    I stayed in the kitchen making egg rolls while little man played out back in a hole and the dirt. It is amazing as to what can make a child happy.

    I love it!! No computer, no gameboy and he is having a great time. would like to see more kids doing this. Usually they're inside playing video games. What a cutie he is!

    Thank you. He doesn't have the patience for vidoes games but he can sit down and put child puzzles together.

    I worked and then picked up the little one from school and went to JoAnns. 26 yards of clearance fabric & 9 simplicity patterns... Spent $72.45 and saved a whopping $143.51. That's like $2 per yard for the fabric and the patterns for free. SOOO happy I made the trip down there now!!!

    Cute little guy! Just my style, playing in the dirt.

    I finished cutting out my 1.5" pieces for the postage stamp swap. Yahoo! I'm done with all 15 sets, and a few extra for the host.

    The best part of the day was having 2 grandgirls over...we filled the car with gas, got milk & assorted goodies, had a tea party, washed the car, jumped in the water in the driveway, and went to the park where we got incredibly sandy (if you're wet from washing the car, the sand sticks to you). And then it was time to get some water to drink and drive home in the convertible with the top down.

    And now I'm on my way to my first visit ever to Hobby Lobby...which I'd never heard of before I joined this board. Hope I find some good gadgets!

    Both grandkids spent Friday night( Sydney8,Dylan5) and after breakfasdt we headed out to The Gap for clothes shopping. Fun seeing what an 8 year old girl will pick out when on her own!!LOL Then it was to Beef O'Bradys for lunch, and then home for playing outdside. They love riding their bikes here, and swinging on the treee swing. Later we made Cocoa Drop cookies(candy). Big mess, lotds of fun and now they have gone to spend the week-end with their daddy. and grandma and grandpa are worn out!! Loved every minute with them!!!!

    I am finishing the machine embroidery blocks for a 50 state bird/flower redwork quilt. I only have a few to go, been working on it all week. I've been wanting to make this for a long time so it's worth the work.

    I packed up boxes to be mailed. Koressa just turned 7 so we sent her a bunch of new clothes and a winter jacket for her and one for Sayra.
    And I sent out Miss Nat's doll quilt for her Piggy.

    Then back into the sewing room to work on some 18 x 18 quilt blocks.

    I worked and don't have Monday off. Still, the weekend is supposed to be New England Fall beautiful and I love it! I was supposed to have a quilting party Sunday, but life intervened in just about everyone's life, so I had to cancel. But that's ok, I need to clean up and organize piles on the floor (not fabric) but books and papers.

    By the way, your littel man is very handsome!

    It was so nice out today, I hated to stay inside. But, if I am going to get this king sized quilt done for Christmas, I have to keep working on it! I need to do a few things outside, so part of tomorrow I plan to be outside getting my vitaminD!!! :D

    I made a 150 mile round trip to NJ to pick up my block for the Civil War tribute quilt and to start this years Saturday Sampler. It's a trip that normally takes @ and hour and twenty minutes one way, that took almost two and a half because of the Philly's game tonight.

    I spent the beautiful day ironing my recently washed purchases from tropicalquilter.com and finishing up the quilting on a client's quilt.

    Suzan, I'm wondering where you live and where you shopped! Maybe at Pennington Quilts? I'm in Bucks County, wearing red and watching the Phillies even as I type this. (GO PHILS!)

    I was loading a quilt onto my HQ Avante and a new friend dropped by - we got to talking so much they whole day flew by - now I have to get back to loading my quilt.
    The little guy looks like he is having a good time. Kids are amazing at that age.

    DH and I had a WONDERFUL day in Nashville at Cheekwood (Art Musuem/Botanical Gardens) seeing the Chihuly glass installations in the gardens. It was about 85 and a fabulous day for a picnic and seeing the beautiful gardens!!!

    We went to the apple orchard. We bought apple cider, doughnuts and apples. Then we went to the nursery and got two pumpkins and some beautiful mums. All of this with my 3 year old DGS. It was a beautiful day!!

    I spent my day with my wonderful pre-teens and teenagers -- I teach. :D I then came home, cooked dinner, took the "girls" (my furbabies) outside for a while and took some pics of them, chatted with my neighbor, my sweetie built a fire in the firepit, and then we sat outside on the swing and enjoyed the beautiful fall evening. 8-) For the rest of the weekend I will be quilting. I really have to finish a wedding quilt I 'm working on! :roll: :oops:

    I had to be outside today. It was absolutely glorious out!
    I raked all the black walnuts up, took a walk, worked outside and enjoyed every minute of it.
