Monday Night Monogramming

It was a monogramming night last night! These pillow cases are the softest ever. I have GOT to have some of these for myself! These are for Derek and Jeannine's upcoming bridal shower. I hope they like them...
The hand embroidered cupcake tea towel is for Brooke and Chris' shower Saturday. The name is machine embroidered. I hope they like it!
Pam England ordered the monogram on the apron below. Most new brides love to receive things with their new initials on it. Thanks for the order Pam!

Antique Quilt Show @ WC Fair

Lena Jones shown with one of the beautiful Friendship Quilts entered...
Leticia Barnes tries to decide which quilt will get her vote for "People's Choice"...

Lena Jones and Susan Phillips discuss some of the entries...
The Antique Quilt Show at the Warren County Fair was something to see as usual. The ladies that organize the display do such a wonderful job. I don't have all their names, but Lena Jones and Reba Jo Newby are two that devote much of their free time to this event. Be sure to watch BLTV channel 6 to see what was filmed about the quilt show. Mrs. Lena always does a fabulous job explaining all the different entries! I don't know how she remembers all that information, I sure couldn't! Thanks ladies for all you do to bring us this quilt show each year!

Goodbye Westwood Bridge!

Our Westwood Bridge was officially closed today. Demolition will begin and a new bridge will be constructed in it's place. A process that will take approximately 15 months. This bridge is as much a part of Warren County history as anything I can think of. Yesterday, I decided to make some photos before the demolition begins. Well.......I wasn't the only one. I saw numerous people with the same idea. Everyone wanted a picture of "their" bridge and to walk across the wooden walkway one more time. I'm sure the new bridge will be wonderful, and it was really needed, but we're all so attached to the old bridge that was part of so many lives...
I walked across these weather boards as a child. This bridge has been there all of my life.
If you lived in Westwood and wanted to walk to town, you had to cross the bridge.
A view upstream toward our house...
A view toward the dam where a new bridge has already replaced another "old" bridge in town...
I wonder if the ducks at Riverfront Park will miss the shade of that bridge?
Here our bridge looks nestled among the trees... Westwood Bridge you will be missed!

Saturday in Knoxville, TN

The pre-game parade is fabulous, as usual...

The streets turn to a sea of orange on game day...
A little of the pre-game show, preparing for the team to run through the Power T!
The crowd roars as the team enters the stadium...(Sorry guys, I missed Lane Kiffin. I'm sure he will eventually earn a photo on here. )

Some crazy fans with body paint (I think all they actually had on was wigs and boxers)...

And the game continues...didn't end to our satisfaction...but there's always hope. Never, never, never give up!
