Is it Tuesday already?

here's a few new things and what I've been busy with

for the 3rd weekend in a row, we did not go to any yard sales. hard to believe, I know!

On Saturday we drove to Oklahoma City. We went to several places including the Old Paris Flea Market.

We had fun walking around and looking at all the different things. We used to shop there 20 or so years ago and it has changed a little since then but not much. We did not find much we wanted to buy though.

Jeff did buy 2 hats - pretty good quality for their low price.

Sunday morning, I made oatmeal pancakes with fresh strawberries and blueberries - yum!
the pancakes are a Betty Crocker recipe.


My friend Elizabeth and her husband are moving next week into a smaller home. She has been doing lots of cleaning out as she packs ups.
She thought I would like this cute Christmas fabric and little fabric and patterns for our grandbaby - also named Elizabeth.

She is right, I like them a lot and little Elizabeth said she does too :)
not really, not yet anyway.Summer means lots of clothes changes and that means lots of laundry. We prefer the softness of machine dried clothes. But the dryer heats up the house and uses lots of energy. What works for me is kind of "Hybrid Drying."
I start our clothes in the dryer for just about 10 minutes, then I hang them up on clothes hangers and let them finish drying hanging in a doorway. They are still soft and don't really wrinkle since they are hanging up.


Miss Elizabeth is with me today and this is what she thought about taking a bath and putting on a pretty dress. Other than that, it has been a good day.

hope you all are having a good day too.

  3. Great RoRo thinks Elizabeth wants to be picked up and cuddled and I expect Grandma Rhonda did just that! Her dress is adorable!

  5. I'm going to be in OKC this weekend. I wonder if I'll have time to make it to that flea market. Sounds like something right up my alley.

    What great fabrics. I'm sure you'll do something very creative with them.

    I've always put some things on hangers to dry and others go in the dryer. I think I'm going to try your method because we, too like the soft feel of clothing after it's been in the dryer. Thanks for the tip.

    Poor baby Elizabeth. It must certainly have been the bath that upset her and not that cute dress. It's adorable.

  6. Hello,
    Sounds like you have been busy. That will make a great picture to give her boyfriend in about 20 years. LOL
    I look forward to seeing what you make for Elizabeth.:)
    Hugs,
    Elizabeth

  7. Awww...well it couldn't have been the dress she's wearing! It's adorable! ;)

    I dry all my clothes like you do...I have a pole for hanging above my washer and drier. I never have gotten the appeal of line drying outside..all the dragging in and out and hanging with clips...not to mention the stiffness. ha.

  8. Elizabeth is a cutie even when upset!
    Nice fabric....... I use to hang clothes out all the time--except towels but have gotten away from it.
    I hang stuff on door ways like that and I have a shelf in laundry room to hang stuff from. In kids bath the shower rod.

  9. I do that sometimes with my laundry too.

    Elizabeth just couldn't understand why you had to go and spoil everything with a bath! :D

  10. Oh.. poor baby! She looks very upset! :-) I hope you had fun with her. There is nothing like a grandbaby! You're going to have fun with your sewing. That was nice of your friend to bless you with the material.
