A Little More From Last Weekend

Look what I found on our shop hop last weekend. Way to go Moda! Lace-Up Sewing Cards! I spent hours playing with these when I was a child. I swear these look just like the ones I remember from my childhood.

I picked up a handmade silverware basket from the Amish Quilt shop. It is perfect for my shipping supplies. I also picked up a copy of Kathy Kuderer's "Down a Country Road". Her book offers a look into the history and lifestyle of the Amish in our area. (Guess what Jenna? The Amish in the Cashton area came here 44 years ago from Holmes County Ohio)

Last weekend our son was home from college for a few days. Our son is known for his goofy faces.
Now you know where he gets that from.
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. I'm sewing lots of little quilt blocks to make more jewelry for an art gallery in Duluth.

I love it when you go somewhere and end up with some new treasures. Looks like you had a great time hunting them out.

Wow - what a shopping expedition! The sewing cards are delightful and the amish book sounds really good - I find their way of life so interesting!
