Last picture at the Quiltsmiths

Aren't these "babies" just the cutest? They were in the back room at the Quiltsmith's Quilt store. She didn't make them but one of her customers did. They are weighted to the same weight as a real newborn.I forgot what she said the hair was made out of, but it felt real, when I first saw them , I was stunned, I thought "how quiet those babies are, and both awake, then I realized they were dolls..... Silly Me****VBS****

Our event (show) was cancelled yesterday, due to rain, so we came on to Mo.It actually quit raining about 15 minutes after we left and didn't rain again until we pulled in the motel parking lot. Just so we could get wet, I guess.........

It took us about 5 hours to get here, but was nice to get here and be able to have 2 full days off work,DH has gone today to get some work done on the trailer and I am here in the room. BUT, it has been a nice day, I have my sewing machine............ Have needed to let out the waist and hem DH's uniforms, all 5 of them, have now got that done, and think maybe tomorrow I will sew some more on GGS quilt. I am getting itchy to get the top finished , at least. I have sooooo many projects I want to get done. I just need to always bring my sewing machine in the motels and sew when I have a few minutes. DH sure doesn't mind bringing it in for me, so that is what I am going to try and make myself get in a habit of doing. Don't you think that would be a great idea?????

Hope someone will come visit, would love to see you.

I am looking forward to Thursday, the place we will be is a shopping mall, with LOTS of stores, I plan to do some shopping, I need some new shoes really badly, so hope I can find something that looks nice and be comfy at the same time. I really have a hard time finding comfy shoes. I guess that's cause I really don't like to wear shoes, never have. I will be glad when I grow up***VBS***

Hope all of you are nice and comfortable and dry, its very cool here and damp, so that made it especially nice to be able to be at the sewing machine, even if I was mending ugh...

Take care, and keep on Quilting Memories, Bobbin

Have you tried Easy Spirit shoes? I have had pretty good luck with them and they last a long time. Those dolls are darling! Ruth

I thought those babies were real at first glance! How precious. You two take good care, lots of traveling goin' on for you both. I like the idea of the machine coming in with you, sounds like a good plan. I prefer bare feet, too!

Just bought myself some summer shoes/sandals to wear on the days I work and am on my feet all day. Just wore them today and the feet feel pretty good. They are Clarks and the style is Sunbeat. They're not cheap but worth it if I can keep my feet from hurting. I went looking for Privo sandals which is the brand of my winter work shoes. They have been great. But didn't find any Privo sandals in colors that I liked. I might order them online. Good luck. Glad you're getting some sewing done!
