I just had to show you this "cuteness" that Mindy has been so busy with... She brought to me this cute clipboard, all done up in burlap and lace and flowers....I keep finding places to put it! As you see I poked my Grandbabies on it ( big shock) but I"m thinking a recipe would really be cute...love it!And look at this darling little bird....He's got a blue tummy and a very cute little nest!

We had a wonderful visit with Ken's folks this weekend, best we've had in ages. We had lots to celebrate in the family, several birthday's near and far so we had ice cream to wish them all a happy day and especially Gene who turned 83! I hope I look and feel that good when I turn 83! So for
Connor and our newest baby Hallie Mae just 2 days old and Gene and Tony, we had ice cream for everyone! That's alot of birthdays in one weeks time for a family! And we had laughs, the best one coming from Gene telling us about the dairy cow milking in Wisconsin! A great time!

Just had to show you all the pretty fall leaves since it's officially "that time of year". I know we are having warm weather yet but with our cool evenings and mornings it really is nice to say goodbye to 110+ ! We survived another July and August in AZ! So these great gals all came to make my fall leaves quilt at ETC. We spent the first class learning this maple leaf block, this week we spent most of the time figuring out how everyone should lay their quilt blocks out. Betsy made lots of blocks and should have enough for a table runner too! Aren't they pretty!

Ken and I were treated to a wonderful theater production in Gilbert of Snow White this last weekend. What a great show at the downtown Gilbert Hale Theater. We all enjoyed it so much, especially the way they portrayed the magic mirror! We had yummy cinnamon rolls at Liberty market, then walked down to the farmers market to poke around before the show. I bought a great salad dressing mix to try, the boys had fun in the fountains.
And this is what happens while you wait for the show to start with 3 little boys!

Back by popular demand, Barb and I are teaching our Martinique bag again this fall at ETC. This has been such a fun bag to make and sew. Laminated cottons make such great bags and I have yet to have one wear out! A new sample one is up but you can make one out of regular cottons too. Full of pockets and zippered pockets, it's been a great bag to make and use! Barb did another one too out of red polka dot....ahhhhhh cute!

We've been busy organizing a new Block of the Month that will start in November at ETC. Our others were such HUGE successes that when we saw this one we had to do it. Here is a sneak peek at 2 of the blocks I've gotten done. Course they don't get the cute buttons and embellishments until they are quilted but you'll get the idea. This one has part of it pieced and part is appliqued. It's been alot of fun to choose the fabrics and organize it all. Both of these are stitched out and I've got Patti cutting the fabrics so they'll all be exactly like our sample. Lots of orgainzation to pull these off but they are so fun. You can sign up now with a $25 registration fee, it starts up in Nov. and it's very easy, after a certain date each month your kit is ready for you to pick up. We are planning to have thread kits so that you can have everything you need matching. What a great family tradition this quilt will be. We've had our other Block of the Month programs going and have several that we even mail each month. So if you are wanting to join us don't delay, these sell out really fast and once we are full, that's it! Registration is open now. I'll show you more of the blocks as soon as they are done! How fun to do one of these each month, a great way to tackle a large project like this!

Amy and Chris and my 3 little buddies all came over last weekend for an impromtu dinner...one of those what is in your refrigerator and what is in ours kind of meals! We had a fun swim and then the boys finally got to smash the geods I'd brought to them from my visit this summer to Pine with my parents. They wrapped them in a towel and swung away at them, hard to break a rock! Papa had to help some but it was fun to see what was inside. They each went home with their baggie of smashed rock pieces with a few crystals inside!
