Today was the KSS (Kindred Spirits Sampler) Guild's annual Auction. This is always a much anticipated and fun event which helps raise money to pay for the teachers we have visit.
This morning, as I'm getting ready to go, DH-Rob asked if I'd like breakfast? Huh? Do I ever turn down a meal? Especially when someone else is cooking? "Yes, hon' I'd love breakfast!". A few minutes into eating and my lower lip starts to itch and swell. Not sure what I could possibly be reacting to - maybe Rob's trying to poison me slowly and it's finally working - he has been making a lot of weekend breakfasts lately..... Anyway, the darn lip kept growing and getting further and further away from my face. I could see my lower lip sticking out! I looked like Bubba Gump on steroids. Quick! Pop some Benadryl 'cause I'm starting to panic. I've had a severe allergic reaction before and trust me, not fun. I called Julie and Deb to tell them I couldn't make it. But then, a bright idea hit. I'd have Rob drive me to Deb's (a good 30 minutes away), and I'd ride to the guild meeting with her. Thankfully, by the time we got to Deb's house the swelling had gone down so I was able to attend without looking like Bubba! We had a great time and Deb and Julie both came away with some auction wins. I got zip. One rotten lady outbid me at the very last second on a bunch of sampler charts I was watching... bummer! A fun day all in all and here are some pics of the days offerings. I had a pic taken of the 3 of us but there wasn't one shot where we ALL looked stunning so it'll have to wait for another day.
After the meeting, I was going to have Matt (DS) meet me at Deb's so she wouldn't have to go so far out of her way to take me home. But... she insisted that she didn't mind at all so she drove me home and we had a nice chat all the way! I really did feel bad though, the freeway was closed for construction (even though there was no constructing going on) so it took longer than it should have. Thanks, Deb!
Here are some random pictures of some of the things at auction. Deb won a SB kit for $10 and Julie got the sweet cherry fob stitched on 40 count, over one with a pair of red scissors to go along! It was stunning and not quite the deal that Deb's was but still, worth every penny!
The last two pics are what made my day so sweet..... I got home and look what I found.... Rob and Matt working over a pot of chilli for dinner - I didn't have to do a thing tonight - Rob knows I'm not feeling well so he took care of everything!!! So, I decided to use my time to make this post and now it's off to stitch or sleep - not sure which....
Have a great week and thanks for stopping by and for all the comments you leave, I really appreciate them!
