Weekend Happenings

Here in our little corner of the world, life is quite hectic! So much to do and time is so limited!

Yesterday I decided to finish the Baseball Quilt if that's all I got done. I just needed to get it done so I could concentrate on other things. I started on it at 6:30 A.M. and worked on it almost constantly until 9:00 P.M. I am so happy to be almost finished with it. This morning I have already machine quilted two places that needed some more attention and the quilt is spread out on my kitchen table. The only thing left is to remove the blue markings used for quilting lines! This will only take a few minutes and I'll work on that while cooking our Sunday dinner. I will post a picture of it when finished!

I learned this lesson: I will never commit to making a quilt for someone to give as a Christmas gift unless I start on it in the Summer time!

My son has goats and 3 of them are large with kid!!! (LOL) Well, yesterday he announced that one of them had twins and as soon as they weren't so "slimy" he'd show us. I was sewing on the quilt and I heard the loudest bleats you have ever heard and saw that he had brought one of them inside. It was so cute!!!!! I rubbed his/her head and she stopped making any noise. I guess even baby goats know a mother's touch!

I am already working on our Sunday dinner this morning before church. I'll be putting some things in the crockpot, etc.

Have a great 2nd Sunday of Advent. I would like to post some pictures later on of some of the goings on here!

Congrats! on the new baby goats! Your son would love my daddy... the goat man! He has had goats ever since my children were little ones and we have seen lots of baby goats. They are so pretty and we still enjoy seeing the wee ones. Enjoy your new "grand" goats. (I'm glad you are getting the baseball quilt done. I hope the person you are making it for appreciates a true work from the heart.)

She's Here! Victoria!

Its been an exciting week! Victoria arrived on Monday and I kept her brother for 3 days. Only bad thing is that today I am home from work ...
