I didn’t get to watch a lot of the Emmy’s last night but my favorite part was this one (actually, I didn’t get to see it all because I was literally choking on the water I was drinking when the one lady was asked what the trophy was).
OMG, I just watched it again and cried.
These were my favorite looks.
I follow FEED on Instagram (I follow a lot of non-profit organizations on Instagram that are doing things to make this World a better place . . . well, and then I also follow Kim Kardashian . . . I mean, I need to be up to date on her life of course! It makes me feel better for some reason. Hopefully one day I’ll win the lottery and can devote my life to helping others . . .). ANYWAY, back to FEED, They had this post today and its a post that I really needed . . . today . . . so I thought I would share (that’s the beautiful Lauren Lauren – the co-founder of FEED, granddaughter of George Bush, Sr and wife of David Lauren, the son of Raph Lauren . . . did you get all that?!?).
FEED’s mission is to create good products that help FEED the world. They have pretty cute stuff. Love this little beach bag to put your phone, money, etc in while you’re in the sand (which will provide 25 school meals).
The friends I sew with on Tuesday belong to the Piecemakers Guild of Brandon. Every 2-3 years the Guild has a quilt show. Several quilt shows ago, Judy had a “sweatshop” that created fabric items for a boutique that was far and above what any other guild has ever done. She wants her tradition to continue, so has decided to encourage our group to make some items for the next quilt show boutique once a month. Here are our creations for this month. I would consider all of us quite accomplished sewers. We aren’t sure why, but the bags were so simple that we had trouble making them. I know, it doesn’t make any sense, does it? We tried to blame our difficulties on the phase of the moon. Despite our difficulties, the bags turned out adorable. Its been a while since I showed some of the things we’ve been working on. Claudia made this cute bag. Of course we all want to make one. Claudia made another baby quilt for her future great grandchild. (I hope it’s a girl, Claudia.) Ok, Claudia was an overachiever. What…haven’t I taken pictures of anyone else’s work? I don’t remember who made this, and I don’t recognize the fingers.Debbie made a million spools. How cute!Cindy caught the spools bug. Sashing (the strips between the blocks) makes a difference. I wish when I started quilting I had thought to make one of these blocks out of every fabric I used in a quilt.Judy finished a basket block, this is going to be a spectacular quilt.
That’s it for show and tell. One last thing to report…it only takes 20 minutes to drive to Judy’s house, instead of 45 minutes. I was almost on time today!
