    Relax, Mom, breathe. Enjoy your time apart. When she comes back and she wants to do something quilty, make sure you have lots of time to do it so there can be rest periods. I suspect the time constraints for gettng these done before THE TRIP added to the frustrations. And it is so interestng that kids can be nice when it is not family involved. :?
    When she is older, she will only remember that she got to make these presents. Give her a big hug before you send her off to St.Louis. (BTW, it is HOT here right now!) :lol:

    You can't believe this right now, but I only remember the GOOD things now - DD is 46 and DS in 45. I KNOW there WERE times when I clenched my jaws and ground my teeth, but my memories are of the happy times! Now DD has a 17 year old, and DD's grinding HER teeth. DGD is dropping by with DSIL for a visit this afternoon - grandma heaven!

    Yes, little miss Sophia is as sweet and big-hearted as they come. UNTIL she doesn't want to be. Then she's an unbelievable bear...

    She loves her little cousins and they worship her! she spends a lot of time taking care of them, learning how to babysit. She's in charge, and they love it!

    I'm almost over how mad I was yesterday and this morning...

    I envy you (it's a happy envy) the joy of sharing the quilting connection with your daughter. None of my daughters were intersted in sewing, but I'm hoping I can entice my grandaughter when she is old enough to appreciate what sewing and quilting is all about.

    Those budding quilters did an awesome job! Just beautiful!

    BRAVO to all of them.
    You better hide your stash!!!



    Ok, what's with the lady in the background of that one picture picking her nose? lol I HAD to mention it. Now everyone go back and look! lol
    You are sooo bad, but I thought the same thing when I saw that picture!

    The quilts are great! What a really good idea. How many days was the camp & how many hours per day?

    She did a great job on those two other quilts. She must have a heart of gold to want to make some for her cousins!! Hang in there mom, I actually had a great time with my girls as teens (most of the time)

    This cracks me up to see this resurrected again! Yes, it was a fun time last year. I hope I can talk her into doing it again this summer.

    Good idea to hook them while they are young - that way you have someone to inherit your stash when you are gone! (I have no idea what my kids are going to do with my stuff, but it makes me sad just thinking about it.)
