This is how I spent yesterday morning .....
I love this view from our covered side porch :) My Guy put up the hummingbird feeder (yes, we are a little late!) and repotted some luscious red summer geraniums while I was gone, and my favorite oriental lillies are blooming - everything just looks so relaxing and inviting!!!
I got SO MUCH done at retreat! In addition to finishing up and hand-delivering little man Hudson's carry-around blankie (see post HERE), I also had tremendous fun playing with Jacquelynne Steve's lovely Cottage Charm fabrics!

I also am happy to report that I have my June Bertie all stitched down and embroidered!
|Machine stitching around the pieces.....|
|Hand stitching the embellishments .....|
|And the top is now a finish!|
I also crafted a removable Luggage Strap for my Vera Bradley bag that My Guy gave me for Christmas....
I didn't want to check any baggage on the plane trip to Carolina, so I packed my smallest suitcase and carried my essentials in this bag - it worked out perfectly!!!
And On the Needles, I finished up my Purple Kroy Socks!!! This is my second pair in this yarn because my daughter claimed the first pair before they were ever even off the needles LOL!!! They are just Plain-Jane design, toe-up, two-at-a-time with Magic Loop.
This bright and happy yarn is going On The Needles for my next pair of socks!!!
|Not very shapely yarn cakes are they? LOL!!!|
The day after I got home from retreat, I had to be at the airport at 7am for my flight to Carolina!!! While there, I got lots of time with the sweetest grandkids in the universe!!! I was blessed to be able to attend this granddaughter's performance of a lead part in her school play.....

And we all came together as a family to celebrate our oldest granddaughter's graduation from high school - GO EMMA!!!!!
|No, she is NOT happy about the cap-and-gown get-up!!!|
Watching my son giving his little first-grade soccer players an impromptu bible lesson on the field at half time was a blessing I won't forget soon either..... notice there are players from both teams in that huddle :)
It was a lovely short visit and I miss them all already!!!
As nice as that would be, the Sew-Ezi tables were not provided by the Red Rooster. Most of us at the retreat sew together often, and when one finds a tool that they love (like the Sew-Ezi table!), we all have to have one! You know how that works, don't you?
Hope you have a HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!
Hugs & Blessings!
