What a weekend!

Oh how I love long weekends, and even better when they are 4-days long! And so much got done this weekend, I really needed this...

Wonderful (mostly) Labor Day weekend activities:
- Trip to Sam's with mom to print off pics for my Quilt Journal
- Cleaning in the house done that needed to be done
- Pictures framed and hung in the house (including the big wedding one, woo hoo!!)
- Studying
- Sleeping in
- Lots of time with the family
- Golfing and reminiscing about the wedding day
- Relaxing
- Boot camp
- Sewing
- and a few other things along the way...

And must show a few pictures!! Of course, how could I not, right??

First off we have a few vintage patterns mom and I found and have framed to hang in our sewing rooms.



I also finished a gift for a family friend's wedding in 2 weeks. This gorgeous table runner and set of coasters go with the quilt that mom is making here with the beautiful batik fabrics:
Of course I had to do the photo "toe-catcher" style as AmandaJean sometimes does, so fun!

And last but not least, I did a bit more work on my Batik Grandmother's Flower Garden, and have starting connecting another grouping:

And projects on tabs for September you may ask? Nothing really, I'll just be teetering along on my Grandmother's Flower Gardens. I also wanted to let you all know that if I go MIA during the month of September, have no fear, I will be back! I have my big, huge, professional exam the first week of October, and I will be studying during pretty much all free time I have. Needless to say, my social and fun life will be pretty much non-existent during the month of September (besides the weddings I have to go to).

Well, that was just a small compilation of my long, and delightfully joyful weekend! What did you do?

Hugs & giggles!

What a great idea for framing the old pattern envelopes! I know I have some packed away that I'm going to dig out and frame for my quilt studio . . . thanks for the idea. Your pictures are always so good. Keep 'em coming!

I have some old patterns I should copy your brilliant idea!! It would look cute on my walls in here.
Hope your big exam goes well.
