A week after returning home from Ohio, I was off to Miami, FL.
Just a quick business trip.
I did find a few spare moments for stitching in the sun and listening to the surf.
I worked on "A Token of Spring" from the Little Sparrow PinKeep Club by Scattered Seed Samplers.
I thought it was definitely a beautiful sign when this mourning dove came to roost on the balcony while I stitched.
I had to return to Chicago quickly as I was meeting my husband and sons to attend an awesome concert
I don't know which generation was more excited ~ the parents (us) or our kids!
After Joan Jett and the Blackhearts warmed us up, then The Who played for a solid 2 1/2 hours.
They played all the greatest hits and had the crowd on their feet all night.
It was so awesome to be sitting in the 6th row.
A wonderful vantage point.
In addition to Roger Daultry and Pete Townsend, our younger son gave a full run down of the band that included Simon Townsend (Pete's brother), Zak Starkey (Ringo Starr's son) and Pino Palladino, bassist extraordinaire.
Then Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam got on stage and rocked the crowd.
It was an awesome night to remember.
This weekend I finished my Rebekah L. Smith class project!
I am so thrilled with how it turned out.
I love the backing fabric that Rebekah provided.
And I added a little ticking tag and wool heart.
And finally for the little giveaway.
It isn't much, but someone may like it...
A spool of vintage ribbon from the Brown Rabbit, some of the antique crochet trim, shirting and reversible wool found at the antique mall and an issue of Early American Life magazine. This is the last holiday issue. Once home I realized that I already had it. The wonderful thing about this issue is that it includes a pattern by Rebekah L. Smith!
Isn't this sewing book sweet!
As always, this little giveaway is open to everyone. Simply leave a comment on this post or send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Giveaway" in the subject line.
