Not been a good day in some ways but at least Celena was here with me so that made it much better. She took me to Valdosta to my Dr. appt early this morning to the rhuematologist... not good news at all. I am a bundle of nerves. BUT, afterwards Celena took me to Hobby Lobby, we enjoyed that, she even picked up a few nice items for me that she knew I would like. Then she took me to Cracker Barrel for lunch, was soooo delicious. Of the few times I have ever eaten there I was never too impressed but I must say today our food was exceptional!! Very good. Then we headed to Goodwill. We both found some wonderful things there. But I have to say I am soo proud of this quilt I found. First of all it was in the pkg, brand new, was a very nice expensive name brand & had two beautiful matching pillow shams included. The batting in the quilt must be the softest most cuddly stuff on earth cause it feel soo incredibly soft you could just curl up and fall asleep with no trouble.THE QUILT IS REVERSABLE TOO!! It is beautiful, brightens up my bedroom so much and I was ready for that, needed a spring touch in there. I absolutely love it and you will not believe how little I paid for it... Only $11.00 at GoodWill!!!!!!!!! Talk about doing the happy dance! So after all my company has left today I couldn't wait to get it out of the pkg and sure enough as I had hoped, it was in mint perfect condition, never been opened or used and I LOVE IT! So I had to take a pic to share with you. The other side of it is like a hompesun looking blue gingham. Just gorgeous! The picture does it absolutely no justice at all. You can't even see the little detail designs.

Calico Saturday

Me and Mr. Pat Emmanuel. He has the booth next to me. Was so glad to see him back this spring! And hey what in the world is going on with my hand in this pic?? It looks totally deformed or distorted! LOL!!!

Had more dolls today, worked on some last night after setting up. Black dolls, mammy's and mammy feedsacks all sold excellent. Also Raggedy Ann's sold. Only one left. The crowd seemed to be back and people were buying so I was very happy to see that! Last year the show was really off, no crowd, sales were terrible but over all this year the show seemed to be in much better shape.

More booth.

Yes, it has an E-Trade app! ....Rebecca is so adorable, reminded me of the E-trade baby on TV, she was enjoying playing with that phone! Her mother, April, has been a good customer and a friend for quite a while. Couldn't resist taking the pic... with her mommy's permission of course!

Great Weekend after all!

My grandbabies...Dustin(trying to like a bad dude with atttitude pose),Brianna, and me today!
Kelly with her babies, Dustin(still wearing the bad attitude pose face) and Brianna. I decided to go ahead in the storms yesterday afternoon and get them, The Good Lord was with me and I made it there and back with no problems but I did wait a few hours later than I was originally supposed to go due to the tornado warnings and storms everywhere. It was definitely worth the trip! They left to go back late this afternoon, they had a ride back home.. we all went to my church this morning, had a great time during their visit.

Saturday.. weather....Crafts..and Miley

These are "Pin Keep Make Do's". Looking for quick easy items to make for the show.
And of course Miley..another exciting day around the house for the poor kitty. Guess this game is called"Everyone has to step over me or walk around me" or "Gee you look better upside down"..LOL.. We are having severe weather again so I am house bound. Was supposed to go pick up Kelly and the kids this morning but I am afraid to drive in this weather so I didn't chance the drive, an hour away and there are tornado warnings and flood warnings all around so I feel better not to chance it. All this mess is supposed to push on out by wee hours of morning so I will be glad for it to go. Hope everyone stays safe!
