Unless you live in Kansas City, you may not realize that The KC Royals baseball team has waited 29 long years for our turn to be in the playoffs. It's been a wild week for sports fans here in KC. I'm even dressing the part of a fan today! Let's Go Royals!In between sports TV, I've been sewing a little. Here's the Union Jack that Mary asked us to make for her Mid-Century Modern Bee block this month. The tutorial is found on the Molli Sparkles blog.
In case you've wondered, I've gotten out my own MCM blocks and started working on them again adding an 18 inch churn dash and three 12 inch ones to the mountain of six inch blocks. I'm hoping to start putting them all together this weekend.
Linda is part of the Mid-Century Modern Bee as well. She and I had fun meeting up last week at one of Kansas City's newest quilt shops, Modern Maker. We piled up our purchases and took a photo. It will be a favorite shopping spot from now on!
Another special friend, Irene, celebrated her 102nd birthday last week. Irene was my mother-in-law's best friend and a lovely lady. My sister-in-law, Kay, and I had such a sweet time visiting with her in her home. Isn't she darling... I want to be like her when I grow up!
Last month, my husband and I vacationed in northern California. We ran across this great idea in a tiny costal town. I love it!
We stopped for a burger in this fun pub. Do you wonder, as we did, how they get all those bills onto the ceiling?
That's one way of hanging on to your money!
