Memorial Day Weekend

This pretty much says it all…… new building, new flag up, grill cleaned and ready to fire up, lots of work to do!

We also took time for a Walmart date, trip to buy supplies and groceries, a picnic on our new concrete patio and a little relaxation and reflection.

Y’all probably think we forgot to quilt…… but believe me, we have stayed busy with that too.  Maybe some pics of quilts tomorrow?  I have also been working on a doll for a challenge on MQR.  Pics of that to come too.  It is a first for me, have never made one.  And here is a little something else I have been working on:

This was Steve’s creative little job:  (and thank goodness he did it, not me)

Here is something new…. I have heard of this happening, but have never had it happen to me:

I was winding a bobbin with embroidery bobbin thread (quite fine, very strong) and the bobbin “exploded”….. it broke.  Didnt fly across the room or anything, just became a thread slinky!

    The thread slinky looks like it should be a embellishment in something. Love your flag!
