The Boys, The Girls & I

Have you missed me? Oh I hope so! :-)

I'd like to say that I've been super productive with my sewing, stitching & quilting but the fact is I've been spending time with the Boys and the Girls.

The Boys - my grandsons, Seth & Eli were both down with a strong flu bug. Suffering from high temps and had to be watched for the Swine Flu. They are both better and back in school today.

The Girls - The Truly Scrumptious girls (l to r Ava, Gigi & Izzy). These patterns are by Natalie Lymer/Cinderberry Stitches. I can't help but smile and snicker just a little while stitching these cuties! Six more to stitch!


And, now it's back to my long list of August goals. I hope that you've spent time with your needle and thread - I'll be visiting your blogs very soon to see what you've been doing.

I appreciate your visit - please come again!

In Friendship!

Your stitching is always fabulous. It is good to take time off for the boys and girls. They will never be this age again.

I just started stitching a Natalie Lymer pattern today for one of my swaps. Now how coincidental is that? I just love your ladies!

You've certainly been missed here in blogland. Glad that you're back and I hope that your grandsons are on the mend.

I was thinking of sending the dogs out after you, but I was afraid they'd go after the Wabbit gang. SO glad the boys are better - oh how I hate it when kids are sick!

Love love love your girls, and the fabrics you're using, so pretty!!!!

Every year I am more and more convinced that not only the seasons run in seasons, but I do too! Sometimes I steer clear of quilting because I am busy doing other things, but there are always certain times of year that I am very excited about my quilting. So, it goes in cycles. I have found that if I am not upset about it - it tends to settle itself.
