Great Grandson

Hi have had the great grandson over and it was late this night I told him to go upstairs and get in bed. Well I thought he had obeyed and when I was headed up myself this is what I saw.  He is such a ham and fun most of the time. He is 5 years old.

Then I also managed to stitch this  up. It is a free pattern from Bird Brain Designs. I am now working on the one for July last summer. But hey  I am at least getting to it. LOL I am stitching them on the osnaburg fabric and am using product by Solvy called Sticky Fabri-Solvy. It comes in 8 1/2 x 11 sheets  to use in the printer. Works great to me. I have not seen it in Joann's or other but did get a local quilt shop to order it in.  If you do any embroidery you may want to try it as well.

Busy week

Well we lost a brother in law this past Sunday. He was a very gentle man and well liked. Bill you are missed already.  I have a great neice getting married this coming Sat. and today is calling hours for Bill . Tomorrow  he will be laid to rest. One of our sisters drove up from NC and I will be seeing her tonight. On a happier note I went to our guild picnic and had a good time. they had some good games and I won one of them.A word scramble, then I played one because they asked for a couple volunteers and I was told  do it. Well it was stacking cups and talking them down. I lost here is a picture of me and the cups the gal in the second photo won. Her name is Laura was fun .

Well been a few days or weeks since I last posted here. It has been hot here in Ohio and thundery too. Had a lot of food to make and picnics to attend. I have a wedding and then a graduation party just a week ahead of that. After that I have to get ready for some important company coming to . My ladies from Scotland are coming September 1st and stay with us for 2 weeks. I love to have them !!
Oh and this coming Monday is our annual quilt guild picnic I have to have a table runner made for the challenge and then a dish to share as well. That is always a fun time for me.
I bought 4 books this past month, two are by Nancy Halverson, "Count On It" and then the "Calender and Stitchery". The other is "Scrap Basket" and one more"Strip-Smart Quilts" that requires a special ruler, so I am in for some serious sewing soon. I am going to be the host for a quilt retreat in September and need to get my block made for the pre-required sewing.
 Oldest grandson came home for the holiday . Rode his motorcycle from PA. to OH. about and 8 hour ride one way. Sure was nice to see him and he is making his way into the work force. Going to school to be a cycle repairman. I am so proud of him. He is finally becoming his own person. Way to go Bryan!!
