Weekend Recap

This weekend in our neck of the woods was hot.
Nice, but hot.
We are thankful for air conditioning.

Saturday morning we relished in our favorite relaxing activities--drinking coffee while the husband plays some video games; then a trip to the grocery store. 

We were also celebrating 6 months of marriage--it's gone so quickly so far and the husband bought me some absolutely beautiful peonies.  He knows how to speak my language.  No, those aren't a postcard.  They are sitting on my table.

Saturday afternoon he left me craft for a few hours.  I have been seeing a lot of fabric rosette headbands, neckalces, etc and I am in la la love with all of them.  But, the budge doesn't let me buy as many necklaces as my heart desires, so I decided I would try to figure them out.  After a few hours of work, and some rosettes went from this:
After 5 tries, I was satisfied..and moved on to the real fun--making the necklace.

I am so pleased with how it came out!!

It was a wonderful weekend.  How were things in your neck of the woods?
