On Saturday I went to Davis to pick up my friend Diane and we drove to Winters to the outdoor quilt festival. It was a beautiful warm breezy day...just right for viewing hundreds of quilts blowing in the wind outside! The highlight of the day was seeing actual quilts from Gee's Bend! This one struck me for being so colorful!
wonderful creations of so many talented hands.
His style was not unsimiliar to her own, although with a definite masculine flare!
This is the back of one of his many quilts in the show!
From there I drove to the home of my daughter/SIL and grandchildren.
It was instantly apparent that my grandma's bag is never ever
going to go out of style!
We did our usual art projects, torn paper pictures; paper airplanes;
felt gluing pieces too.
They had been my daughters when she was a little girl.
I was about to take them to the thrift store to donate, but DH stopped me.
So instead I took them with me yesterday and the kids, who had not
shown much interest in them at our house
suddenly swooped them up with love and said YES they wanted them! So Lizzy the Lion and Poly Bear have a new home!
This photo is on it's side, but shows the men repairing my grandson's guitar.
As usual we had music time with grandpa playing guitar and singing and the kids joining in on drums and tambourines. GD did ballet, GS picked out a song (really!) on the keyboard!
