I just bought him a new pair two months ago! They grow so fast. While we were there, they decided to get him his first haircut. He sat in his dad's lap and was so good, just smiled and didn't even flinch when she brought out the clippers!

I have lost a quilting magazine with the Saints Quilt pattern in it. I don't remember which magazine it was in, but since the Saints won the Super bowl this pattern was in it.
If anyone has the magazine and willing to sell it to me please PM me. Or if you can tell me which magazine it was in so I can contact them to see if they might have one in stock I could buy.
I've looked everywhere I can think of in my house for this particular magazine and it's nowhere. This from one

I've been up since 5 a.m. and have done nothing worthwhile. I want to get at my sewing but lack motivation. I've walked into the sewing room a dozen times but walked back out again without sitting at the sewing machine. I don't want to do housework..perish the thought!!!...or anything else. Just been walking around or sitting at the computer.
I had a fabulous trip to International quilt festival at the beginning of the month. I spent 3 1/2 days in the quilting bubble and it felt great. Wednesday night was preview and I saw about 1/3 of the displayed quilts. I knew art quilting was big, but I had no idea that it would outweight the tradtional pieces. They are creative, yes, but since I don't like to put quilts on my walls, they don't interest me.
Thursday was spent looking at more juried quilts and in class with Cindy
Wow, I love these four day work weeks. I didn't do any sewing or knitting last night. I was too tired. I rested up and I will go back into my sewing room tonight to get some stuff ready to workon this weekend. I want to cut out my bow tuck bag pieces, and I want to start cutting out potholders for Christmas gifts. I also want to retry the hexagon table topper again. I think I know why it didn't work the first time, so I'm going to try it again and pay better attention to the instructions instead
