This has been such a rewarding week, the highlight of which was having my brother fly in from Ohio to surprise my mom.
We were able to take him to The Ranch (dark photo) where we enjoyed a delicious dinner with lovely surprises sent out by chef Evan.
Then we went into the Saloon to watch the country dancers.
I wish we lived closer to each other.
I have really enjoyed spending time with him and getting caught up on his life. 7 years is way to long to let pass without seeing each other. I'm not going to let that happen again.
When I wasn't spending time with Rick I was making things with the apples we picked last week.
First was applesauce.
I also made apple pies to put in the freezer to bake later in the fall when Mr. Romance is craving his favorite pie.
Seven hours standing on my feet in the kitchen did a number on my back and I was down for the count after this all day apple cooking marathon.
I picked fabrics for my Mouthy Stitches swap partner. She needs to let me know which pile of fabric she prefers. I think I got her tastes down pretty well. After I get a fabric approval, I will start designing the tote I am going to make her.
I am also making some Quilt Market samples and kits with my friend Brigitte's new fabric. You are going to love her new line called Comma for Moda. Here's a sneaky peek of a few of the fabrics.
And a little mommy bragging. Our son did a photo shoot for a clothing line and I think the photos are stunning.
I hope you have had a great week.
Thanks for stopping by,
