Umbrellas By Moda?

So, yesterday I was looking around on blogs etc.
and somehow I ended up at United Notions (Moda) site.
It has changed/gotten a little makeover. I found all sorts of  fun things to look at and do...
I'm sure you already know that they have the free patterns, and Moda Bingo game as well as
Sudoku. There is also measurement guides, graph paper with Moda logo and
the details on what is freshly delivered and coming to a store near you soon areas!

But these banners caught my eye....
Aren't they cute? 
Just thought I would share all of that. If you haven't been over there lately...
I think you should take a peak!

It has been a whole year since my son got married...
so I thought it was time to take these photos
that were taken of the "bachelor party" hike up to Half Dome in Yosemite.
and make them into a pillow for him like I promised
 The photo is blurred... or that was how I was seeing things this morning- I'm not sure.
I had made their wedding cake and thought I would make
a topper for them for their anniversary... (they didn't save the cake top)
but the heat has kicked in
and I had to rethink that idea.
I came up with a Plan B.
I had also made a gourmet luncheon for the rehearsal and included individual
handmade cherry pies. These are so fun. You just make the pies and freeze them
and when it you are ready for them just pop them from freezer to oven after taking off the lids.
(For the rehearsal luncheon I put the lids back on so they would transport well.)
Anyway, that was my Plan B... I made up a mini picnic with pies for them to take with them as they head off to the beach for the weekend.
Oh, and I got my borders on my BOM and finished Flurry too...
but that left my hands before I could get a photo of it.
Have a great weekend!
