Every year our Lake Association has its annual Labor Day Fundraiser. The funds raised are used to maintain the weed harvester. They have a rummage sale, bucket raffles, food, beer garden, music and kids games.
Many years ago I had the bright idea to make a quilt for one of my bedrooms that had an 'Americana' theme. Like so many of my good intentions, that project went by the wayside.
When we moved here, the quilt top moved with us.
One of my neighbors always donated a quilt to the Lake Association Fund Raiser. I approached her, asking if she would be interested in finishing off the quilt that I had started. And she certainly was!!
Here is the finished product. She has a fantastic sewing machine! Look at the little star stitching she did on the border.
I went over to the rummage sale on Saturday, they had lots of everything!! And so do I, so I didn't buy much. I sure had fun looking at the treasurers that other's discard.
I wonder if I could win at this version of Trivia Pursuit! Its the Baby Boomer's version!!
This shoe made me laugh, I could just visualize some young gal walking down our gravel roads wearing these fancy shoes!
I did find something to buy!!! I purchased this chair for either myself or if my daughter wanted it I would give it to her.
Well, she really liked it; and decided it would be perfect in her living room. I am going to re-cover the seat with a tan chenille.
Unfortunately, she is not getting the chair until after my knee surgery. It sits nice and high and will be easy for me to get in and out. She's OK with that.
And that't the way it is...............
