Pin Cushions

I love pin cushions! But I hate clutter so I haven't allowed myself to indulge in them. But with all the cute pin cushion patterns out there I just can't stand it. I'm going to start making a small collection, starting with a pear pattern I found. I hope this doesn't turn into yet another un-achieved goal in life lol.

Will post pics as soon as I actually make one. Wish me luck : )

Happy Mothers Day

I hope everyone is having a splendid mothers day today! You deserve it : )

Can this weekend get any better ? I spent yesterday watching my daughter Amy run her first half marathon. It happened to fall on her youngest son's first birthday. I can't imagine running a marathon just a year after having a 10 lb baby lol. Way to go Amy!!! After crossing the finish line she walked across the park and set up a luncheon / birthday party for Liam. Oy to have that kind of energy. I couldn't have been prouder. Way to go Amo and Happy birthday King Liam! (We call him King Liam as he was in a 3T by the time he was 11 months old...he's one big boy!)

A perfect day!

My son Chris and I spent the day watching all the grand kids at my daughter Amy's house while she headed up the beautification day for Marcus's school. (Britt stayed home for a much deserved break....thanks for loaning Chris to me for the day, I couldn't have done it with out him) Rylie and Liam were a hoot to watch playing together. Emma changed her clothes about 10 times and Marcus taught me a new board game. I brought my camera and wouldn't you know it I didn't take a single picture of them! 8 hours of grand baby photo ops lost. I didn't think the day could get any better and then my phone rang..... Chad had good news .....

I told myself I wouldn't post anymore Halloween finds until I'd posted a few quilts or grand baby pics ....Not wanting to seem too obsessed and all. But this just couldn't wait! Chad found my butler a buddy today. A good friend called him from a garage sale and told him to get over there quick! I have been wanting this guy for years! He got him for a steal and had him standing in the entryway when I walked in. While he can't compare to a day with my kids and grand kids it was a great end to the day.

Marcus is excited to see granny's new friend and Emma is not in the least bit pleased with the news.
