The weekend... so nice

So far this weekend has been great! On Friday night I watched Julie and Julia, and it was fantastic! Have you all seen it? If not, please do, you will be glad you did. It really made me laugh. I stayed home with Jessie on Friday. She has been sick with a bad cough all week and by Friday she looked so exhausted. We had a nice day together playing the Wii and making these cards.
I am not taking credit for the awesome-ness of them. I got the idea from Cluck Cluck Sew! Aren't they too cute? We made about a dozen of them for our teachers and family. Here is Jessie sewing her heart out.
Today we went shopping at Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe. It is always good to go to that store. I come home all excited to make things.
I found Sunday Best there and picked out the charm packs from my stash to use. I did buy some Rounneries yardage for the cream background fabric today. It was too pretty to not buy :) I am going to use Portabello Market charm packs for it. Yummy.
Guess what... I am *this close* to being done with Shores! I hope my next post will be a finish... I am sooo excited! Well, time to go and sew and finish cleaning the house. Enjoy your weekend!

Those cards look like they would be so much to make - a perfect thing for my daughter to do! Love the fabric you got - I'm going to have to look for that Portobello Market - it's so pretty! And can't wait to see your finish on Shores! You must be so excited.

I love, love, love your Valentine's and I'm so impressed that Jessie sewed them! I too love "Julie and Julia." It's so much fun to quote!

Really great cards! I hope Jessie is feeling better already.

I haven't seen Julie and Julia, but I hope to one day. Yippee, I'll look forward to seeing your finish!!

Have a happy new week!!

Adorable cards and what better way to spend an afternoon than stitching with your sweet daughter! Your Shores stitching is looking awesome and so close to a finish. I've been wanting to ask - are you using the NPI silks or DMC on it? I've been checking out the peeks of the newest release - Autumn at HRH!!

What a cutie, Jessie is definitely her mother's daughter :-). Looks like the two of you had a good day. The cards are so cute.

Can't wait to see your shores finish!
