~*Frantic Friday*~

Hello Dear Friends! Sadly, I don't have any ~*Friday Finishes*~ to share this week... instead, it is a ~*Frantic Friday*~ for me. I needed to get the box of goodies packed & shipped to Lori of Notforgotten Farm for the Trunk Show...

While gathering everything up... I LOST one of the models I REALLY wanted to send. It is still missing... but everything else I wanted to send is packed and now at UPS...

I am so tickled to be a part of Lori's shop! I only wish I could visit in person!! Her Gathering of Primitive Friends Show is scheduled for September 17th & my patterns will be there on display. Those of you that get to visit... have a great time! I'm sure Lori and friends will be the most wonderful hosts!

Also today... was the big grocery shopping outing to prepare for the HUGE August/September Birthday Bash we are hosting this Sunday for our family. We expect about 40 to gather... laughs, giggles, go karts, swimming, and FUN! (about 10 of those 40 have birthdays in these two months!) I'm making two large party subs, some grilled chicken, and a couple desserts... but others will bring food too. Like always... I'm sure we will have more fixin's than we can eat... but will have leftovers to enjoy later.

Now that those things are marked off my TO~DO list... time to clean and straighten up the yard & gardens...

It always feels stressful the few days before these parties... but I do LOVE to have everyone over. We are truly blessed with a wonderful, large family!

Wishing you all a joyous holiday weekend! Stay safe and celebrate with those that you love!

Warm smiles...



  1. Enjoy your weekend bash and congrats on the Trunk show!

  2. That bash sounds like such fun. Have a great Trunk show and a wonderful holiday weekend!

  3. Sounds like a wonderful weekend - glad you got your stuff sent off - Maybe you packed the sample and didn't realize it! Hopefully! Anyway - HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND!

  4. Have a wonderful week-end and enjoy your family and friends.

  5. I so wish I could visit Lori's shop....I think she just needs to open a branch store here or something! ;o) Hope your missing model shows up (in time to still ship it!) Have fun with the party - I'm getting pooped out just thinking about it - we used to have several family get-togethers here several times during the year - and it just wore us out after a while (well, 3 days of doing dishes (no dishwasher here) - the day before, the day of, and the day after - was enough in and of itself....But I do miss it! Hope the weather cooperates! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  6. It would be fun to go to Lori's show.
    I hope your things do well.


  7. Have lots of fun at your family gathering! It would be fun to attend Lori's show and I'm sure everyone will enjoy seeing your beautiful pieces :)

  8. Sounds like a most wonderful time! I love when we have family get-togethers, we are a big family too. They are always so much fun and yes... always way too much food! Lol! I'm the same way. The couple of days leading up to a gathering of any sort at my home, lends me to a frantic round of cleaning. But soon you will be able to sit, relax, and enjoy this time together!

  9. Sounds like so much fun!! I really wish I had a large family to enjoy celebrations like that with. Have a great time! ~Kriss~

  10. Have a great time this weekend Betty!
    Good luck with your models at Lori's shop.
    Murf :)
