Monday Goals

Sunday, November 16, 2008
Boy the week went fast! Time for goals.

1. Bind the chunky churn dash and the two isolette covers
2. Load and quilt a top
3. Work on the Bricks and Stepping Stones

I'm home again, Mason went to daycare this week. No one to dance and sing with now. (I'm getting good at "wheels on the bus go round and round"!) I have a ham in the oven, that will make several meals so I can work. Last night after I got home I unwound by ironing all the bricks and 4 patches. And I made this bag for Ken.

Ken doesn't take much to work with him, paperwork, schedules, newspapers, manuals on farm equipment. He won't take a regular bag, he has for YEARS used 3-4 WalMart bags all stuffed together. I hated them. They looked awful. They were noisy. So last night I made him a "manly" bag---blues and blacks as he has a black coat with that shade of blue on it. I don't think he was impressed, but he used it!


Well, I best be getting to work. "Vacation" this past week put me behind schedule.

I can hear the mumbled comments and see the 'deer in the headlights' look.

Don't worry...you'll reach your goals! and I bet, you wouldn't trade away a moment of your time spent with Mason! Sometimes a Grandma just 'has to do' what a Grandam does :)

Hope Ken likes his new bag...very 'manly'!

it's a man thing to see how unimpressed you can look while still being incredibly impressed!

well, I'm impressed anyway!

Tell Ken he needs to appreciate that bag, or it might be abducted to NC! lol
