Sisters Time

I grew up with 5 sisters and 2 brothers.  When the girls get the chance to get together and spend a little time it is always a blessing.  Five of us were able to gather last weekend at Lynda's house and I thought I would share a few pictures of her welcoming home.  We missed out sister Becky who lives to far away and was unable to be there. It is nice to see our brothers too but this was a girl's night.

The table was set beautifully.

Notice the S on the napkin, this was my place at the table. 

I did not get a clear picture of the menu but we shared a wonderful meal of soup, salad and bread

This is a copy of the invitation Lynda made for this fun evening.  We spent a little time asking each other some of the questions on the front of this card.

Don't they all look relaxed.
Part of our reason for getting together was to celebrate fall birthdays.
The table runner below is what I made for Laurie's gift.  She is the one with the dark hair in the picture directly above.

This table runner was made using a great tutorial Shell at The Raspberry Rabbits shared.  The tutorial is very clear and I had fun with this design.  I hope to try it again.
This was Raydine's gift. She is the one pictured above looking at a book.  She likes to sew so a pincushion seemed a good choice.  I joined the pincushion of the month club at Shabby Fabrics and this was the pincushion for September.

Our sister Becky also has a fall birthday and I have a gift for her that I will share at another time.  I have not sent it to her yet, I will get that ready to mail right away so that I can share it here soon.
Our time together was special and I am thankful for it.


  1. This was a wonderful sharing moment. I am the only girl in my family - wanna adopt me lol??? Beautiful creation and very beautiful women....


  2. I have one brother. I can't imagine growing up with so many siblings. Looks like you gals had a lovely evening together. Your pumpkin pincushion is so sweet. And that invitation certainly would spark wonderful conversation. Have a great weekend. Tammy

  3. It looks like you all had a wonderful time! I love spending time with my siblings so I know how special this must have been for all of you.
    The gifts you made for your sisters are beautiful!
