We just returned home from a 9 day trip to visit the children and their families. We spent 3 days with our son and his family who lives 3 hours away. Then we traveled on to Mississippi to see our daughter and her family’s new home and life there. I loved being with all my grandchildren and miss them already!
The only thing stitchy to share is this little pillow I made for my daughter before we took our trip. This is a free pattern from Melisa at Pinker and Punkin blog spot. She shares lots of adorable free x stitch patterns there.
I found this beautiful quilt at a local thrift store before we made our trip.
My daughter ‘needed’ it, so we took it to Mississippi to gift to her. An Instagram friend, who specializes in old quilt restoration, estimated it to be from the 1920’s.
Here’s a photo in its new home. We actually restaged it to the rail on the right, so as not to block Annabelle’s view from her bedroom. I didn’t get that photo, but it looks great there.
Very few photos were taken while we were away, but here’s one of Annabelle with the cupcakes she helped her Mama make.
This week will be a rest and recovery week. It took us 13 hours to drive home from Mississippi, with our sweet 14 year old dachshund riding in our laps. 😳 we all need our rest!!
