The Party's Over...It's Time to Call it a Weekend...

Three days just disappear when you've got a list a mile long of all you want to accomplish. I did get a lot done...including some of the cleaning that's been hanging over my head (and underfoot! *wink*), but no, I still can't invite company, as there's way more to do yet! When will I get another 3 day weekend? Hmm....not until Columbus Day, as there are Nana Sadie Rose events every holiday between now and then...(sigh)

Guess that means I'll have to squeeze a bit of cleaning in on the weekends and weeknights (or give it up, which might actually be easier...)

I did manage to get a few things done that I wanted to show you - these owls were done for Sedalia, but I never got them posted beforehand:

I thought they were so cute, I had to make a Sundry Case, too...

And this weekend, a fabric arrived that I just loved:
That's a black and white gingham with pink and red ribbons and bows and little bitty hearts. It's just so fresh and springlike, I couldn't resist making it up in both the Posy Too and Sundry Case.

I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend...did you do something special? Go away for a mini-vacation? Stay home? Visit festivals, have a picnic and concert in the park? What did I do? Other than planting tomatoes, cleaning, knitting, sewing, and listening to a book on tape, I dodged raindrops this afternoon and evening...and enjoyed potato salad and three bean salad in a nod to summer food today!

Those owls are so cute! And my little cat bag with the 1950's looking Meezers caught my sisters' attention while we were up at the parents' last week.

I went to see Star Trek. That was my holiday thing.

Stayed home and knit - check!
Dodged raindrops - check!
Went to farmer's market, then took home my goodies and made potato salad - check!

You've got me pegged. It was a lovely weekend.

Sounds like an excellent weekend (that salad sounds yummy!) :) I lean towards the giving up on cleaning suggestion -- seems so much easier ;)

Those owls are so cute! My mother would love that gingham set.

Planting tomatos is the most important part of the weekend. It was FREEZING here on Sunday. (Well, CA freezing.)

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
