This ending post for July is a bit hodge-podge since there are multiple things I wanted to share.
My hubby flew to Des Moines, Iowa with our son, Jeremy, Friday morning. Jeremy had business with one of his company's retirement communities, but yesterday [Sat.] morning they made the hour and a half drive to Omaha, Nebraska to see the Air Force base where Jerry was stationed in 1968 - Offutt Air Force Base [SAC Headquarters]. They were disappointed they couldn't tour the base because they hadn't made arrangements in advance, but they got a few pictures. Jerry said it has changed significantly in 54 years.
It was a bit of serendipity when we got to Ohio and Judy, the hostess of our gathering, had made all of us a jar of her homemade strawberry jam and placed a circle of the same fabric on the lid. She said it came from JoAnn Fabrics. I thought it would be fun to make a table topper and napkins with the the fabric and went to JoAnn's when I got home. They told me the lady who made the purses bought all of their supply. ;-) If you like tea-themed fabric, you might want to visit your local JoAnn's. I did some investigating and it's also available on Etsy.
