Thanks for a great giveaway!

At this point I have no real plans for Memorial day. I did promise that I would be in the choir on Sunday before Memorial Day so I know there are no trips in the offing.
Hey, maybe I wil sew something!

Memorial Day weekend we're going to be sitting outside at the park in Malta Bend having a garage sale, LOL.
I have tons of stuff that I really don't want to get rid of, but because of all of mother in law's stuff, I don't have room for it, either in the house or in the garage.

Thanks for the chance to add more fabric to my stash!

Unfortunately in Europe we don't 'celebrate'-hold memorial day-as I know we have so many others like this in Hungary but at that time we stay at home together or visit grandparents-but not because of this occasion. rarely go out that time 'cause our society's lil bit temperamental in national things ...
