Hardly no sooner than they got back from the cruise Sandy and I were off to Jo Ann fabrics with coupons in hand! LOL! That night Sandy sat there and drew up and made two new patterns while I watched TV.... gee I don't know how she does it! GRRRRR!!! Wish I was that creative. Her mind always seems to be in crafting mode. Stop by Sandy's " The Olde Country Cupboard blog" and check out her two newest e-patterns, soo cute! I really enjoyed my time at Sandy's house sitting and then visiting when they returned, got my hair cut short and colored while I was there too. Becky was supposed to house sit for Sandy and Todd but Becky became very ill and was hospitalized the night b/f she was supposed to be there so fortunately I was able to fill in the hole for her. Best wishes to Becky and prayers for a speedy recovery. Becky had made a little scrap bag for Sandy, it is weighted and sits there hanging off the edge of the table by the sewing machine. It has a cute fabric bag for tossing your scraps in, I absolutely loved it. Becky does beautiful, beautiful work. I hope to buy one from her, I sure could use it! My scraps and threads go all over the couch or floor and then I have a major clean up job after everything I stitch. Well I have a back log of work to do so I shall end on that note! Blessings to all who stop by! Carmen B.
