When five F 16s swoop directly over your house it makes your teeth chatter a bit, the windows rattle and for a moment you can't hear yourself think. That's our house on air show weekend in Kansas City. The park across the street becomes a neighborhood carnival, the streets are packed with cars and occasionally folks spread blankets on our front yard to join in the fun. The more the merrier! We had friends over both days and plopped the grill and the furniture from the back deck on the front yard and had a ball. (The pic was taken last year by my son. I forgot to take one picture.)
I didn't get much sewing done, but got a start on new pillows for the family room. These pillows say "happy" to me.
I received my bookmarks and book from my partner in Amy's Bookmark Swap. You all can be jealous cause I had a great partner. I received these three lovely bookmarks on Saturday along with the cutest Winnie the Pooh Teatime Recipe book. There are really great recipes in there! Thanks so much Rachel! If you have a minute, check out her blog...she's amazing!
I also received this little quilt from the fabulous Betty Ninja. It's so darling. I think it might hang right in my studio. Thanks Betty! A couple of other belated thank you's too. I received the Brilliant Blog Award from Kris at Quilted Simple, Doris at Threads of Conversation and Melissa at Sweet Sewing Sew Sweetly. Thanks ladies. Right back at you! Lastly, Carissa at Happy Stuff I owe you one. I won a Lara Bar on her blog and this big box came in the mail. In the bottom of that box was a jar of her fabulous rhubarb sauce. I made some drooly comments on her blog about her rhubarb, I'm ashamed to say probably more than once. She felt my pain and sent me a jar of her sauce. Pictures? No, sorry. I guess I could take one of the empty jar. I can unabashedly say I licked the jar clean. Simply fabulous.
