Out of Season???

Sunday night my daughter and I went to one of those home supply centers to get some patio furniture and a new BBQ.  I found a table and chair set I really liked the style of, athough it was just seating for four.  No problem, I'll get two sets and they can sit on either side of the patio door and look cute.  Had a real nice, young sales guy who went to check stock.  The only one left nationwide was their display model according to their computer system.  The reason?  They "opened" their summer season way early this year and it is now on to fall items!  I glanced around and, sure enough, there were actually a few Halloween items out!  So I ended up with display models (half-price, can't complain there) of that set and another set with a low table with a firepit and four chairs.  The only problem is -- they don't match!  Guess I'll check the fabric stores soon and try to find matching or at least coordinating fabric. They are going to sit on opposite ends of the yard so hopefully they won't look too bad out there in the meantime.  Delivery is this morning -- maybe my daughter will BBQ dinner tonight!  Remind me next month to pick up my Christmas cards and decorations!

My New Ride

My daughter and grandson got new bicycles -- so I had to have one, too!   Me on a bike -- not a pretty picture -- but it will be fun riding the bike trails behind with them.  My longest ride ever was 16 miles but that was 40 years ago!  If my first ride at this age is .16 miles, I'll be happy.  Get a good look at the nice paint on it now -- who knows what it will look like after my first adventure.

Off to work on another Grandmother's Flower Garden piece.

More Flowers

3 more flowers for the Grandmother's Flower Garden made and one in process.  I finally found some binding fabric for a quilt ready to be bound -- just in time to have it on my lap in the summer weather!
