Friday Night Sew In

Now that it is TRUE Friday Night Sew In....

First, I APOLOGIZE, APOLOGIZE, APOLOGIZE for not having any pictures with this post...but I'm at my parent's house again........

DIAL UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HOLD BACK YOUR HORROR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't have the patience to wait for the pics to upload; besides, my Mom just went to bed and I don't know where her card-reader is.

I spent the day with my girls, sister and Mom, garage saling for 6 hours! Lots of goodies and summer clothes for Cassie. Whew! Now she can actually have clothes that FIT her, rather than looking like she needs to be trying out for the next Daisey Duke role!

I also hit Hancock Fabrics and actually didn't buy out the store! I think I only came away with about 17-18 yards; I'll have to get back to you on that one Sunday Night :0)
At 7:00, I headed to my Mom's lower floor and started pluggin' away on the Quilts 4 Kids kits that arrived just before leaving the house yesterday afternoon. One kit was Doggy themed, one "Olivia," and the third is a bright, pink "peace" theme. I was able to put together BOTH the Doggy theme AND the Olivia quilt tops tonight before needing to call it quits because the girls needed to get to bed. {{they sleep on the pull-out couch that is on the lower level.}}

Having three girls, I KNOW the "Olivia" show, and I had the theme song playing in my head over-n-over-n-over again while piecing the top. It was kinda hard NOT to have it in my head because Olivia is printed all over the fabric.

It's SOOOOO fun to run the material through the machine; fun, new fabrics that I don't have to count towards (or against) my stash useage.

Okay...I'm off to see if anyone else has posted already tonight.

Family Reunion tomorrow and then heading back home sometime on Sunday evening. I probably won't post again until Sunday

Oh Daisy Duke! "Say No to hoochie!"
I can't wait to see, Olivia. After, you leave dial up land. I don't know who she is????

Have fun at the reunion!

Oh my goodness, I had to stay with 2 of our grandchildren (4 and 2) for two months this winter. I know who Olivia is. Now I have that song going through my head too. Not even a good song. LOL Have fun at your family reunion. Winona
