Tomorrow is officially our granddaughters 2nd birthday and she had her party yesterday so we drove into Calgary to partake in the festivities! Afterwards Hubby, Son2 and I went to Red Lobster....a treat we won't do often as I spent a weeks worth of groceries for that meal but everyone enjoyed it so that's all that matters. Definition of a TREAT: "something very pleasant and enjoyable"! 😏
Me and my birthday girl!!
The collage Daughter2 did for her FB post tomorrow....oh they grow and change so much in only 2 years!!!!!
The apron I made her as she received a play kitchen for her birthday....and it was full of accessories by the end of the party!! 😃
Son1 took our grandson for a (pretend) skate last weekend. He scooted him around the ice on his boots and he loved it! I'm sure he will have him skating by next winter....he will be 2 1/2.
I miss this little man and will be heading up for a visit very soon!
I haven't been doing much sewing.....I still haven't found that mojo! But I have been stitching a bit and made myself a new pressing mat for my big table I decided to unfold and use! Why have it if I am not using it right????? It's a little squishy going around each end but I know I will love the bigger space for pressing AND cutting!
I stitched the first block in a mystery by Sew Blessed. The Mystery BOM is called Faith, Family, Friends and I believe is available for free on the Wool Appliqué group on Facebook...in the files....until the next one comes out. You can order kits from their website www.sewblessed.us I did mine on a wool background and I think it should have been flannel so will do that for the next ones.
I am part of American Patchwork and Quiltings FB group and they have a UFO challenge. The project I am supposed to complete this month is my trucks and trees wool table-mat and I have been making progress! I would be happy to finish in the next week and a half! 👍 We were to make a list of 12 UFOs (Lord knows I have waaaaaay more than that!) which we wanted to complete this year. Numbered 1 - 12 they chose a number at the beginning of the month and that is the project we are to complete. We will see.......maybe I will have a great year finishing 12 projects!! Now, as long as I don't start 12 more! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! 😆
Off to stitch! I hope anyone reading this is enjoying their day and here's to a great week ahead!
