She is very creative + an endless talent for making things!!! She had a scrap box / Summer giveaway & I was happy when I heard from Rebeckah, that I was a winner of her scrap box ...
I received a box at the post office, and when open .... all these goodies popped out!
Thank you Rebeckah!!!

Oh what fun --- have my iron plugged it ...

Jasper keeping my sewing machine seat warm ....
I won a giveaway & the box of goodies arrived [photos to follow in another post].
Last night, DH and I went into Chicago, listening to the hockey game
on the radio ..... went to the
[tee shirt -- gotta have one!]
City Winery [couple blocks from Harpo Studio].
We went to the 2nd, 10pm show
I could listen to their music all night! Anyhow, got so
swept up in her voice, the band, their
sound - and forgot to snap a photo while they were performing. First song --- Sweet Jane.
They performed a couple songs from Kennedy Suite, their Nomad series,
and song, West of Rome [I think that was the title], song from their
first album, song name escapes me [the album before Trinity Session], and of course
Trinty Session album songs. Walking after Midnight just rocked.
Nice venue, great sound, perfect seats.
Wine, rose, was ok [I'm spoiled by Oliver Winery].
Didn't have much traffic to deal with.
Finally a sunny/windy day --- took Tori's stuffed toys
OK, my toys, too --- outside.
Once back inside - all fresh!!! Now to arrange in the
doll beds and top of wardrobe. Such a fun task to
end the week-end.
Lafayette Lacemakers is having a Carrickmacross Lace Class
following their next meeting.
So, I obtained a couple second hand books - which arrived - and I enjoyed going thru ...
Think I'll do better with some hands-on instruction.
Keeping my fingers crossed Mother Nature cooperates. Looking forward to the class.
I had made a few bracelets & of course my Mom's broke.
Guess I need more beading instruction!!!! This time I added double jump rings.
Fixed my Mom's bracelet - and mailed it ... what a week-end.
Time goes quickly.

I had some freshwater pearls, purchased from AIC and Michael's. Strug them with seed beads and completed five bracelets. A lot of fun!
Probably should have used jump rings .... maybe I'll remember next time.
Isn't this neat???
Thx GF!!!! So Charming!!!!!
