Great weekend

Well went away for the weekend with hubby and what a wonderful time we had.....Ya know I love to go away it gives me an opportunity to rest take cooking class or as this weekend went sew....yup believe it or not I took my sewing machine with me and spread out all day Saturday and did what I don't do best alone cut and sew now mind you i was on that machine off and on for lets see from 8:30 till 4ish...... I'm not your most creative quilter and the only reason i quilt is because i love the camaraderie and the friends I have made it is like my pack of gals say I measure 15 times cut once and it still comes out wrong but gotta love the act......I started to quilt because the little gal at work wanted to go take a class 7 years ago and of course who else but hands up and volunteer for anything Lani I will do it with you so your not alone lani went....Well she dropped out and I kept coming back.....Now mind you i love to quilt i just have no concept of color can not measure my way out of anything and must i go on half of you are saying poor thing she should take up something else....well lets review my vast array of hobbies....like Golf yes i took golf lessons for a year and never ever even went on a course the instructor said that he had so much fun with me he hated to see me stop even though i could not golf .....what else OK collections lets talk collecting well i have shared with you my vast collection of cooking books the shelves are ready to collapse....and then there are the juice glasses yes I started with a couple but then kept getting more and more look at the shelves why they are not even on display for gosh sakes...

Then we have the button era yes I decided that buttons would really be a good investment as well as something I may use for something someday somehow jessssussss ...so for weeks on end I'm on eBay mind you bidding my little heart out till the day i saw a bulk bunch of button and i was hey i need those well 200.00 dollars later and over 5000 buttons yes count them and that does not include the hundreds I already sent to Heather Anne in Oakland to unload them she said she would send back what she did not use i said give them to friends......I could bore you with more of my adventures but i think this is enough for tonight and what the heck were we not talking about my weekend ......So if you are ever looking for that SPECIAL button you know who to call......unless I'm at my meeting of buttons anonymous......Well god bless and I will talk to ya tomorrow Monday woohoo

Lani, sooooo good to have you back. Love reading your blog. Now you took your sewing for the weekend, what did hubby do? Bet he is a gem with a sense of humor like yours. I will remember you if I need buttons. Button, button whos got the button? Wasn't there a game like that?

That's hilarious! And buttons is something I don't have. I'm looking forward to inheriting my mom's button collection. Or hey, maybe even your collection. haha

Collect Buttons! That's good. They're small. Don't take up much space. Can be useful. Can be pretty. Most of the time don't cost much. Could be worse.
