I've used this Route 66 skirt pattern from Marie-Madeline Studios about six times. Can you guess it's a favorite? Skirt fabric is Rendezvous, by Anthology. The aqua, sweater top was a bargain purchase for $7 but the white knit shrug made up for it at $40. The necklace and earrings were 40 percent off, and for the shoes, I used a birthday discount. Once in a while, it just feels nice to get an entirely new outfit. Anyway, I'm sure I'll wear many times.
After church we drove to Kansas City to visit our daughter and family for a couple days. It was a shorter-than-usual visit, but we packed a lot into it.
Some of the fun was meeting up with Carla, and having our grandchildren meet for a play date! Tay was especially excited to meet almost four year-old Lula. You see, Lula is a celebrity! If you haven't yet watch this Youtube video, you simply must!
Co-Stars: Lula and her Daddy
It's wildly popular at our grandsons' house. They've watch it only about a ga-jillion times!
The boys and Lula played together in the basement. Some of the fun was Tay and Lula listening to plumbing pipes while a shower was running upstairs.

It's always nice to horseback ride with a new friend.

Carla led Tay and Lula in some exercise. I'm glad she's never insisted I do that!
Oh! And for those of you who commented on my previous post about pre-washing Essex linen, thank you! You'll be very interested to know that I did pre-wash it, and it shrunk considerably! From three yards to two yards 32 inches. More than an inch per yard! I'm glad I decided to wash it before using it in a quilt. Linda
