Suzie Is Back !

Suzie, my sewing machine, has been MIA. 
(I give names to all my "stuff / things", that are dear to me)

To celebrate,
I took my machine outside
 for a little summer, fun sewing.

Ahhh, so enjoyable.

***

The following story started about a year ago.

Kimmy, my daughter, asked me to make her another apron, just like 
the one I made her four years ago.

(click on below for story)
This time she requested a very specific flowered, patterned material. 
I started looking in every fabric store.
I would see something, get excited and send her a picture.
Time after time, it wasn't quite right.
This went on and on.
I even looked when I visited Seattle!

Nothing!

We thought with each new season, something might pop up.
Fall, Winter, Spring and now Summer, nothing!

Then one day I was "touring" a thrift store.
I saw some fabric and knew it was really close!
I quickly sent off a picture to Kimmy.


She liked it!!!
BINGO!

Now, I'm going to have to tell
her where I found it!!

This is our text conversation:

Kimmy: Where did you find it?
Me: Don't laugh, a thrift store.

Kimmy: (sent several Emojies that are laughing, very hard!)
😂 😂 😂

Kimmy: (still laugh,) 
Oh Sorry!
 (still laughing!)

Kimmy: That's great!

Me: And it's 30 per cent off of $6.00!
Today, is Old People Day!

Kimmy: "Is it on a bolt?"

Me: No.  Now...don't laugh!!!!
It's a King size SHEET, 
at least I think it is!

Kimmy: (laughing hysterically!!)
That works!
It would be pretty funny if someone comes over and 
says, "Hey I use to have sheets like that."

Me: (laughing, so hard!)
I think it's a bed cover, not a sheet.
What ever it is, it's BIG.

*****

Well, I bought the bed cover, PLUS the window valance, too!

Tom's motto:
If a little is good,
A lot is better!

So, not to let anyone down,
 I now have enough fabric that I can make an apron each family member, a dress, and still have left overs.



This is the long awaited Cobbler style apron.

Taking Flight...


I just got back from babysitting over in Seattle!
I flew out on a Thursday and flew back on Monday.

Todd and Stephanie arranged my flights.
How fun!

Below are the temperatures for my flight time.
Boise was HOT!
Seattle was rather cool.


This was what I was doing the afternoon before I
went to the airport.


This is what I did just about two hours later!


My boarding pass home...



Babysitter, will travel for 
hugs and kisses!

Date Night


Top Down...

driving around...
no particular place to go... 
with my best friend...

Out in the country at sunset...


Very warm for 10 o'clock at night!



We have fun no matter what we are doing.
Love this guy!
