Not Quilt Related

Between car problems, piled up errands, and babysitting, not much in the way of quilting has gone on around here. I did get the rows for the Christmas quilt backing sewn into pairs but that is as far as I got. Maybe tomorrow will be a better day.

This is Sky, my "great" grandson. He visited this morning while his grandmother, my daughter, went for her admission interview for nursing school. Here he looks happy, doesn't he. Well, he wasn't when he woke up in a strange house. But after a little temper he settled in.

Here he is with PawPaw, wondering, I think, what I was doing.

And meeting Buffy.
Sky and I spent some time outside sitting on the swing before his grandma came to take him away. He loves to swing so was quite content. It was fun to play with a baby again but also fun to see him packed in his car seat and taken away. I don't know how I got things done with little ones (4) around "way back then."
Tomorrow I have nothing else planned so really hope to get the quilt back done and everything loaded on the HQ16. Of course, as I typed this I remembered that I have a lunch date with my daughter so I guess I will have to get up early to get something done. What a mad social whirl my life is. ;-)

Gari -

Yes, I think I was sitting right behind you at the lecture. During the workshop, I was sitting right in front of the pass-through to the kitchen. I am so glad I got the chance to attend both. They were so much fun and so inspiring! Glad you got to take a road trip to attend!

Thanks for checking out my blog!
