~VA Road Trip ~

I have been busy this week getting everything ready for an unexpected trip to Virginia...I got a call from my mama early last Sunday morning  letting me know that the Lexington Garden Club was sponsoring a home tour of some of the wonderful old log cabins in the area this weekend...A couple cabins date from the 1700's and I think the rest are in the 1800's...Now honestly, how on earth could I say no to this? All I have been doing in the past is riding by...snapping photos...and drooling heavily while looking at the outside...Now I'll get to go inside...and walk around their gardens...Yippee!!
*****
Of course, there is always some little snag...this time it was five red homespun curtains that I had promised to make for my sweet mama way back in February...I don't know about you, but I hate to do something that I have to do...So I put them off until last Sunday after she called ...That's when I got around to cutting them out and I just finished sewing them yesterday!!  The good that came out of this is  an extra set of curtains. I changed my mind and made them completely different than I had originally planned...Instead of lining them with a contrasting homespun (they were going to be reversible)...I just doubled them and had enough material for ten curtains...Yeah!!  Necessity (and time) is the mother of invention!
I shall return with many pictures!
Take Care,
Tina
