To celebrate the Fourth, this weekend, I went to church and then participated in an urban version of "dinner on the grounds."

But on Saturday, I traveled across the state to rescue my mom from her 2nd trip to ER in one day!

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

I visited two little aussie birds site, and I love the "Betsy's closet" pattern! So cute.

Cara said...

What beautiful patterns!

Danielle said...

How fun! I live one street over from Sea World, so our street really parties and watches SW's fireworks. I cooked a bananas foster upside down cake, we played with our own fireworks, and I captured the whole event with my new camera (which isn't easy to use at night, I'm finding).

Allison B said...

OK...this weekend I went to a BBQ at a friends new house....it was very nice to eat food cooked by someone else! Also saw some fireworks in our neighborhood which was fun :) Favorite item on the site? The 4 seasons block of the month. I saw that quilt at the Fort Washington Quilt show years ago and didn't get it because I didn't know how to applique yet!....one thought in general...why do I LOVE all the quilty things that come from Australia? What is in the water down there?

Melissa said...

I love the Big Top Circus Quilt pattern at two birds!

I went to the Lake and miraculously avoided a sunburn for me, my two daughters and my husband. the 3 of them are red-heads so you can imagine the amounts of sunscreen used.

Beverly said...

WOW - I would love to have that book!!! Thanks for a chance to win it. This weekend I've been cleaning for company coming in two weeks. I had to clean because I had fabic EVERYWHERE! But that's OK, I'll put it all back after the company leaves!

Beverly said...

Pick 'A' pattern. I just couldn't. I love the Poppies for you bag and the Blossom butterfly. Absolutely cannot choose between the two. Plus, what about all the other patterns and things I'm not sure how I've lived without this long? Love her shop!

momto2wasd said...

Oh, how cute! I don't usually do more than one entry, but I might have to up my odds for this one!

My boys and I enjoyed the fireworks last night! The almost 13 year old enjoyed lighting them; the 9 year old who is autistic enjoyed them w/out getting too upset by the noise and even did a sparkler with a big smile on his face; the 2 1/2 year old was cute, but did need to run around a bit by halfway through.

~ Sara ~ said...
