My Non-Exciting Wednesday!!

Not alot went on the quilting front today!! Had to make another trip into town today, had to make a second trip to the grocery store. The boys are eating me out of house and home since they are out of school. Anyway, come home and I took a nap on the couch and woke up when Richard got home. We went out to my Mom's house and Richard, Andrew, Chantal and Crystal (her best friend) cut the grass. Mom will be home on the 20th and it really needed to be cut. It is hard for Chantal to cut it herself. So after we came back home, had dinner, and Richard went on to bed and I.......took another nap on the couch! :)

After my second nap, Chantal came out for a few minutes and we were outside I snapped some photos of her. She will kill me for putting these on here, since she doesn't exactly look her best...she had been cutting the grass. :) But that is what sisters do!!!

And here she is sitting on the bench with Andrew. As you can see Andrew had another one of his roosters out. He loves them, we are in the process of building another chicken coop for them. I think Chantal had been talking to mom on her cell, and yes, she is smoking! :( She is 23 and smokes, I tease her all of the time, that I don't smoke because someday I will need to give her a lung!
And while I was out I snapped another photo of some flowers. I have a few of these and they are over my head! Which I guess isn't really saying much considering I'm only 5ft tall.

After all that, feeling depressed because I didn't get any sewing done, I decided I needed to sew alittle before the day was over, so I managed to make another hat.
I also got out my 2 1/2 in scrap squares so that I can work some more on my quilt. I'm not sure yet what exactly I will be doing. Right now I am sewing them into 9 patches and plan on making some sort of Irish Chain. I'm just not sure if it will be a single, double, triple, or some other Irish Chain...Heck, the rate I'm going it may turn in to something else completely!!! :) Hopefully, I can post a photo of what I have done so far tomorrow.
Well, it is now 12:42am and I think I will head to bed and read until I fall asleep...

Enjoyed looking at the pictures. You and your sister really look least in the pictures I've seen.

I wish I looked that good anytime, much less after mowing the lawn. You do look a lot alike. Glad to hear I'm not the only 5' person around here......hehehheheee

I enjoy seeing the flowers. You did a Great job on the caps. Looks like Andrew has a good friend. I love to see boys take interest in something other than sitting at the computer or TV. I took my quilting machine to the shop today, breaking thread to often.

Nine patches combined with either a snowball block or a hourglass setting look great.

You can't smoke because you'll have to give her a lung. That made me laugh! She's still young she'll figure out that it bad for you, makes you look older a lot faster and slowly kills you! When you're young you're supposed to do foolish things! We're supposed to get smarter as we get older.

I think that Chantal and Andrew will avoid you next time you will show up with the camera :) You can tell them they look great (also the rooster).
