This and That

Sassalynne has some lovely new offerings -

just one example

I love Sassalynne's pearl cotton--beautiful to look at and lovely to use.

I also like the Coton a Broder and Danish Flower Threads (which are very fine) from Hedgehog Handworks; I've used some of their linen threads which come in soft colors, but they are stiffer, less flexible threads.

Daughter Amelia has been planning parties for a while now.

Love this cake!  This was the farm party for the twins Elizabeth and Blanton, Amelia's Godchildren.

One of the tables from Megan's shower--

The garage door stuck again, and I had to call them (again) to come fix it.  This time they replaced the pin that kept working loose with one about twice as long.  That should do it!


  1. Looks like a top-notch way to celebrate a birthday! Those farm animals are darling. I want those...

  2. The parties look lovely and the colors of the pearl cotton, scrumptious.

  3. Fun parties! I hope everyone had a good time building memories :)

  4. Lovely pictures. The farm party cake looks so cute, and delicious.
    The yarns look quite yummy too!

  5. Valerie, Nancy, & Francoise--
    Isn't the farm cake fun? The kids evidently had a great time!

  6. Jenclair, what a nice post! That pearle cotton is really gorgeous!

  7. Such cute kids and cake! Love the pearle cotton thread. The colors are as yummy as the cake!

  8. Sherri - I love Sassalynne's perle cotton; she always has such lovely colors!

    Mary - Yeah, the kids are always so cute(and funny). That's Bryce Eleanor in the cowboy hat with the blue star.

  9. Looks like your summer is busy too and passing fast!
    Love both party themes too. I've been reading lots this summer too and enjoying the grands when I have them.
    Your jacket is so pretty and different. I've been wanting to do something with a denim coat that I have and think I'll patch it with some vintage fabric from my mom. That is, when I can get to it! Like so many of us I have so many ideas and so little time. Enjoy your time!!

  10. Cute photos! Looks like a fun birthday party. Didn't know you had a Max also. Ours has 2 teeth now! Smiled at the grey cat post as that's exactly how we ended up with cat number two. Sounds like he's working on your heartstrings...

  11. That perle cotton is fantastic! I love it! And wow! What a birthday cake! Looks like you're having some fun! Sorry it has taken me so long to catch up!


Good to hear from you!
