Here we are at one of the scenic overlooks on Skyline Drive.
Here's DD at Williamsburg. We rented a costume (long white dress with a purple sash), and bought the hat. She's so cute!
The week after our vacation we continued to be very busy. On Weds we went to the Milwaukee Brewers game.
DD got a new T-shirt at the game. Of course, they lost to the Reds. I don't think they've ever won a game we went to.
No, that's not snow in the picture, just rain. But it felt like snow! So much for finding a Hawaiian shirt!
Then in September, DD started 5th grade. In our small town, 5th grade is the beginning of middle school (5 - 8th). So DD is now in middle school and sometimes wants to dress up like a diva in the mornings and sometimes just wants to hang out in comfortable clothes. Very interesting.
Here's DD on her first day of 5th grade.
Over Labor Day weekend, I attended Bonnie Hunter's class in Auburn, IN for her Boxy Stars pattern. Once again, we had a great time. I got 9 blocks done, just need 3 more.
Ever since I got back from Bonnie's class, I've been working on my Mini Summer Quilt Swap item. I finally got it all pieced and sandwiched last night. Tonight I hope to get it all quilted so that tomorrow night I can put on the binding.
Today I received this wonderful quilt from the lady who had my name.
It came from Marian in SPAIN! Wow! It is so cool and will look great in my entryway. She also sent a bunch of fabric and notions. Very cool gift. It really is inspiring me to get my items completed. Marian's blog is http://www.quiltandpatch.blogspot.com/. Check it out.
I'll try to post more often. Of course, I say that and I'm already planning to be out of town this weekend. But I'll post the picture of my outgoing Summer Quilt Swap quilt before I mail it.
Have a great weekend!
