and of course big brother Mick
Isa just melted my heart with that gorgeous smile.. they are both beautiful Anael thank you for sharing
Is that Lemon Squares I see Mick eating ?????
No though he had a bite but didn't like it much. He's having a sloppy Joe with cheese. My DS, who doesn't like lemon had a piece of the Lemon Square and would have had more if there were more :D :D
I am going grocery shopping tomorrow and have lemons on my list, will be making it on the weekend, hope mine turns out as nice as yours and QuiltE's...
Anael, thank you for starting my day out with a big smile and a happy heart! What beautiful pics of "our" 3 grand babies!
Love those pictures of the Sew Grand babies...and older brother, too.
Maybe OKsewGlad can get her camera working for more pictures of her Sew Grands to show us before they all leave tomorrow!! children grow up all too quickly and we need more photos!!!
Jeanie, I went back a hundred on pages and came forward trying to find you photo and model of your table; no luck. Then I went to the Wal Mart site and tried it there without success so will have to wing it at the Wal Marts in the area. The photo of how the cutting mat was laying on the table helped.
Mirabelle, if I said North, my dh would say South; I want to trade his GMC (2004 4 x 4) truck in on a new vehicle and he wants to trade my (2000 Town and Country) Chrysler in on a new vehicle. His has the greatest value to trade in and is newer but more things are wrong with his than mine. Since My 'buying' of all the sewing machines and tables, there is no argument 'cause there is not any extra monies until next Spring, or Summer. Meanwhile I hope to get the sewing room going this next month.
Dublb, when we sold our home in CC to our daughter's friend, Dallas and her dh, came down and packed up our big house in a couple of weekends...or rather, Dallas packed it up. She worked so fast, I just sat in a chair and watched her take one room at a time and pack everything into boxes. Never did find all of it again, but she sure packed us up in a hurry, (even the pennies and loose change was in some boxes!) so they could move in. It remained packed while we survived in a rental on Padre Island for a horrid year, before retiring and moving up North almost on top of the Iowa/Missouri border. It had been home for almost 20 years and was so hard to leave. I kept my sewing machine out and sewed quilts on the dining room table that year on Padre Island.
Anael..I love the pics of your little ones. How they have grown to be out and about to DG's house! Lucky you.
QuiltE...no surprises with those ribbons. Keep up the good work.
Dubib...small boxes are good. The closing is in just a couple of days. Will you be painting or anything in the new house before you move in? So many decisions when moving. I think that's why I always hated it so. Can't take everything.
Mirabelle...It's a good thing that your DH is concerned about your shoulder and is reining you in a little. He LOVES you.
Jeanie...do happy that your home now feels clean even if it is a little empty. Thanks for the pictures of the tables. I think I will wind up with the sewsteady adjustable one instead of an entirely new table. I will never have all of the room I really want for quilting a large quilt I might as well face it.
I've been working on the Aiming 4 Accuracy quilt along and have learned a lot which is crossing over to other quilting. I'm posting a pic of how far along I am. The colors aren't very true but it gives you an idea. The quilt is for my daughter and the main prints are all roses. I'm using the green as my constant and the cream as a second constant. I wanted something neutral to help the prints play together well. Enjoy.Attachment 425208
GardenGal, you have more skills than I; I joined but have not sewn a stitch. Could not download the 'chart' and make it work; dismayed at the last instruction page number four some 17 pages long that wouldn't print out for me. Some 500 people have joined, so I guess that puts me the bottom of the heap where I may peacefully remain. Michele Foster has some interesting designs, but beyond my abilities. Happy that you can sew along with the best of them, and I wish you lots of time, and luck in finishing the project.
