A peaceful Sunday

Sweetie spent the night with us last night and she was a very good girl. She did cry a bit at bedtime but that's normal. She slept all by herself, like a big girl, in her own room. About 9:30 this morning I heard a soft little voice saying, "Nanneeee, Nanneee" over and over again. No urgency in her voice, just saying my name. It almost sounded as though she was saying it to herself.
I took these pictures of Sweetie last week when we were here for the day on Tuesday. I love her little fingers holding the "flower". She wasn't being punished in the picture where she's sitting. She looks like she's lost her last friend, though. The camera just happened to capture her expression at that exact moment. The very next second she probably threw up her hands and jumped up to run in the grass. She is non stop these days. Keeps her Papaw on the go.
One more little quilt for the day. A co-worker has a new great grandbaby girl and it's a perfect excuse to build another quilt! lol I can't wait to get this one quilted. It's such a soft, pastel color along with the white. It'll be perfect for a little girl.

Hope everyone had a perfect Sunday. Jim is watching the Cowboys. The season has begun!

Is it Fall yet?

It has been almost a month since I last posted. Jim asked, "Why?" "Well", I said. "I haven't finished anything I want to share!" And, I've been lazy about writing, truth be told. I want to apologize to those of you not on Facebook. I have been posting pictures there since I'm not expected to write a whole lot. So, I thought I'd update here.

Labor Day weekend has been spent working on several different projects. The pink, green and blue quilt and the circle quilt were both finished last week.
The green, blue and dotted baby quilt was easy enough to do. I finished the top in one day and quilted it the next.

I'd had the cloth book kit in a drawer for a while now so I decided to put it together. Easy enough and since Sweetie loves books, I couldn't wait to make it for her.
Speaking of Sweetie, see her peeking out from behind the couch cushions? She loves to play with her Nani Veronica.

She loves her Ross, too. Her monkey goes with her everywhere these days. We had a coloring session after lunch and before naptime. If one crayon works, two work better! lol
Last, but not least, check out Robert and Jim in front of the backyard shed they built over the Labor Day weekend! Not too shabby, fellas! I've said it before and I'll say it again...I'm proud of you!

I hope everyone had a peaceful and safe weekend.
