Our Weekend in Photos...

We had an amazing weekend! Friday night I went and watched my Poot in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow! They did a fundraiser for the Excelsior Springs Community Theatre by having a live reading of the The Legend! It also included the most amazing gourmet pizzas cooked in a brick oven. Yum!



Saturday evening while Poot did another performance we had craft night at my moms! I worked on my granny square purse all evening it seemed but we had a great time!



Mom taught Kerry how to crochet! She was so excited. My mom also hit the jackpot while visiting my 98 year old Great Grandma. My grandma use to receive patterns in the mail weekly and she still had all of them! We now have a huge box full of vintage apron and dress patterns! I can't wait to make one of them!!


My dad got this funny hat from a co-worker so we of course had to take some pictures!



Today we spent the afternoon at the Maple Leaf Festival!




They had a quilt show which housed some amazing detailed quilts. These were my favorites:





*The first quilt was made with suits and ties from the men in their family. I so want to do that quilt! What a great family heirloom!The last quilt was made using vintage hankies which I love!

Well...it was was a busy weekend. I am going to curl up with a cup of hot apple cider and watch a few episodes of Mad Men.

How was your weekend?
XOXO

Hi Amber!
It looks like you had a great weekend! I love the heart quilt...is it made with old ties?? Because I have a large stash of old ties and have been wondering what to make of them...
