We were hoping that GB#3 would visit us tonight...and he did.

Fireball's birthday and Pumpkin Carving Day fell on the same day this year.
My pumpkin fell on the floor and split open,
but I did not let that stop me from finishing the carving.
I could not get the settings on my camera figured out
and switched fast enough to catch the birthday boy with three busy grandchildren
in a picture that was not blurry beyond repair.
But it was a great day. Happy birthday, Fireball.
Through it all, every day, you are my rock.

This top was purchased at the same time as this quilt.
It clearly has problems.
I figured I would just use it for longarm practice
and then cut it off square when I was done.
Only when I got it home did I do some measuring.
Little did I know that there was over a ten inch difference in the length of the top
measured through the middle and at the edge.
Some of it is machine stitched, some of it hand stitched.
It was probably made by more than one maker.
Tonight I was accused of adopting "difficult children."
We'll see how I do.
I expect lots of tucks, but I will do the best I can and have some fun.

The distraction level can get pretty high when I am trying to clean and organize,
especially when I find sweet little writings that M did many years ago.
I like that she hugs her sister a lot and likes to play with her brother.
On the next page she drew her other brother
and talks about going to his school to hear him sing.

I bought this quilt in northern Indiana over the weekend.
The colors and fabrics are really fun. (zoom in)
I thought the edges were interesting too.
The scallops are concave on two sides and convex on the other two.
