Day 274 of 2016

When Mom and I went inside to set up for the craft fair tomorrow, 
it was still light out.  
When we came out the sky was a beautiful blue.

Day 273 of 2016

I am doing a small repair for a friend. 
Tries one and two did not meet my expectations. 
Third time's a charm, right?

Update:  Third time was not a charm.  I've moved on for today.

"One of these things is not like the others."  Look closely.
"One of these things just doesn't belong."  -Sesame Street

Do you see him?

Day 269 of 2106

This year's retreat theme was two color quilts. 
I am happy with my progress, 
but I am even happier to be home.

Day 263 of 2016

Despite the fact that I missed the welcome sign (Hands up, "Woo!"), 
I made it to northern Michigan, my home for the next week.

Oh, hi there, Mr. Man in the Moon.

Day 255 of 2016

I'm sure I've posted a picture similar to this before, 
 but I never grow tired of this view from our football stadium.

Day 254 of 2016

When a fire truck makes a visit to the annual neighborhood party, 
there is nothing like taking a seat inside.

Day 253 of 2016

This storm is headed our way, bringing with it storm and tornado warnings. 
I think we have enough time to watch a movie before it gets here. 
Let's hope the power doesn't go out.

Day 251 of 2016

Tonight was supposed to be a crock pot meal. 
I didn't get out to the grocery early enough to get it in and cooked on time. 
As a substitute we had baked potatoes dressed as tacos. 
It looks like we'll have the crock pot meal tomorrow.

Day 250 of 2016

My swatch finally came out pretty well. 
It was still a little off so I had some adjusting to do, but I think it will work. 
I am struggling a little with "ladders" and am trying all the solutions. 
I'm not too worried though. 
One article I read said that somewhere between sock number 8 and 28 
you will look down at your work and realize that you don't have them anymore. 
Besides, they will be on my feet. 
I am sure no one will notice.

This guy (GB#3) is such a riot. 
The things that come out of his mouth are way beyond his (2) years.

Day 248 of 2016

Fireball surprised me with an early birthday gift. 
I am so excited!  Do you see this? 
It has fabric, scissors, sewing machine, computer, and of course, a camera!

Day 245 of 2016

Today I am putting the finishing touches on another birthday sewing project. 
This one is super secret.  Shhh.
