Beautiful Weekend and New Week

Such fun to get away overnight on a weekend. Great to get a change of scenery and then home is welcome again. 
We had a lovely time in Portland Maine to celebrate our daughter's 29th birthday and our youngest! 
Dinner out,lots of laughter and good cheer, walking in the cold, great sleep in a fancy hotel, meeting up for breakfast and more chatting and sharing  : ) Life is good and family is best!

                         The Birthday Girl

Now ready for a new week and more wedding planning and some experimental sewing for the photo booth! Yes, buntings will drape the exterior of the booth in various sizes.

I'm off to sew and will be back with samples : )

Got all my supplies together

Next fabric and bunting making

Amy and Andy had this in mine and of course I had to deliver 

They will use my bunting and make their own Thank you notes. It's amazing the ideas out there in blogland, pinterest, and photos. Really cute idea, don't you think?!

Of course I have more in the works but may stop until we know color scheme, so I can add color and details. The sky's the limit!

Well, I think I will sign off. Be back soon with more projects. Thanks so much my lovely bloggers, I love reading your comments and I love following all of you too!


I leave you with this cutie❤
