A quick share ... last weekend, I took the girls to a Safe Kids event sponsored by the hospital I work at:
This was their most important booth to visit :)
Since my friend Vicki and I signed up for The
Buggy Barn's "Crazy" class in November,
she and I went on a road trip this past weekend...
The Buggy Barn in Reardon, Washington.
A place I've wanted to visit for a very long time,
especially since it's only a few hours from my home.
Our "official" greeter ...a real sweetie who loves apples.
This is a shot of my friend Vicki (dark hair, blue sweater)
and the inside of the "Barn" ... while I took more photos,
I actually forgot my camera so was using my iPod for pictures ...
better than nothing as this point, I thought,
though the pictures of the inside
didn't turn out good enough for me to share.
Vicki wanted a specific kit ...
Donna was gracious enough to
dig in the cabinet to find one :)
... they had a few to choose from.
I chose these beautiful Buggy Barn fabrics:
To make this quilt pattern:
Crazy Goose Chase from Certifiably Crazy
by the Buggy Barn.
Wish me luck ... lots of it!
Then, I just had to pick up this material as I had
seen it many times on the internet:
and now I have the perfect table runner
pattern in mind for this selection :)
Then, Sunday was my day with the girls, so took
a very nice Sunday drive to feed the ducks...
They had lots of fun,
and I had more fun watching them :)
I wish I could say my Sunday ended on the good note here ...
My Bernina's foot control pedal finally gave up the ghost ...
Hours later and after a paniced phone call to my mom ...
I've found another foot control pedal and now
wait very unpatiently for it to arrive in the mail.
Oh, my wonderful Sunday didn't end there ...
my youngest, who has been complaining of a tummy ache
and sore throat since last Thursday, chose this evening to
start throwing up ... okay, so maybe she's not "playing"
sick to just avoid school...
major mommy-guilt trip here
So, I cancel my 8 am dentist appointment and
email my boss of three months that I will be
staying home from work today ...
you all know how that guilt trip ...
girls' dad is out of town...
Granted, while most times I'd really, really
appreciate some down time at home, especially
as I haven't been feeling top o' the trees either ...
well, new job means no paid leave yet ...
Well ... we can still laugh, right?
So, until next time,
happy hugs and warm hearted wishes!!
