I'm hoping everyone is having a good day.

The smoke here is awful, at 4:00 pm while we didn't need lights on outside, you could stare directly at the sun which looked like an orange frisbee in the sky.

I'm sure others will want to argue, but I have the most amazing grandbaby!! He is such a little person already, he very much takes after his mama in looks, but it is so funny to see my son's facial expressions come out.

My daughter-in-law's family is wonderful and quality people full of love and I am full of hope for the future. So far Leon is the only member of his generation on my side of the family, but he will have cousins and childhood friends a-plenty.

I know that so many of my friends' households and children aren't doing so well. We are so lucky that my son has kept his job this whole time and while I have very few positives to say about this past year, it allowed all of them, particularly my son, to have almost all of that special first year together. He's been doing full time dad detail while working from home since Liz returned to work a couple of months ago.

Just wanted to check in and say that I have made my final decision on my border for jaba's center and will work on that this week.

Great to see new borders being added pretty regularly!!

According to the tracking/post office, LeeAnn's center coming to me from Rebecca should be arriving any time now!

How exciting!! I'll get to open it up and bring it to my Tuesday group tomorrow and be able to really start thinking about it.

Still packing and getting the house ready for our trip. Air quality still bad out here, I posted pictures (on page 3) from my back yard in this thread yesterday:

You can see how dry the yard is, to be truthful most of us here do have brown lawns in summer -- but we have gorgeous green lawns in December!

WOW!!! I love it, can't wait to see where it goes from here.

I spent most of the weekend assembling my husbands new desk since he will be working form home for the foreseeable future.
I also finished the wonky log cabin donation quilt top.
My husband is only working Tues, Wed and Thurs the next couple of weeks so my sewing time has decreased.

LeeAnn, I received Rebecca's top today. Thanks! I plan to post a picture of it later this week, along with a picture of the round I'm doing. I have an appointment after work on Tuesday and feel a little swamped with what's going on here.

Remember girls, we all will need to plan carefully for our Round 4 as it will take longer to sew!

My package did arrive yesterday, just as we were leaving the house to run errands. Among which was going to pick up our coolers from the in-laws. Smoke level means time to drive with lights on now.

We had to move our Tuesday group to outside because of Covid, but we cancelled for today. Between lungs and eyes, even those who don't normally have issues are having them now. I don't notice the smell any more, but I'm going to keep the package sealed under after my trip. Bummer, wanted to open it and show it to the girls, but think it is best to just control myself.

With the Canadian fires a couple years ago we had a lot more ash. This smoke has traveled far enough we don't get much residue but you can sure see it. We did have a couple sprinkles of rain yesterday but not enough to either water the plants or clear the sky. They are hoping for real rain at the end of the week and expect that to help quite a bit. Air quality alert is currently issued through Thursday -- which coincides with the hoped for rain -- and my trip departure!

Carriem, excited to see what you come up with for my quilt. Seems like forever since I've seen it.
Macy, no center yet, maybe it will come today.

Hi everyone, I'm back from a quick trip to our cabin in the woods. The cabin needed new floors so I went with my husband so it was a work trip. We made great strides. I returned home to several great things, one was seeing my quilt top that pleases me greatly. Wonderful job Reba, I love the story behind my round. I also received my next round. I'm telling everyone....the pictures do not do Sewbizgirl's quilt top justice. It is stunning. Thank you everyone for your hard work. This has been a wonderful group.
