A Sewing Lesson.......






Yesterday I had the honor of spending a day learning from the master, oh, I mean Sharon aka Cupcake.....I went over to pick up my table topper that she so beautifully quilted with daisies, and she gave me a lesson in how to do bindings. Now Im a doll maker, I can make my own clothes, but this quilting is new to me......but between my sistas I think Im going to make it!!!! She also gave me a lesson in rotary cutting cuz I think she thought I was gonna cut a finger off or something.......I learned a lot yesterday!!! We also cut the squares I need for Miss No Blogs class/pajama party thats coming soon.....that girl can cut, she cut 100 squares before I could blink!!!!! No wonder she makes 10 quilts a week, I never saw anything like it!!!!! She treated me like a queen, she had snacks out, and a yummy pizza from CPK........
I hope she got to bed early for the trip she and Beth are taking, you can read about it over at her blog.
We finally picked most of the peaches from our tree, I have given out several bags, and they are so good........I made a cobbler from Paula Deens recipe and omg, thats all Im gonna say! Im going to make another one tonight and I have frozen enough peaches to keep us in cobblers for quite a while.
Heres my CVS score this week.........I did have to pay about 10 bucks out of pocket, but I also got 10 bucks back in free money......so basically I got about $50.00 worth of stuff for free........
So its hot and humid here, Im headnig over to the new brides house to swim later.....stay cool out there!!!!

Can you believe Beth and Sharon didn't take us with them? I can't ... I told Beth, ya'll just swing by East Texas and pick me up!
