Whew ... what a whirlwind the past couple of days have been! Monday morning I got my stitches out -- easy-breezy -- and I had a long enough wait that I was able to finish quilting my mini-hexie top, write and address several note cards, and finish my grocery list. Aye-yi-yi. From there it was errands and grocery shopping, and by the time I got home, it was after two-thirty! (I left at seven-thirty!)
I had a guild board meeting ... there was lots of discussion and it gave me the opportunity to finish up stitching together my other hexie project . . .
Yay! Mr. Owlie in the Burning Ring of Fire is ready to put together and quilt!
I've told y'all I'm a magazine addict, right? These were some of the issues at the meeting that were 'free to a good home':
I'll go through them and carry them back to the December meeting (or send 'em out upon request). There were some cute things that caught my eye.
Especially these two titles, which I'd never seen before. Since the one on the right is published in France, that explains that one!
Yesterday I spent the daytime with Ellie ... I can't believe how she's practically growing up before my eyes! She's crawling and pulling herself up, and walks very competently (frontwards *and* backwards) when she's got a finger or two to hold onto to.
Needless to say, I had my hands happily full with her -- she's such a darling delight -- and I didn't snap a single picture. I remember lamenting about this when Sawyer was this age, too! The above is compliments of Jocelyn. :)
I finished up the binding on the mini-hexie project while Ellie was napping:
Yay! The binding is so dark it just blends into the background -- but it *is* purple!
Yesterday afternoon I picked up Sawyer and we headed to the Fire Station to have dinner with Paw-paw! He was ready to GO when I got to his house ... Kim said he'd pretty much talked about it the whole day long! He sure did talk about it the whole drive over there!
|Sitting in Ladder #6 with Paw-paw!|
|Ready to drive off in Rescue #6!|
|Strapped in and ready to go! That helmet is so heavy, |
he's having a hard time holding his little head up!
|In his Paw-paw's turnouts! You'll notice Todd's holding him up? |
When he'd let go, Sawyer would fall over (he's wearing the coat,
boots, *and* pants)!
|In the driver's seat of Ladder #6 with the lights flashing!|
He really had a marvelous, marvelous time -- and talked about it all the way home!
I spent a little time at the house when I dropped Sawyer off ... I got in a little June time, too!
Yup, I'd say it was a day well spent!
Gotta get busy today ... lots of cooking to do! I hope your day is filled with happiness and marvelous smells from the kitchen!
