Class Reunion

I attended my 35 year high school class reunion a couple of weeks ago. It was held in my home town of Ashton, Idaho. Nineteen of 52 graduates attended. We were the class of '75 at North Fremont High School. It was fun. (I am sitting, 3rd from the left.)(One person departed before picture was taken.) The friend on my right and I were able to do some hiking and biking around town during the day before the dinner. I grew up in an absolutely gorgeous area. Beautiful farming area, surrounded by the North Fork of the Snake River. MOVING ON! to a lighter note! Take a look at this sweet little girl. I was able to get her smiling and talking to me! I get to see her again in 2 weeks! She is coming to my house, yeah! (Oh yea, her mom is coming too. :))

Glad These Are Done

Bathroom curtains hung today. This was A LOT of sewing! I've had this idea in my head for a long time, ever since I saw it in Passionate Patchwork by Kaffe Fasset. A few weeks ago, I noticed the 22 year old white eyelet curtains were not pretty ANYMORE!!! I picked up some shot cottons and various fabrics, keeping with the colors in the bathroom: light blue and violet. Many stash fabrics were used also.
In the Dark! oooo

Some fabrics are from Kaffe Fasset, others very random. I'm please with how this came out. The squares were cut 3.5 inches, the shot cotton in the middle at 2 inches. After sewing the shot cotton to the center of the 3.5 inch square, I cut out from behind it. I LOVE the effect this shows with the light!
I am so so glad these are done and up, as I am leaving town tomorrow to go see that sweet baby in Arizona... yeah! While I hold her, maybe her mamma can get some sewing of her own done.
Sorry about this last shot, never thought I'd put a picture of dirty toes here, but this is the ONLY picture the Brettster would let me take of him for his Pioneer Trek adventure. I guess he was proud of this.
