What I Did Saturday

I've been so very busy over the last few days. The highlight of last week was when the very pleasant Ornery's Wife, along with Ornery himself, came for a visit.

Aren't they sweet? We've known each other for maybe a year via our blogs, but never met-- till now. It was a wonderful visit, and the exciting thing is that we don't live so very far apart that we can't sometimes do it again. It's something to look forward to.

Also this week JD's mother was here for a few days, which is always a joy, and that brings me to what I did Saturday:

That is a small carry bag, and inside of it is:

Four cloth shopping bags.

JD's mom had ordered a set of bags from me and pre-paid quite some time ago and I hadn't gotten them done yet. But now that she was here, I invited her to help pick out her own fabric, with LovelyDaughter's help, and that worked very well. And then I spent much of the day Saturday cutting and sewing, and had the set ready for her Sunday before she left to drive six hours home!

I also have another set exactly like it that is about two thirds finished--each length of fabric makes two bags, and it's almost as fast to sew up both at once as to make just one--and today I received a call from someone who would like to buy that set. Now I've gotta get busy and finish!

And I love them so! Thank you again. So glad I got to see you, even if it was briefly and I'm pleased that you had a great time with your friends.

WooHoo! You go, girl! I wondered when you'd get sewing again! I was also wondering why you don't have a permanent work station to work at so you can leave it out. Those crafty guys of yours should be able to put something spectacular together for you in no time!

We so enjoyed our visit with you. It was such a delight to meet you all and see for real what your life is like. You are blessed!
