Wednesday Ramblings

Thursday, July 23, 2009
Home early today, did several errands before I left. Tonight a few loads of laundry and worked on Alycia's #2 project. I think it is almost to the setting triangles. The more I work on it the more I like it!

The mailman had a gift waiting for me when I got home, I had won a Moda Harmony charm Pack from Missouri Quilt Co. Thank you! There are lots of paisleys and are very much "my style!"

I enjoy their website, follow their blog, and often check out their "deal of the day". I've been very happy with anything I have ordered from them. Best of all is their flat $5 shipping! Be sure to stop by and check them out! I am thinking of a special project to make using these pieces--there are lots of motifs that remind me of civil war type fabric, and I love the dark colors, the sage greens and reds, dark blues and golds. Can anyone think of a good project to use them in?

If we don't hit any snags, we'll be in Mankato with Laura Beth and Mason Friday night. Lots of snuggle time I hope, but if Mason is too busy to snuggle, he and grandpa will eat ice cream!! I heard today Mason was busy eating a rock! No matter what we do, we plan to enjoy it and have lots of "family time"!! My camera is packed with new batteries, now I just have to remember to take pictures! If it were at all possible, we would pack them all up immediately and move them closer to us, we miss them so much! I grew up with lots of family living very close most my life, having my only child live five hours away is HARD! I long to help and give support to my daugher as my mother and grandmother did to me. sigh

is she closer to Texas from you? If so you just pack up and move there! If she's farther you'd better take some boxes with you so you can move her your way.

My 2 grand kids are only about 12 hours away... by plane... if I get flights that don't require a long layover anywhere... LOL They are in Hawaii right now as my SIL is in the Navy.

I've yet to wrap my arms around the youngest as he was born in Nov - Thank goodness for the internet which helps keep us in touch with pictures and information!

Enjoy the snuggles!

Sounds like a wonderful weekend ahead! I know what you mean about moving them closer. DD is 6 1/2 hours away and looks as if she'll be there a while. I might just have to move one more time before the cemetery--if I ever get to retire.

And any day with squishies in the mail is a great day!
