Birthday + Friends Weekend

Birthdays celebrated and a big celebration of friendship all around!
Chris's dying class making 'prettys'.

This "Gimbels" machine reminded me of a classic car. Shiny! Nice!

Pin Cushions of the week got an update. Magnets inside cup hold scissors on side. Magnet on top also to hold a threaded needle or seam ripper.

Happy birthday Cindy!!

Thanks "Julia and Julie"

Thanks Cindy and Jo and all your friends!!

Wax off Wax on

This time I hired someone to have the pleasure of stripping the old wax and applying 5 new coats. I did line the perimeter with 24" of plastic all around. That took a bit of labor on my part. Glad it is done and hope it lasts longer than 6 months. Thanks Elden for a great job!

It is hard trying to haul everything out of the retreat that touches the floor. Good thing this isn't winter.

Summer's end

Thanks everyone for sewing WITH me and treating everyone to a fantastic potluck. And thanks for sharing all your recipes. Enjoy the rest of the summer.

Sunflowers are in total bloom with many a bee buzzing 'round.

Take a peek at these little guys........

These silk scarves are dyed with 'organic' matter and are a fund raiser for MaryJo's sewing group.

The wine bottle cozies made from 'retired' prom dresses and potato bags are fund raisers.
