Today is my precious Mom's birthday!!! She turned 55 today! We had her a little party, it was only us kids and grandkids. She was sooooo sick! She has been sick for several days, I guess it's this old nasty bug but she still managed to smile with her little birthday headband that Chantal got for her!!! I snapped this photo about the time she was eating her cake! Isn't she so pretty, even being sick??? Most of you know how close that I am to her, I could not ask for a better mother than what she has been.
I haven't had a chance to sew any today as of yet, but hopefully I can get a block or two done before bed. I did these two yesterday, so I am getting closer!!!!
Yesterday after Richard got home from work we worked on the house for a little while. I was so hot, 94 degrees so he made me go inside until he got the wall nailed together. Then I went out and helped him stand it. It is hard to tell much about it in the photo but this wall is in 4ft from the edge. We will have a barnstyle roof so the outer part will have a slant to it. We came in 4 ft to make storage for me. This is the 20 ft wall in my sewing room and the two large openings that you see will be shelving for fabric and supplies. Richard has to work tonight but hopefully after he gets home and takes a nap we can get a little more done.
Andrew has a friend staying the weekend, so I'm sure I will be up late every night! You know how teenage boys are......very LOUD! Maybe I can sew and my machine will ground out the noise!!!!!
