Celebrate My Friends, come on...A Give Away!!!
It is here...August 2012. I just need to breathe....in and out, in and out...this August is huge and I have waited so long to say, it's August! My youngest son moved to Illinois in June 2011...I have not touched him since the day he and his fiance drove off into the sunrise the day after his college graduation (sigh). I take that back, 3 months after he left mom passed and he flew out for the service...((double sigh)) How life can change in a moment. Now...it is August 2012, the month of his wedding in OREGON!!!! I do not know how my mother survived leaving her family in another country and not seeing her mom and sisters for several years!
I made 20 more fans yesterday...they are so cute...not the fans but, Connor and Emily.
To celebrate August's arrival the Woolie is having another Give Away!!! I bought 2 of these fabric panels/prints of the Sister's Outdoor Quilt Show poster designed by artist, Kathy Deffendorfer! I am using one to make a pillow for my sis and the other one...can belong to you! All you have to do to be entered in the drawing is be a registered follower of the Woolie blog and leave a comment on this post that you would like to win. This Give Away will run through Sunday and the winner announced on Monday!
The bridal shower is on August 12th and is a recipe shower! no gifts, just 3 of your favorite recipes! I am driving over the mountain and attending with my sweet DIL, then returning home the next day only to travel back over on August 15th when HH and I head over to meet family that is flying in, playing tour guide in Portland and then the WEDDING on the 19th. The newlyweds will be spending a few days at Quiet River for their honeymoon before returning to Illinois for work and school. Why am I telling you this??? I have got to get going on my August UFO NOW! or, it is never going to get done! Here is a sneak peek....
Have a spectacular Wed. I plan on sewing, acupuncture, farmer's market and this evening a meeting at City Hall...oh...and the Olympics!!!
