Fabulous Weekend!

We had such a great long weekend! Three day weekends just can't be beat! We went to our scrapbooking and quilt clubs on Saturday and then when we got home my mom called and needed us to help them put up hay. So, we grabbed the dogs and off we went - we ended up putting about 350 bales of hay in the barn with help from the neighbors as well.

On Sunday we took a trip to Jo.Ann's Fab.rics to check out their La.bor D.ay Sale - we had a little too much fun. Let's just say that our receipt was 90 inches long! Here is the pic to prove how long it was:

Sunday night and Monday we had lots of fun sewing. We did our quilt blocks for September so that those are all done and ready for next month. Here they are, however, we are not real excited about the pink fabric in them. I don't know what the person was thinking when they picked that!

We also got a pattern for these adorable little wallets. We made a couple of those on Sunday night too.

Here is MJ's:

And here is the one I made:

On Sunday afternoon MJ made herself a sewing maching cover and I worked on making a tree skirt for our Christ.mas Tree. I have ALWAYS wanted to make my own tree skirt, and finally found a pattern that I liked, so we picked out the fabric for it!

Here is the fabric we picked (you'll have to wait until I finish it to see the whole thing!

OMG, what did you buy? I love being in that store. I was there for over an hour the other day. your wallets are awesome. I love the fall because it puts me in the mood to sew, knit, etc so I can't wait to get started with my crafts.

you are getting me in the crafty mood! I need to get my sewing machine out. I love doing it but it's hard to get started! I also have some really cool decoupage projects. That's one thing I love about fall and winter - lots of crafty time!
love the little wallets!!! Cool!
