Big Sister with her Little Brother --
Here's everyone in their first family picture.
Hum, I need to work on my lighting skills. I took 20 or so pictures but I thought this one showed a bit more of Theo. We'll be staying with Ellie until Mommy and Daddy come home. And, boy this was really easy now that we live so much closer to both of our kids' families.
In addition to all this activity yesterday and today, my quilt buddy Sharon was down this weekend for the first time since we moved. She was tickled it only took an hour and a half to drive down. (It took me a lot longer to drive up when I went up in June!) She pulled out these blocks that she had won at a retreat in 2013. I had pulled out my 6 a week or so ago and decided it would take too long to get enough blocks for a decent quilt so I put them back. I was more than willing to give her my six. We're making a Project Linus quilt. She took it home to decide about bordering it. I'll quilt it and one of us will bind it. Both of us have been able to take a UFO off of our lists. YEA! (Well, almost completely off!)
I haven't been doing such a great job on my goals this week, heck for the last several weeks. Most goals had a little bit done on them, maybe not as much as I wished though. Once we get back home I'll have to really get busy on several things. I'm down to a week and a half before fall retreat. I'm hoping to be very organized with my projects. We'll see if I have time to cut out a new project and organize the rest of the blocks for Christmas Traditions. I'll be doing one of those blocks tomorrow while Ellie is at preschool.
