I just added a sidebar button from The Painted Quilt.  She will be posting a free design on the first Friday of every month and if you like embroidery her patterns are darling.   She's calling it "First Friday Freebie". 

I'm still (slowly) working on the fabric portrait just trying to get my pattern the way I want it.  Altho I'm not getting very far along very fast for sure.  And occasionally I get to sneak in a couple more blocks on Don's quilt.  I have it about half done so far.   

Even with that it seems like not much sewing or quilting going on around here lately.  We've been going to watch our Varsity volleyball girls play (Alivia).  Saturday we drove a couple of hours (one way) to watch them play in an eight team tournament.   They just rolled right over every team they played and took 1st.  This is the second tournament in a row they've won.  They're looking pretty good right about now. 
Last night we drove to Hays to watch them in regular play against three other teams.   The JV was there too so we got to watch Beth play at least one game.  And then of course when we're not watching the girls.... there's Stu's football games.  It's such a joy to watch him carry the ball and find a hole to snake through to head for a touchdown. 

Ok... enough sports this morning.  I'm off to grab a bite and spend a few hours sewing today. 


  1. At least you are doing some fun things while you aren't sewing, I'm just procrastinating LOL.


  2. Those games will end so soon. Enjoy every minute!

  3. Kids' sports are so much fun, aren't they? We'll miss a couple games this weekend while we're gone, but we'll get going again as soon as we get back.
