Book Marks, Beautiful Wedding and Flowers


Would you like to see a couple of book marks made from selvages? They were pretty easy to put together. I had fun going through my stash looking for cute things on the edges. The back of the bookmarks is a solid fabric. To make these I followed Anna Maria's general guidelines. Next, I think I will make one like hers with stitching on all four edges.

I treated myself to a pedicure on my birthday this week. These gorgeous pink flowers were resting right there by the entrance. Wow, vibrant color. Not surprising, I do not know what kind they are. They seemed to be the 'fresh from Hawaii' kind!

Last month we traveled across Idaho to Rexburg for the wedding of my nephew. Here is a picture of the Brett with my mom after the wedding. Isn't my mom so cute? (I think Brett has grown 3 inches this summer!) Two of the groom's brothers are in the background. The wedding dinner was catered by Johnny Carinos, as the groom has worked there for a couple of years. Tasty. The reception was held outdoors in a beautiful spot. The evening was so pleasant and enjoyable, a late summer night in Eastern Idaho... Whew! My friend from high school lives only a minute away from the reception spot, so she buzzed over. Needless to say, we had a little bit of fun, eating, goofing around and acting like we did in high school. The coolest thing~just before bride and groom left the reception for their honeymoon, the bridesmaids handed out sparklers and lighters to everyone. We all stood in two lines to form a long isle with lit sparklers. The bride and groom ran arm in arm through the isle of people waving the bright sparklers. All were cheering. The effect was very memorable. What a fun occasion!


I completed a UFO over the weekend. I will show it soon!


Take Care~~

I was not familiar with Anna Maria. She's now on my sidebar! Loved her stuff. Those book marks look fun. Think I'll have to make a few of those.

I love the book marks! See sevage crafts can be fun, so start saving them! I can't believe how much taller Brett is than Grandma. I'm afraid when I see him next he will be taller than me! I'll have to work out harder so that I can be stronger if not taller.

I can't believe you didn't mention it was your birthday last week! Well, actually yes I can believe it. I know how that goes. Happy Belated Birthday!!! Cute idea making the bookmarks. I think my 12 year would love making something like that. She's always looking for a new project.
