Wow it's Friday and this week has surely flown by. Trying to capture those last fun days before school starts back and everything gets dictated by a school calendar......Oh I'm not ready yet:))

I am sew thrilled to share a wonderful shop from a friend of mine named Taylor called Cutestitch from Etsy.com. Taylor has the most adorable shop and once you check it out you will realize that "Cutestitch" is indeed the perfect name. I always adore my convos from Taylor as she and I both love Amy Butler fabric and her designs....Fun fun fun! Here is a bit about Taylor from her shop:


Welcome everybody to the reopen of my shop. In the next few weeks I will be adding a mixture of personalized items as well as hair bows. I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer last year (2007) shortly after Thanksgiving and had to close down my shop to begin treatment. Although I am not completely done with my treatment, I have been itching to get back to creating more adorable stuff. So please check back again.


Taylor, I am so thankful that you are doing great and your shop is wonderful! Please visit Taylor's lovely shop and purchase one of her pretties today!

Belmont Drive-in Movie What Fun!




Wow I have to admit I didn't even think Drive-In movies existed anymore, did you? Not in our area, anyway and not kid friendly, let's just say:)) Well this one is just a wonderful place for the entire family. It is located in Belmont, North Carolina just outside of Gastonia and is owned by Peggy Lawing. I first heard about this wonderful place on our local North Carolina Traveler program and thought wow that would be neat for the boys but it was the dead of winter and it didn't happen.......A month ago on a camping trip, another father told my Hubby about it again and it reminded me. We quickly did the research and found out exactly where it was and went the next week........What fun, as many folks as you can load into the car for $8.00 per car!! And they have a good old fashioned concession stand too............As you can see it's about letting kids run around and tailgating.........Before the movie starts, kids can run and around and play in the large grassy area in the last picture. Once the movie starts, you can tune your radio into the movie or listen to the fun old speakers for your car:) Some folks sit on their tailgates, while others park into comfy soccer chairs behind their cars...... I admit my youngest gets a little tired before they're done but since he's in the car, naps are no problem. If you live near Charlotte, please check it out!! You and your kids will love it!

Wow I'm Back and it's August 12 oh my goodness!






Where has the summer gone, guys!! I can't believe it's already August 12 th and my sons start back to school next week.......It just seems like yesterday that my oldest was attending his 5th grade graduation.......Wow!!

Well I took a nice little vacation to visit my Mom with the boys and we had quite an adventure riding the Amtrak back home...........It was great fun but very long so the day after we were already ready for some downtime.........

I have been busy sewing some new fobs this past weekend and here are 2 of them I just listed in my shop..........The first is one of my favorite fabrics from Michael Miller, his Dumb Dot in Pink. This is one gorgeous Pink too, really rich and just stunning. I decided to use brown but boy that was hard choosing because it would look awesome on lime or black too........

The next is a really pretty Pink Scroll fun fabric that I found in my stash and simply adore..........Again a rich bubblegum pink and I chose brown for this one as well...........

I hope you love both of them! Thanks for catching up but it will take me a while to get really caught up!!:)) Should we need to rest from our vacations:))LOL
