Another busy weekend and week....

On Friday afternoon I got off work early and drove up to Cartersville to meet with Hannah and Eva as we work on the plans for her 16th birthday masquerade party. I think this is going to be a fun one!!(Check out the cool old building she is having it at! I love it!)

After that meeting I went by the civic center where they were having a quilt show (I went right as they were closing, so all I had time for was to quickly run through and get a few pictures.) There was a wide variety of styles and patterns on display. I just love quilts!!

Late Friday evening was the rehearsal and then all day was spent at Stonewall Manor for the wedding of Erin and Justin Gravitt. It was a beautiful day! (Here is their cake!)

Sunday my mom came over and we did some rearranging and clearing out of "stuff"...I still have more to do, and I need to hang some of the artwork we rearranged, but it feels good to have a change.
(Friday I found this pillow at TJ Maxx, and I wanted to buy it something fierce...but it was pretty expensive & I had already blown the budget on a gorgeous gray winter wool coat! (I will show pic's when I have the weather needed to wear it!!) I need to find some similar fabric, so I can make some pillows for our couch!)

Monday evening on my way home I saw this beauty! (It was amazing, so bright and you could see it all the way from one side to the other-with a faint double in there as well!! I had stopped at the grocery store on my way home and everyone was in awe and snapping photos with their phones! It really made me smile, not only because of the beautiful & amazing rainbow, but also because of the reaction from everyone-young and old alike-when seeing it!)

Then I worked on getting some fabric cut and sewn together for a baby quilt...I need it for a shower this weekend! Yikes! We will see if I get it done in time!!

Tuesday I went to Andi's for a "Girls night in" party and we dyed some doilies that Nicole had picked up, and did some Sharpie tye-dye. (We all got a little high off of the fumes-but it was fun!!) I did my tye-dye work on a piece of white fabric...I am not sure what I want to do with it yet..maybe a mini quilt back, or I can fussy cut out the designs and use it in a quilt!

Don't wash it. Mine basically erased. Bic is NOT better than Sharpie when it comes to dying.

I saw that rainbow too.

Groovy quilts!

Those quilts, and that rainbow are all beautiful.
I can't wait to hear more about Hannah's birthday bash.
