June wrap up!

After the quilt show Patty and I relaxed with some stitching. We each made a little picture from wool using a Lori Smith pattern, I chose cats of course and Patty made a snowman scene. Mine is framed and ready to hang. A fun little project!

Mid week we made a little day trip to Jamesport Missouri, a cute town in the heart of Amish country.
Our 1st stop was for lunch at Gingrich Dutch Pantry followed by some shopping.
I was on a mission to buy our son a mega 300 hour burning candle at the Farmhouse Collection shop, they hand pour 100s of fabulous candles on site. He had envied mine from last years trip and so I had to purchase one for his new home!
One of the most unique items I came across were these metal water fountains where water came out of the birds mouths.

You can better see how they work in the little video I took. Loved them, I think I will regret not bringing one home with me for my summer garden.

And yes our son bought his 1st home! What an exciting milestone in ones life, we are so proud and happy for him! We look forward to many good times there. I could decorate the guest room "my room" ha ha, and of course bring dinners! 
Patty is now home again and getting back to her busy life. She brought me this adorable tea towel, the eyes need finished but the kittens look just like Daisy!

And speaking of Daisy, she is just as cute and fun as ever. Not a day goes by when I don't marvel at her funny little ways and cuteness :) She has easily accepted the comings and goings of our company, and if they play with her, well, they will be best of friends!

Speaking of company, we are getting ready for round two. My sister in law and her hubby are coming for the 4th of July weekend, all the way from Pittsburgh! We are so excited and looking forward to spending a fun long weekend with them. 
Wishing you all a safe and happy 4th of July and God Bless America!
