I have to tell you, I adore the fact that my offspring are getting a bit older. They really are turning into some of the coolest folks I now. Especially my little gals. Little red has been asking for a sewing machine constantly for about the last six months. When her birthday came around last week we decided she might be old enough for a machine of her own. Eight sounds like a good age to start sewing, right? So there it is. Her sweet turquoise machine sitting right next to mine. I am so excited about the time we will spend together. I love the idea of being able to nurture her creative spirit. She really has a spirit about that is like no one I have ever known. I am so thrilled to see what comes out of that priceless imagination!
Above are a new set of coaster I just finished up. I think I am going to hang them in he kitchen with a ribbon through the grommets. I was pretty satisfied with how they turned out. Maybe matching pot holders?
Abby had her very first track meet last week and it was an event to be sure. My precious hubby was on an awful business trip most of last week (that is if you consider golfing and fine dining every day as awful) and Parker was about at the end of his rope by the time the meet came around. WHAT?! You mean I CAN'T run out on the track in the middle of the race? I CAN'T play in the sand while the long jumpers are still jumping? Let me tell you, it was a LOOOOOONG night. We had a few extra gals with us as well. Because I thought three wasn't quite enough on my own! I was a great night. Really. Abby was wonderful! I am so proud that she is running. It is a lifetime sport I hope she holds onto.
So there it is. The weekend in a nutshell. I hope you all had a great weekend as well. Has anyone else with Blogger realized that it saves for you every few minutes? Sweet!
