Needle Books and Hanging Baskets

We had a great holiday weekend here.  My Sis came down for the weekend...brought me  3 hanging baskets and  a geranium.  A nursery near her had a big sale, for $15.00 you could fill a cart to 8" above the cart with plants.  They are really pretty and was a fun surprise.

We played in the studio most of the weekend.  We each made a needle book.  Mine is on the left and hers is on the right.  


Deb at the sewing machine.

We did take some time to visit one of the antique malls here.  She  found some really pretty old gift wrapping paper......and of course some lace and linens, neither her nor I can pass them up. 

I finally did get an Etsy shop set up, it is on my side bar.  I have been working on some new things to put in it.  Hopefully they will be added in near future.

I have been having trouble with my Internet Explore browser.  I downloaded IE9 and now it keeps telling me something is wrong with the site and it has to be closed and reopened.  It is so annoying, I have been trying to find a fix for it.  May have to go back to my older version.

All is quiet here at the lake after the holiday, so I am going to go out on the deck and enjoy it.  Have a great day.

Hugs, Jackie

Hi Jackie, both needle books turned out very beautiful!
I had problems with IE in connection with my blog too. With Firefox everything works fine though.
