Did you have a good weekend? I sure did! Shirley, my best friend from 7th grade, was in town and so we set up a lunch on Saturday. When I told my younger sister, she said she'd like to join us. So, on Saturday we met at Claim Jumper restaurant and we got to meet Barb - Shirley's best friend from high school and her niece, too. Thanks to Facebook, Shirley re-connected with Barb after losing contact with her since high school! Now they are fast friends again and spend a lot of time together. We talked and had a good time for 3 hours! Then I went to the biggest fabric store in Oregon to find the perfect ribbon for Paige's yellow Teddy Bear. (More on that below)
Yesterday Shirley brought Barb and came out to see us.. and the dollhouse! Shirley has collected miniatures for years and I knew she'd love the dollhouse. She did! So did Barb.. and Barb's husband who has actually built 3 dollhouses himself. Then I showed them my Japanese Flower Shawl I'm working on.. and here is Shirley modeling it for me.The back and the front. I have a ton more flowers to do to get this puppy finished. It's made using Drops Alpaca and is very soft and very organic and very pretty colors!
Then we went to our son Shawn's house for a visit and a pizza dinner. Here are our 4 grandsons being silly and having fun. Michael and Gabe are Shawn's boys and Hayden and Caleb are our younger son's boys. I got the head of Jenna's teddy bear done while watching the boys playing and racing about, up and down the stairs. Shawn invited us to come each Sunday so it seems we'll be having family time every week, which I'm really happy about. :-)
And lastly.. the great ribbon debate.. I found a really pretty yellow and green ribbon at Fabric Depot and I think it looks great on the bear. When my daughter showed a photo of the finished bear to Paige she said.. I don't want a "tie" and I want a red jacket. But the bear will stay as it is until all 6 bears are done.. then I will get to making some clothes for them. LOL!
Did you have a good weekend? I hope it was great and that you have a fun week ahead of you. Thanks for all the great comments on my last post! You are the BEST!!
