Friday Finish!


With the holiday, I was too busy on the weekend to do any crafting and then cleaning up and catching up, after the holiday. I cannot stand just sitting and watching tv at night, I have to have something to keep my. hands busy, so I worked up a simple project.

The design is from Kelley Belfast's sunflower and cat design, that I did before, but I separated and made two small pieces for lavender pillows. I have to store a lot of things, so I can always use them in my stash to keep it fresh smelling.

The holiday also means, 4 birthdays. The kids took Bill out for his night and then we took them all to Newport, to enjoy a day at the park. The boys flew kites and explored the ruins from an old mansion, as well as some time on the small beach area.

Afterwards we headed to Fort Adams and walked along the path by the water, to the forts.

For Memorial Day, they had Boots on the Ground and free admission to the fort. 

This is the main area, with each surrounding state, represented. 

Another area was just for Rhode Island and we visited Bill's Second Cousin who died during a flood. It was a wonderful day with the family and a wonderful way to honor those who gave up their lives to protect us.

I hope you all had a nice week and fun plans for the weekend.

I absolutely adore your Kelly Kitties!!! There is just something about her cats that I find totally irresistible. Your "rendition" is fabulous. Looks like more great adventures. The ruins of the old mansion and the old fort both sound/look fascinating.... There is so much history in your area. The boots on the ground make an incredible and sobering statement. ~Robin~

I look back at all the wonderful times I enjoyed with my grandparents, but nothing compared to the adventures your little guys are getting, What a lucky family you have! Your little kitties are so sweet.
