Our little Bode turns 2 years old today. I can't believe it! What a darling little boy you are, and as you can see he's so cute! We are glad to have you in our lives Bode. Nothing better than having him talk to me on the phone, or come running when he sees you! Such a loving little guy! He talks up a storm and has some very interesting things to say! I can't wait for your party this weekend Bode! Gogo loves this little guy!

This is our next You've been Bagged class sample. It's coming up in August at ETC. look I love how cute it came out, it's huge, perfect for an overnight getaway! It's got cute pockets inside with binding of the outside fabric. Big pockets on the front and back with a clasp inside for your keys. I love my new bag! I think you'll love yours too!,

I have to show you all these great quilts that left my class last week. This was the second go around on this quilt, several made it last month and I had 11 more this month during either the morning or evening class. I was so proud of them all, This group really persevered and got them done! We had several watermelon themed ones like mine...

My next Beyond Basics class at ETC. sample is hanging finally. I've taken it in each class to show everyone but it still had about 2 foot of binding not stitched down so it came home with me for the weekend and got finished and then washed so the lions mane would fluff up a bit! So here is ROAR! We are going to be featuring flying geese in class, how to make them easy so they come out right! Alot of people's complaint on making flying geese.

What a fun saturday morning spent with Amy's family. They gave us tickets to see Rapunzel with them at the Hale Theater in Gilbert for Easter. We met for breakfast before at Liberty Market. One of our families favorite places to go. Garrett had this cinnamon roll, it was as big as he was! What a treat to get to go out to eat with them all!
What fun to get to go to the theater with the boys. They'd seen a short show on one of their trips so it was fun to see them attentive to this special theater production for children. Very entertaining for adults too, they do a great job at the Hale Theater!

We had a busy weekend, fun, full of great times so I'll start with Friday.... our kids here all came over for lasagna dinner. We hadn't celebrated Chris's ( Amy's husband) birthday, it was a month late so I said come on we gotta celebrate even if it's late! So we had a fun not planned to far ahead dinner for Chris! We had cotton candy...of course...his favorite. Aiden got the adult job of putting into the bowl on the table!

Our Thursday Club got together on Monday ( always a confusion to Ken how a Thursday club could meet on a different day!) I was in charge of planning our summer time dinner so here are photo's of our fun Box Dinner. I took no photo's of people which now I regret but I did capture everyone's idea. Everyone sat the dinner they brought onto a number on my island, then we picked numbers out of a bowl and that was the dinner you got. I thought it might take several times to have everyone get one they hadn't brought but it worked the first time! Here is mine, a lunch bag with matching napkin, inside was their dinner...the menu hangs from the bag. Kathy got mine....
Kathy had a great summertime colander filled with fun patriotic summer things from flip flops to sparklers! Even a fun flag swag to decorate with. Mindy got hers!

Here is your big sneak peek at our Sew and Go Project for today and for next tuesday at ETC. The next in our travel series is this neat Jewelry roll. I just love how it came out. Rolls up nicely so you can take it in your carry on...
And then look at the inside. It has 4 pockets with zippers, 2 of which I decided to divide on mine so they'll be smaller for things you don't want to tangle together. You can't tell on the photo but one of the pockets is vinyl so you can see thru it! I still want to put a neat embellishment on the front so I"m on the lookout for the perfect thing!

I had to show you how pretty Linda's quilt is, she showed me what she did with our original jelly roll race pattern , she used the green as her little spacer squares and then she chopped it into segments after she sewed the strips, she said she made 2 different strip sets, then she sashed it with the same green, didn't it come out pretty!

Bode came and had an entire day with me. I took the day off and we sure had fun! We went to the mall to play on the toys, saw a crane in action on the way so had to pull over and watch it, course once the airconditioning unit was on the roof Bode says more crane.....I couldn't acomadate that so we went on our way.... He had such fun at the play area of the mall, he loved the climbing At first no one was there and then lots of friends showed up...He loved the "electronic" sit in toys too, in and out and back in and out, running around, he was in his element! Up and down the escalator a few times, up and down the elevator too......so much fun!
