Sew Day #15

 I sewed my first 'Plus' quilt!  All the blogs have been making them - of course, I'm about 6 months behind the band wagon...
I used my fat quarter bundle "Kumari Gardens" by Dena of Westminister fabrics... I am always so hesitant to start cutting up a fat quarter collection - but didn't hesitate when I saw the 'Plus' pattern.  Perfect for a collection.  I was able to use my 29 fat quarters to make a 4" square plus quilt for a baby and a 6" square plus quilt for me :)

The Grandkids building emergency vehicles at Home Depot

 Rachel invited us after soccer to go to Home Depot with Cole and build an emergency vehicle.  So off we went!
Mel had no fear using that hammer!

 The finished products!  I was helping Mel and I instructed her to nail on the wheels wrong :(  Thank goodness Auntie Rachel was good with directions... she saved the day!
The Kent Fireman were there to help - and were so nice - they let us take a picture of them with the firetruck!  Cole was so excited!  Actually, they all were :)  Thank you KFD!

The Kid's are buying a new house!

Sara and Richard took us up to their new house that they will be moving into next month - so I took the opportunity to take pics!
 The kids already have some garden plots!  They even have a sprinkler system in them!  I get one of them to plant my veggies and herbs each year!  I can't believe I am so lucky!  Then the other two will be the girls... we will have fun planning our gardens!
Since the house was one of the models... it comes with a jungle gym - Melanie is already having fun on the slide!

 I told Sara it was good luck to take a picture of herself in the shower.  I did the same pose 24 years ago when we bought our house.  Too bad I don't have that picture on our computer!
                            A beautiful soaking tub - Life is Good!
Their kitchen is absolutely GORGEOUS!!!!!  So many cupboards!
I love everything about it!  There are gonna be alot of wonderful meals cooked and shared in this room :)
I can't believe I forgot to take a picture of the outside of the house!
Silly me!

Halloween is coming....

Miss Melanie is going to be "Belle" of Beauty and the Beast for Halloween!  The kids are taking the girls down to Disneyland for a week during Halloween so the girls get to wear their Disney costumes while they are there.  Kaylee is going to be "Malificient"!

Happy Grandparent's Day to us!

 We got these adorable Grandparent cards from Kaylee and Melanie.  Kaylee drew a sun and moon which collided and made "Rainbow Dash" my little pony :)  Love the imagination of the girls!  
                           This is Papa walking Lucy!

Parker's Quilt

Sara came and spent the day with me :)  Loved that!  I got her to help sew on Parker's Seahawk's quilt.  Between the two of us we got the top finished - now she will machine quilt it and then I will bind it and wash it up all pretty for Parker :) Notice those pretty pink socks Sara has on!!!!
