Here is just one of the pics the police officer took with his camera phone. My husband still doesn't know how it ended up like this.
So, this week I have been without a vehicle while my main squeeze borrowed mine to go to work. Not a big deal, but I really need to have my car. So, yesterday we got a rental for him. His truck has been declared "totalled" so now the search for a new vehicle begins. Hubby says the sad thing is that he was just thinking the day before the accident how much he liked his truck. It was really nice, I will miss it.
I know lots of you out in crafty blogland like to use vintage photographs in your artwork. I too recently started buying old black and whites for future projects, mostly babies and little kids, but some pretty ladies too.
This is my grandma. The one I mentioned in this post. Yesterday I spent a short time with her while my mom went to the dentist. It has been really hard to see how much she has changed since her stroke. Mom says she has good days and bad days. Yesterday she said she knew who I was, but I'm not so sure. I just give her lots of hugs and kisses and tell her how glad I am to see her.
Hey, what do you think of my banner up there? My partner,Barbara from Lavender Lollipop Lane in the valentine swap I'm doing made it for me yesterday. Thanks so much Barb! What a sweetheart, right? I just met her yesterday and she already made this for me. How lucky am I? I did end up buying a banner from Gail over at Shabby Cottage Studio, so I will just keep this one up until I get the one from her. I can't help but smile everytime I see it. Little ol me with roses on my head. Too funny!
So, yesterday I talked to Joy who is selling this weekend at a quilt show in her town. She told me that she is going to take some of the stuff I left at her place during her Christmas sale, like my barkcloth/denim jackets. What great friends I have. She also said that I could bring over some more stuff and she will try to sell it for me. She thought I should bring a lined shopping cart, but since I didn't have one already made up, I thought I would try to make one for her to take to the sale.
Here is what I came up with.
It sure felt good to be sewing again. I need to do more of that while it's too cold and wet to paint. I hope to get about six of these done for the Farm Chicks show. Everyone I make is different and I have a bunch of fabric bundles and shopping carts just waiting to be matched up.
Well, I better wrap up this post as I need to head on over to Joys! Have a great weekend!
