Bring on More Good Stuff

The day at the beach that I got the flat tire in the driveway and cried like someone had died..OMG
After AAA came, my besties ...all 6 of them, made plugging the tire a family affair.
The 7 of us showed up at the station in two cars, the tire was fixed in a flash, then it was thrift shop time.
I found this awesome basket.
 Voila, this fake jadite butter dish to match my kitchen
 Work done on the retreat...zippy purses...to give to say thanks or feel better.

 All done and ready to give is the "I Spy" quilt.
 I made these bags for thank you presents for teachers and more.
Already sent the rest in to the teachers..forgot the pix..(:

I had done all the cutting at home, making the sewing so relaxing.
And my sweet grandboy, Evan had wound all the bobbins for me!!
A big thanks to Aunt Brandy for taking the kids on their own family beach vacation,
letting me be free to have mine.
Yesterday, I survived our 36th wedding anniversary with a little help from a friend at lunch.
Today brunched with my girl
Even in grief, life is sweet.

"Even in Grief, life is sweet" Very profound. We all must process our own hurts, disappointments, and heart breaks, but they are made bearable by the companions willing to share our tough legs of the journey. I'm glad you have sweet moments in your everydays. Hugs.

Sounds like you have some wonderful friends which are a real blessing both in life's good times and the harder times. Your drawstring bag looks great - those fabrics work well together.
