It's been a busy weekend!

So by now, you know who these little beauties are. That's Sofie on the right and Evie on the left. They couldn't be any more beautiful and this picture just captures my heart!

Have you ever had a weekend that is so filled with joy and happy times that you are overwhelmed and exhausted but in the best possible way? I had the best time with Amy, Regena and Denise this weekend!!!
 (and I"ll never look at helicopters the same again...just sayin) 
And as if that wasn't enough, our son and his wife moved into their very 1st home!
 It's only 5 minutes away from Amy's house! How cool it that?

There's just something so wonderful about buying your first home!
After all the stress and all the hoops you have to jump through,
to finally be able to move in is just so amazing!
It worked out great for me to be able to sew
with "the Crafty Chicas"
and then hop in the car and zoom over to the new house
and see the kids and then zoom back to Amy's beautiful home for more sewing :)

Amy has such a lovely home.
 Every inch of her home is so lovely and welcoming...
just like Amy :)
We laughed alot, shared stories, ate snacks,
 and even got some sewing done!

I was able to finish his big bag for my dearest friend Marcia.
She is such a "giver".
Always thinking about how she can help others.
I wanted to remind her to take things easy
 and to know that I love her and value her friendship :)

I also made this little bag to hold my perle cotton bubbles
and it matches the big bag I made last week. This
little bag holds about 8 bubbles and my scissors and thimble.
I actually "re-made" the bag because the first time around
it felt flimsy to me. I took the entire thing apart and added
fusible fleece to the lining to give it a bit more substance.

After our "Saturday Sewing Fest" Amy and Regena
 made dinner for us.
Fried chicken and homemade biscuits with
tomato cucumber salad and mashed potatoes and gravy!
We finished it off with Upside Down Pineapple Cake!
Jose joined us for dinner and we ate
outside in Amy's beautiful backyard.
I can't tell you how wonderful it was to spend time
 together with these fabulous women and it was fun for
Jose to get to meet them too.
He said on the way home that he can totally see
why we get along so well :)


  1. I had a fantastic time with you this weekend and enjoyed meeting your wonderful Jose. It's great to have 2 new women in my life who feel like sisters!

  2. Soooo, this weekend we are your house, right? :-)
    Why should I post, I can link right up to yours!!
    I have to go through some stuff and pics and get to postin' about all the fun myself!

  3. oh, almost forgot, sweet little girls!

  4. The babies are beautiful! I love the picture of them together. How exciting for your son and his wife to be moving into their own house. Now you'll have lots of reasons to stop by and see Amy when you visit the grandkids. I knew the four of you would have a blast together, so I'm glad you had such a wonderful weekend!

  5. How fun for them to move into their home.
    OK now are we going to get a tutorial on the cute cube type bag. I have mastered the zipper bag and tissue holder and am ready to move on.
    Glad you had a nice weekend.

  6. I am so glad that you were able to get together with your Crafty Chicas :-)! And that you were able to get over to the Torres #2 household and join in the first home ownership fun.

    I totally LOVE my tote! You say that I am a giver; you are always there for me and I LOVE you for that and many, many, many more things!

    THANK YOU :-)!
