course that didn't happen, maybe next weekend.

I did get some people together to do a bake sale for the Great American Bake Sale, should be fun it will be Aug 8th and the local pub is letting me use their side yard for the sale. The owners are great about that, they have yard sales and are having a HandMade Market in July which I have also signed up for. So I guess I better get busy.

Cold and Wet

At the moment I am at work(shouldn't be doing this here)and it is raining and cold. It is going to be this way for at least the next week they tell us. We were all just looking at some wedding photos and it reminded me of my son's wedding 2 years ago, loved the photos. He was married in a very nice chapel and it was so them, everyone loved the ceremony. Here is a shot of them, in Olde City,Phila. Ijust might get some sewing done this weekend since the weather is so terrible, maybe I'll do some stiching while watching Pride and Prejudice just got the dvd set with Colin Firth from the BBC production, love that one.
I will be sending out my Pin Cushion swap the end of the week, I know it's last minute but I found a different one that I liked more so did that one.

Very excited about doing this swap, I have not figured out how to get this on the sidebar of my blog just yet. Same with the Pincushion Swap.

Finally found my swap partner for the pincushion swap, it was in my spam folder. So now to get started, don't have much time,really looking forward to this. Should be a lot of fun.

Also have to figure out what to make with this fabric that I have had for ages, was thinking of some placemats for my daughter, who would love them, just not sure. I'm sure something will come to me.
