This Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real finds us home again after a busy weekend in Scarborough. Great Grandma (my Grandma) had her other hip replaced on Monday. So Grandma (my Mom) wanted to go down. The family always have a BBQ for Mother’s day. We stopped by for a short visit on Friday (I made a trip to Tina’s). Good thing we did stop because Ella came down with a cold and we weren’t able to go see Great Grandma Sunday or Monday.
Saturday I was Happy to be able to go to Floradale and the St. Jacob’s Farmers’ Market. We left Ella with Uncle Stefan and the 3 of us girls headed out for a day trip. The bakery in Floradale is where all our Mennonite friends do their material shopping. The entire second floor is material! I try to pick up a year’s worth of fabric every chance I get (just have to remember to bring cash).
The top one is for nightgowns for Ella and I. She likes when we match. The bottom two are for dresses (#420A) for my friend Michelle. There is enough of the off-white for a dress for me too.
The butterflies are for Ella -probably a jumper. And the other one is for a jumper for me (same as Michelle’s). It’s 100″ wide so I only needed 3m.
These four are for dresses for me.
The St. Jacob’s market had a devastating fire last fall. Their big beautiful wood building was lost. This year they have a giant tarp building.
Aside from being hard to heat in the late fall/winter, I actually like the tarp building better. So bright and sunny. Bet it’ll get crazy hot this summer. Belinda picked up some of the summer sausage the Mennonites make . Grandma picked up some fresh meat and I bought maple sugar and maple butter. We had perogies and cabbage rolls for lunch. Yum!
