These three lovely ladies arrived on US soil over the weekend!
That’s my 13-year-old niece, my 6-year-old niece and my sister, arriving at the airport. We had a great time over the weekend, shopping, eating, and catching up.
We spent a day at the Milwaukee Art Museum with my dad, and got to see a quilt exhibit. How lucky for me! All of the quilts were from the mid-1700s to mid-1800s. Sorry, no cameras were allowed in the exhibit.
I thought this sculpture was really beautiful.
And then I got closer to see what it was made of – buttons!
The coolest thing about the Milwaukee Art Museum is the actual building. If you time your visit right, you can watch the wings open above the building. What’s that, you say? Check out these two pictures:
Here they are closed:
Here they are almost completely open:
Next weekend, we are hosting the annual family reunion at our house, so I have about four days to get caught up and get ready.
Believe it or not, I have been sewing a lot lately!
I finished two custom orders for customers of my shop, so I hope to share more on those later this week.

Sign-ups for the Ornament Swap in July are closed. My sister and a friend of hers from China have joined in the fun! (Don’t worry, if you get their names. You can mail your ornaments to my house in the US to avoid shipping costs to China, and I will just hand them to my sis. Easy peasy.)
I hope to email your partner information to you by the weekend. Stay tuned, if you are participating! Hope everyone enjoyed a fabulous summer weekend, if you were in the US celebrating Independence Day.
