Quilt done!!!!

One happy girl (might be thinking its about time... not sure:) Yesterday when I got the machine sewing done she was jumping up and down and I still had to hand stitch the binding on (she tried to be patient, but that is a hard thing for a little girl to be.)  I promised I would have it done for her to sleep under tonight, boy am I glad I got it done.

Both Ada and I love the binding the best (funny yes?  All that work and the last piece is the best part).

The back.

Super glad to have it done (now just Mom and Dad's, Two for Mark and I, one for Elijah (I have not even got the fabric for this one), one lap quilt and TONS of more ideas to go......LOL.

Hope you all had a great weekend, what did you guys do?

May or May not

I may or may not be:
  • Sick of summer and wish it was over 
  • Scared of what it will be like when summer is over
  • Ready to have the kids do something ANYTHING other then bug me all the time
  • Sad about the time when they will have others to bug
  • Love the smell of fall in the air
  • Sad about the smell of summer in the air
  • Excited about Elijah starting to learn the French Horn
  • Scared of what my ears will be thinking of the French Horn
  • Sorry that I have to try one more medication to get my Arthritis under control
  • Praying that the insurance company will pay for the new med
  • Excited that the pharmacist now knows my name
  • Ready to go get some B-fast
OK so no photo (sorry Dad) but at least it is a blog.

And I quote

Elijah to his sister : I like your jokes they are just not funny to me.... they are pretty jokes..... I am sure they are funny to someone else just not to me..... they are pretty... pretty long sometimes.

I think that maybe he is trying to get her not to cry.  I see crying in the very near future.

Wordless Monday (Counts as a blog even if it has no words;)

They love it so much that they may fight EVERY time they go outside about who gets to go on it first (I may  have to cut it down if they do not stop:)

No photos, no cord

I have photos to show you, but the cord for my camera went MIA (mind you my loving husband says that I am no google (read into this I am not a good search engine)) so you will just have to deal with a recap that has not photos  (I am a photo kinda girl and do not like to write blogs that have no photos, but here goes).

This weekend my husband made our lovely little girl a swing for our tree (I am now resisting the urge to look for a photo from the past of my tree that we hung it in.) This is her last birthday gift from us.  Ada in her loving sweet way kept asking him to make it while he was making the table for the back porch and he could not say no to that sweet face any more.  The kids both love it... (read into this they fight about it and scream about who gets to be on... I just sent them outside and they are fighting about it before they even get outside) 

I also got all the fabric cut out for my mom and dad's quilt and I got all the blocks together.  Now I have to do the hard part and lay them out in the order I want to sew them (really not looking forward to that).  I do not like one of the color combos, but luckily I have 10 extra blocks (not sure how that happened, but they will end up on the back of the quilt) and 6 of them will be the ones I do not like.

Well I sent the kids out in the heat and I can hear them screaming (in a good way so far), but I should go out there before they start the bad kind of screaming.

Have a nice day and I will try and be a better google tomorrow so that I can show you some photos.
