Yes I Have Time To Blog

family, Love Entwined - Esther's BOM

We have been busy with our grandson but we were home most of Saturday and while he was here helping Mike with some things and then watching a movie I got some applique done!  Then before I got to bed last night I typed up this quick post and scheduled for Sunday morning –

Love Entwined – progress!  This is what I have done on the center so far – not difficult if you take your time Smile  I have actually been working on this for two days now – the triangles that is – next step little flowers, stems and leaves.  This quilt is one that you need to take your time with and enjoy.  Do not rush if you are doing it.  I read the notes on the yahoo group and so many are trying to come up with ways to make it faster and easier – just take a breath – stop – and think about it – this is an 18 month BOM – enjoy the process – it is ok if it takes longer than 18 months to complete the top!  And always remember there is so much in this quilt that if you don’t have perfect leaves or flowers – really who is going to notice – unless you really want to win a prize with this just slow down and enjoy making it.


I did some fussy cutting on the light taupe purple.


I have shown the sunflowers now and then but have never stood next to them so you can see the height – Utah is now 5 foot 4 inches – grown by leaps this past year and look at the sunflower behind him – 7 feet + ?  I have torn out the flowers that were getting really ratty looking and I imagine in another two weeks they will be a thing of the past and all drying for the next month or two for me to harvest the seeds.


We went to the park last night after supper and saw a mink!  we spotted one last year and we were so pleased to spot another one while he was with us.


Our granddaughter is not visiting but seeing as I have been posting some family stuff I took a couple photos from my daughter – here is our 10 (almost 11) year old granddaughter Ciera – I wish she was here visiting too but she didn’t want to leave her parents yet.

She is a real card!  loves posing for the camera and can come up with a lot of great looks Smile we do so love her and hope to see her in September.

Well be out most of the day – we are delivering Utah to our son-in-laws family for their turn and we will get him back on Saturday.  I doubt I will get any sewing done unless we get home early – I don’t know if we are just making the run up there and back and stop and see anything – depends on the weather – we will be seeing my family next week so do not plan to stop with visiting today.

    Summer’s are always such a good time to connect with family. So glad your grandson has so many people excited to see him. He’s a lucky boy. And when your granddaughter sees how much fun he is having, she will want to join you next summer.
