A Perfect Day

Today was just Perfect. A wonderful breeze and sunshine :) Thank you Lord! I mowed the front yard and finally weeded the flower garden! On Friday, my friend "J" came over and we "made goodies"...I made the treasures above. "J" helped me with the pin keeps and cut out the Scottie dog...I "tried" my hand with the stitching.

The treasures above and below "J" made...aren't the baby shoe just Darling!!! The flowers are pins to wear. J is very good at crafts and LOVES to SEW!!!

We had a great time together. 2 minds work better than 1 (mine) !!

Just a few goodies...I KNOW...I wasn't going to go to estate sales...REALLY!!! Something just HAPPENS!!! The "support" group meetings will start soon :) LOL

The weather was just too much this past week and I didn't have energy to do much...neither did little SWEET PEA...THE END!!! She sleeps in the funnest positions.
Busy at HQ, Kailee for 2 days, putting the "finishing touches" on my room and then it's the weekend again!!
Thanks for being my blogging friends :) I hope you are enjoy the summer. The BIG MN State Fair starts Aug 26th ... a sure sign that summer is winding down! I have seen a couple of tree leaves changing color!!!
Take care!
Happy and Thankful,
Deb :)

Cute creations! Yes it's been hot and I love Sweet Pea's sleeping position!

OMGosh Deb.. That picture of Sweet Pea is just too funny. What a crazy puppy you have. I did make it to Rogers and visited the antique shops they have there and I also stopped in Anoka on my way home to visit the shops open for their once a month sales. Bought a few embellished gift cards & tags in one of the shops in Anoka that I'll share later in the week after I get some decent pictures of them. Didn't find much else, at least nothing I could afford. Everything I liked was either way over my budget or had that annoying little tag on that said "NFS".

Oh no, now I am so jealous! I love the fair! About 4 years ago I went home just for the fair and the fried cheese curds! My Mom leaves Mn tomorrow to come to Florida, she said the weather was hot anyway she might as well head down early for the season, OOPs now you said it is nice! Love your little treasures you and your friends made!

Nice to read about your perfect day, Deb. That Scottie is cute with the stitching around the edges, and so are the pin cushions. I want to try making one of those some day.

Cute pic of Sweet Pea :o)

So cute and I love "The End"!

Theresa said...

Sweet creations! I love the little flower pins and pin cushions! Great creative day for two friends!

That little Sweet Pea is just as cute from the back as she is from the front:)

Enjoy your busy week my friend! HUGS!

i'm usually a loner when it comes to making my cards but a few times a year DD and I go to crops and make it a mother-daughter weekend.

Scrap for Joy said...

I love the opportunity to hang out with friends and "make stuff". I love your pin keeps and scottie dog. And dogs...yours crack me up! Sweet Pea is the funniest. I've only been to one sale this summer. The ads aren't even attracting me. (and there could be some guilt for me about how much I already have...hahahaha)
The heat has been oppressive here, too and no rain. Our lawn crunches when you walk on it!!
I think I'm ready for fall Deb!

Joy said...

Sweet crafts and what is lil Sweet Pea up to..hehehe!

Debbie said...

Isn't sewing with a friend fun. Sweet Pea is such a cutie. Just the thought of mowing or weeding breaks me out in a sweat. Here in East Texas we are sweltering in over 100 degree heat.

Dogwood said...

Marina Capano said...

Donna Lynn said...

So happy that it cooled down for you and the dogs! Your Sweet Pea is just so darling, you must get a huge kick out of her antics!

We are now having your hot weather, it has been 90-100' for the past four days, yukky!

AngelMc said...

Love all your creations...but I luuurrrvvve Sweet Pea. It's a good thing that I can't reach through this computer and steal her...CiCi and GinGin said to tell her hi, but stay on that side of the computer 'cause they are jealous.

Jean said...

Sweet Pea is just too cute!

Hi Deb, By your last photo my smile had become giggles! What a dog you have, too cute. I love your Scottie and pincushions. The color you chose is my favorite! I often think I need another brain during my days, so glad you have an "extra"! Have a great week ahead! Elizabeth

Judi said...

Hi Deb
What fun you and your girlfriend had making the cute pincushions and pins. I would have joined!

Your puppy does sleep in a strange position *lol*...isn't that funny. Abby my kitty does too...sometimes I wonder how she is so must wonder the same.

It sounds like you have a busy week. We don't want to talk about the end of summer coming anytime soon..
have a wonderful rest of the day
