I'm a proud mama. This is my oldest son's band, The Letter Division. My guy is the one on the far right. They are a fun, talented group of musicians. Sunday night my hubby and I and Ben's Grandma Bev all attended his band's show at the Jackpot Saloon and Music Hall in Lawrence, Kansas. It was a great show and he would want me to tell you that this is the first time they played a show where you could get tickets on ticketmaster. How uptown is that! The venue was pretty nice and they had a really good crowd. The show didn't start till 9:30 (you can tell it's a show geared for the younger set...i guess those kids are just getting up around that time). That's a bit close to my bedtime, but we sucked it up, found seats at the bar and had a ball.
I have had time for a bit of sewing. Did this tablerunner project from start to finish. Maybe I'm turning over a new leaf??? My folks are heading to Canada Thursday and they'll be stopping to see and stay with some family friends in Fargo. Mom asked me to make something for Claudia as a small hostess gift. This is what I made. I hope my mom is pleased and that it's something that will fit in Claudia's house.
The fabric is a combo of Amy Butler, Sandi Henderson's Farmer's Market (I adore that fabric) and some Flea Market Fancy (ooh and Joel Dewberry too thanks to Two Dogs and a Quilt!) I tried to make it fall-like, though I don't much like the traditional fall colors or that dark feeling. The back is the first block I made, which I didn't really like, but I combined it with yellow flea market fancy and it makes a nice back. I used orange thread to quilt it and that thread looks so cool on that yellow fabric. My mom said to make something like me, so I did. I love how it turned out. In fact, I'd love to keep this one. I tried a little something different for the label. Kinda cute.
My mom-in-law came on Friday and is here for the rest of the week so things are a bit topsy-turvey here. Not much time for sewing or blogging. I'll catch up with all of you when things settle down a bit. Till then, have a fab week!
