This and That

It has been a long time since my last post. I have been doing a little bit of sewing, a little bit of family time and a lot of working. And a lot of overtime. I am working from home now so it is not a problem doing overtime as I am already home. 

I made a signature wall hanging for my sister. She and her hubby moved to Georgia from Ohio. And in this day and age all my siblings lived in the same area and she is the first one of my siblings to move away from where we grew up at. My kids are in New York City and my sister's daughter is in Columbus, Ohio. We miss her and her hubby immensely. They are enjoying their new home and exploring their new surroundings.

This weekend was awesome. I spent all day, Saturday with my mom. We did the Farmer's Market Saturday morning, we did some shopping at Walmart. I am the owner of a new George Foreman grill and my mom is the owner of a new red coffee maker. Then to JCPenney's where I used my gift card and I got a new red crock pot and I still have about $10 left on the gift card.

We packed a picnic and meet my sister, Becky at church for Mass and then to Keehner Park for a picnic before the Southwestern Ohio Symphonic Band played a lovely concert under a moonlite sky. It was chilly out but the music was awesome!!

Today Mom, Becky, Patty, Vincent, Neil and I went to the Vinkolet Winery for their Summer Fair. Crafts, food and wine. We got rained once briefly but all in all it was a good day.

I have not gotten much sewing done. I am making a wall hanging to go over my bed using half square triangles of white and 30's prints. I figure I will need a total of 270 half square triangle units or 135 pairs. Should not take that long to do. I also did some work on my hand piecing project. It is muted colors and will go well in my living room for the fall. I really need to get working on this. The fall is coming!!

This awesome flag was hanging on the side of a church in downtown Hamilton this weekend! It was awesome.

In stitches,
