Cowboys, Fabric and Old Stuff

May 27, 2014

Good morning, sweet friends!! I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend. I am SO glad summer is finally here!

Anytime I can get away for the weekend with my husband is a fun weekend, however, our weekend was especially fun!! My husband is a member of the Single Action Shooting Society. Every 3rd weekend, he joins many other men and woman who get dressed up in their cowboy duds and compete in shooting contests. We are talking cowboy boots, holsters, hats, the works! He has so much fun! And while he is doing that, I am home in the hotel with my featherweight and sewing to my hearts desire. Win-win! 

He is back at the hotel from his morning shoot around lunch time, so we have the rest of the day to do  fun stuff together, like shopping at antique stores, thrift stores and quilt shops. This darling little toy sewing machine found it's way back to my sewing room. =)

I also found a sweet lamb planter. I am always on the lookout for them. I made it into a pin cushion using a felted wool ball I made out of wool roving. She makes me smile. =)

And that sweet little lamb is sitting upon Lori Holt's new fabric line Vintage Happy. Oh, yes...That is one happy, happy fabric and I am one happy, happy woman to have it in my stash!

I hope you all had a great weekend, too!! =D
