It rained pretty much the entire day. But that didn't stop us from having some fun. I took Beth to see Linda's shop, and was very surprised to see that Linda was back from Hawaii. It was a nice visit, and we talked for quite a while. Didn't mean to keep Linda from her work!
From there we went to Red Robin for a delicious lunch, and then to Kohl's (I had to return a couple items), and the to Michael's and Joanne's. Came back to my house and had pizza for dinner and then she talked me into making one of the pin cushions like I made her for her birthday. Joanne had given me some of these boxes a while back, and I've been wanting to make something with them. I still have to make one for her for her generosity. She has to tell me what design she wants though. Anyway, I had fun using one of Betty's free patterns of her cat. I can't draw, so I used one of hers. She has some awesome patterns, check them out! I bought the sheep pattern from her and punched that up for Beth too.
This is the pincushion that I made for her. The one I made later was made with wool. I now have something made for Colonial Day in September, woo hoo! Need to really get cracking with that. I wrapped her box with a couple yards of homespun because she likes to make toothbrush rugs. I tried to get Beth to make one of the pin cushions with me, but she just wanted to watch. She did help me by pulling the strings while I held it. Told her she'd get half the profit lol. Beth is good at coming up with some wonderful ideas. Now I just need to get her to DO some of them! She's very creative.... We really did have a nice day. It's a shame that we wait so long in between to get together. I'm stating it here, and I'm going to try and hold her to it. She told me that she is "considering" coming to the Brandywine hook-in this year! Would love to see Beth get back into hooking. I think her "hiatus" from rug hooking has been long enough!Today has been a pretty much nothing kind of a day. The sun is finally out. No rain this morning, so that was nice. I kept saying I was going to get off of this box here and go do something. Now I really mean it. Daughter just left with her boyfriend and his mom, so I have the house to myself!
Hope everyone is enjoying their day....
