Resurfacing and Joining the World Again

It has been a really long time since I have felt like blogging.  These past few months have left me empty, not wanting to be out and about not wanting to create not wanting to clean   just blah.  Finally I am getting back to a more normal frame of mind.  I can actually get up and look forward to what the day may  bring. I am getting excited again about taking some classes and mingling with the world again.
So Colleen came in on Monday late afternoon.  Her trip to Germany had a change of plans and here she is in hot Arizona I might add.  She will be here at least 2 weeks so I set about signing us up for classes and making a few plans as my work schedule allows.  Friday I took the day off from work and we played all day.  Shopped till we dropped was a very true phrase.  Between the heat and all the shopping by the time we met Karen and Teah for dinner I was done just done!!!  Good thing Cornish Pasty has ice cold beer!!!!  We sat on the patio for dinner and a cool breeze, misters and fans cooled us off.  The food as usual was so good.  I think I have converted the girls to my favorite place.  Karen joined me in a Tangerine Beer so we were happy happy while Teah and Colleen drank their teas :)
A shopping expedition with Colleen is not complete without a stop at Merchant Square .  They were having big sales so I really lucked out.  Not only did we go once we came back and went through again!!!
Here is my finds and yes Colleen found tons of things as she flew through the store.

Laundry basket for my bathroom soon to be a different color painted with Annie Sloan Chalk paints that I picked up

 Found a booth with burlap creations  tons of burlap and I love anything burlap.  Limited myself to just two of her lovely things a burlap bag and the burlap table runner.  Now if I ever get my table cleared off the table runner will be beautiful on it.

 And my great idea that was not well thought through is this enamel top table.  Wanted it for my bathroom to use as a vanity  Yes I know not well planned out.  Don't think we can cut the hole in it to mount a sink we will see as my expert kids are thinking on it ha!!!  anyway it will receive a coat of paint to match the laundry basket that was going to hold the towels in the bathroom  In my mind it all comes together in reality not so much right now.

Saturday I was up early and ready to attend a small home workshop with Carol Wingert. "Betwinchie".  It was a great workshop in a small group setting.  Colleen as usual kept our table entertained with her tales and antics.  She came with all 64 of her squares completed.  I know huh.  Karen, Teah and I just shook our heads and smiled.  I really enjoyed the pace, the small group and the food.    OMG  Ashley again prepared the best of food including my favorite Mac and Cheese.

 Colleen and Nicole catching up
My Betwinchie board is almost done and I hope to finish it today but mundane tasks such as laundry, car washing, lawn raking, house cleaning are on the agenda first.  Looking forward to a new week with a new attitude.  I think I am finally over this slump.

So glad you are feeling better. Nicole was glad to see you. She had a wonderful time at Carol's. I use to buy Carol's kits all the time. When she went to the vintage kits, I could not afford them. Nicole wants me to go to Carol's next work shop in Oct. I hope I can make it.
Keep in touch and let me know how you are getting along.

Hey Sherry! It was so good seeing you on Saturday. You look fantastic. I enjoyed catching up with you and Colleen. Take good care of yourself and I'll see you at the next "shindig."


PS: When I went to leave my comment I saw the name Bernadette. I was like - "That's cool - that's my mama's name. Hey wait a minute! That IS my mama." :D
