Not a whole lot going on here! The snow and ice finally melted and I did my weekly shopping today. That really messed me up! I have my routine and I hate when things get mixed up. I usually do all of that on Fridays, but I could not get the car out of my driveway!!! Oh well, enough of that!
This evening I cleaned up around my sewing machine and sat down and sewed a few more pieces to my Giblets quilt. Here is a photo of the pieces, I don't have them all sewn together but you can get an idea of how it is going to look. This is the quilt that my friend, Lisa and I are making together. She is doing hers in blues and tans and her blocks look great. Even though she lives in another state it is fun knowing that we are doing the same quilt. I'm not sure how large I will make this quilt, I guess until I either run out of the red or I get tired of making the blocks.
Richard worked a little more on the house today, while I was in town. Tomorrow afternoon we will be working on it a little more. I will be sawing while he is on the roof nailing! I tired to tell him before that I couldn't saw to get out of it, but he told me to pretend it was my rotary cutter and fabric!!! He is so silly, actually I don't mind using the saw, after all it is my house too! And it will mean more to know that we built it together.
Now on to an update on Smokey. He is adjusting well. Donkey wants so bad to play with him but I think he is scared of Donkey. They started out with one sleeping on the couch and one on the chair but over that past couple of days they have only gotten this close....
I'm sure in a few more days they will be best friends! At least Andrew is happy and that is all that matters to me!
Anyway, I am finished sewing for the night and we are having some special family time like we do every weekend. We have been watching some movies and playing CHECKERS! We are taking turns playing....Richard and Andrew are playing against each other and Hunter and I are playing each other. Hunter is keeping me very busy too, while the others are playing I have been reading him stories from his Children's Bible. He loves it, actually is was my Bible that my mom gave me for Christmas 30 yrs ago. So it is very precious to me and my kids. Both of them have been read the stories from it. So it has been a wonderful family night!
