Woo Hoo Great week

 Well, finally things are starting to look like normal again after, what, a year now. Then getting sick two weeks ago didn't help. LOL The end of this week though things in my head started feeling better and along with them I got some motivation to get moving and get sewing.
  I am happy to say I layered my grand daughters wall hanging so it is ready for some time at the machine. Then I got the quilt out that I am hand quilting and I have put a couple of hours into it already. The weather has been nice out side, but that means it is kind of hot in the house. The A/C won't come on and why turn it on if we really don't need it. However that makes it hot enough that getting under a quilt is not as appealing as it would be if it was cooler. The weather man keeps promising us cool fronts, but so far they have not given us cold, just cool.
  I have been out for a while, so let me tell you I had a wonderful time in Chattanooga in Sept. We played hard and we enjoyed our grandchildren. We got to go to a soccer game and just plain hang out with them
 At the Aquarium, there is a tropical butterfly enclosure on the top floor of one building.
It was so cool when one landed on my son in laws shirt.

Hubby and granddaughter had funn playing in the shark cage. 

We got to see three families of penguins with babies. The daddy's had been taken out for the day to get some exercise and food. They were going crazy trying to get back to their babies. 
  I have some great pictures of the creatures we saw and of other things we did, but the site isn't letting me add them the way I want to. So until next time yall have a very quilty week.

UFO Challenge for the End of the Year

  Well, I have several things I would like to say ,so I will start with the title one. One of the Yahoo groups I am in has started a UFO Challenge for the end of the year. Three projects between now and Dec. 31,2013. I have chosen the wall hanging I started for my granddaughters birthday last Dec., a baby quilt I started almost 3 years ago and a hand quilting project I should have finished 4 years ago. I get started on it and some major world changing problem hits my family. I think that is all over now and I will be able to finish it quickly now. I am believing that.
  The next thing I need to talk about is the fact that I got an email from someone saying that I have 24 followers on some free.... website. I have not given any one or any websites my permission to publish my blog. So if you happen to be reading this on any site other than my blogspot, I would appreciate if you would come over and post a comment for me. I am not sure how I will take care of it, but I will start with complaining to Google for allowing someone other than me to forward it to some other website. I have read about this one another blog and I thought I did what she recommended, but maybe I haven't.
  I have been MIA for a long time, I am sorry for that, but family life has been stressful and busy for so many months now. My mom and daughter are still living in their homes without them being completely finished. We ,just this week, have gotten the moisture barrier under both of the room additions. That means the underpinning can be completed under those rooms now. Once that is done we will be clear for a few months at least. We still have to finish out the insides of those rooms, but will have time to do that as we can afford it. So excited to see the light at the end of this tunnel.
  I spent a week with my daughter in TN in Sept. , we had a great time, I will post pictures in a day or so. We saw the Aquarium, and Rock City both in the same day. Then we went to Lynchburg, TN to visit the town and tour the Jack Daniels distillery. I will have more on all of that next time, so until then yall have a very quilty week.
