a great Mother's Day????

Me and daughter and lil sister went out for lunch--nothing fancy--
I don't do fancy!!!!  we did go early and boy am I glad--cause about the time we were ready to leave--it filled up with a couple groups of people that were noisy and loud!!!
then we drove about 30 miles and went shopping at a Fashion Bug store--
Dawn found 4 nice new tops and I--ahhhh---I found 7!!!!  Dawn got a new purse and a necklace and scarf tooo--and I was shocked that the bill was soooo low for all that!!
we stopped for an icecream cone on way home--
and the sun was out all day today and it got to nearly 60 degrees today!!!

Now for some catching up--
I did have a 'yarn' day--
Project 1--I will be doing in class--
Love this shade of pink--

Project 2 is just one I found --
and thought it would be fun to do--
Project 3--
they had me look at a shawl that was on the back table drying--
and it was "love" at first sight--
even decided on the same color of yarn!!!

then yesterday my girl friend Denise took me to a sale at a large quilt shop about an hour drive from here--
And I decided this fabric would make some neat bags to hold my knitting projects!!!

and then there was--
I mean how cute are these---a lady was getting one of these cut when I entered the store---I could not decide between the black or the white--so I just got both of them!!!!

and as you know I have been doing the black and white bom--
and have used mirror black and whites---
look at these beauties!!!!!!  can't wait for the next block to come out!!!!

Things really really have been 'wild' around here for over a week now and with the "kid" in town--it just gets wilder!!!  and she wants to be a doin something all the time--
so if I am slow in doing posts--forgive me!!!!
But rest assured that I am thinking of all of you--when my 'poor' brain has a second!!!!
The 'kid'---
