THIS 'N' THAT

Hello out there in Blogland! Hope all is right with your world. It was a busy weekend as usual. Did lots of fun things. Saturday morning first thing I went to church to participate in the Weecare program I've written about before. Providing handmade baby blankets, hats, etc for indigent mothers at the city's metro hospital. The things these ladies come up with is astounding. What a blessing for these poor women. We do manage to drink lots of coffee and wolf down several donuts while doing such good works-ha!
Directly afterwards at noon, met up with Kitty and Amy (middle daughter) and went to an all-day scrapbooking event. It went until 10:00, but we gave up at 8:30. Everyone gets her own table so you can spread everything out. You saw my craft room, so you will believe me when I say that my stuff overflows to the table next to me! Got lots done & did some more eating and drinking of coffee. We crafters need to stay fueled up, right? Where do you think those ideas come from anyway? Go to Amy's blog and see pictures of her and Kitty working away. Unfortunately, the picture of me mysteriously disappeared--what a shame!

Look what I got yesterday in the mail from Cheryl of Perwinkle Vintage! It's so beautiful and matches my blue and white bedroom perfectly. Go over to her Etsy shop and see all her great handcrafted vintage items. She a sweetie.

Afraid even on these beautiful spring days, the laundry still calls and calls. I need a mute button for these pesky household chores. Later, gator. Nerm

Hi Nerm!
Sounds like a fun weekend! What a fun thing to do with your daughters! That scrapbooking thing sounds so fun!

It is so nice of you to donate your hard work for those women, I'm sure they really appreciate it.

I agree with you Nerm. I am having a hard time right now getting the winter stuff put away.

Snow pants, mittens, hats and boots are piled here and there all over the house.

Nerm,
I can't wait to meet you and your daughters! My daughter loves to scrapbook, I haven't tried much yet because I already have a zillion hobbies and I'm afraid to start another! I love the idea of helping the mothers out by making things for them! What a wonderful way to bless others. Hugs, Victoria Lynn

Hi Nerm!
Thanks so much for visiting me and hope you'll be back! I love your blog, what a wonderful family you have! Your birthday celebration sounded like it was wonderful. I loved the "paper doll" quilt, I too loved paper dolls as a kid it was something we could afford and be creative with. I'll be back to see what you're doing!
Hugs, Sherry
