Farmer's Market Sign

Farmer’s Market Sign

I hope that you all had a great Memorial Day weekend!  We went up to our cabin and also to our hunting property.  We have built an irrigation pond and are anxiously waiting for it to fill up!  They have planted a few fish in there, so the grandkids are already loving  it!

I also went to Poppyseed Projects to get a summer board, and came home with this darling print instead!  All I had to do to make this sign was to paint the board black, Mod Podge the print to the board and then add the texture cream to the front of the plaque!  So easy!

Strawberry tablecloth

Strawberry Tablecloth

I have been tending grandkids for 9 straight days and I am totally worn out!  I guess that is why you have your children when you are young, so that you can kind of keep up with them!  :)  They have been really good kids, but I am exhausted.  We went to the park, had picnics, went to our cabin overnight, had our Easter party, went to another Easter party, learned how to do a rainbow loom…made lots of bracelets, went shopping, went to church and I carpooled kids from school!   Oh and we also watched after 3 birds!  I forgot how much time and ENERGY it takes to keep up with little kids!  So my praise goes out to all of you that are raising small children…keep up the great job!

 Needless to say, I have not done many projects this last week, but I do have one very simple sewing project for you today:
