craftroom and squares...

I thought I’d show you pictures of my rearranged craft room as we chat this week. I know it still might look a little chaotic to some of you but it’s the environment I create best in.


After church yesterday I headed out to my folks for a quick visit and then a planned movie excursion for my nieces birthday.


My niece had an emergency come up so the movie date was postponed and it turned into a nice leisurely visit with my mom and dad. I took my fabric with me so mom and I spent some time cutting fabric squares and talking…

just the two of us…
a simply wonderful, time together.


I had a chance to sit and watch a little TV with my dad and to hear his childhood memories all over again. We even braved the triple digit temperatures and they treated me to a nice lunch at Mimi’s Café.


It was one of those afternoons that I knew even in the moment, I would always cherish.
A time destined to be a beautiful memory…


It was nothing special…yet it was everything.


I don’t ever want to take for granted time spent with the people I love.




Have a wonderful, memory making week,

Patty

Thank you for visiting, I did have fun making those stools. it sounds like the perfect day! How wonderful to have both of your parents still with you. I have not been to Mimi's for a long time, but I sure would like one of their grilled cheese sandwiches, oh my, they are soooo good!

Aw Patty, I just love your post. I'm so glad you had a beautiful day with your parents, and can appreciate the time with them. I don't get to see my Dad that often, but we video chat on the computer a lot, and I miss my Mom everyday. We would have had so much fun together now that I'm interested in sewing, but she is my inspiration and I know she's smiling down at me now!
Hugs,
Becca

What a nice day for you! It's always nice to just sit and chat...no plans, just enjoying the moment. :-)
Your craft room looks lovely...I'm a little jealous that you have a whole room...i have a closet. LOL :) But it's a very nice and full closet and serves the purpose! Oh, I adore your little three tiered piece you have in your room, so cute! I have a thing for anything tiered! :)
Have a great day my friend!

OH, I have Carson's room all done and will be doing a post on it, probably Monday. Blogger has not been cooperating with me this week with pictures. :0/

Looks amazing! I understand about the clutter. I make better creations when I have stuff laying all around. I like to use all my scraps too. :)

I love your craft room! My craft closet is a disaster, but it's on my list to tidy out when I get some time! But I got a new computer this week, so I used that as the inspiration I needed to tidy up my office a bit. I suppose, since I do digital scrapbooking, that my office could be considered my craft room, lol.

I enjoyed the stroll through your craft room. It's easy to see why you are comfortable creating there.
A sweet story of your afternoon with your parents. You are blessed to still have them. I'm sure your visit meant the world to them.
