So time has gotten away from me a little… I haven’t been sewing much lately because I have had company. My nieces from Iowa & my in-laws came to spend some time with us! We had plenty of fun, maybe a little too much fun! We showed the girls a grand old-time. I’m sure they will be begging to come visit again soon!
We spent some time at the park, the pool, Como zoo, the arboretum, & the wildlife refuge. We slept in a tent, had s’mores, planted flowers, made muffins & pancakes & french toast, tried out knitting, had a splashy good time in the back yard, & the kids all had a great time playing with their cousins!
Eagles & their nest, Canadian geese, a Swan, ducks, lots of deer flies & mosquitos, other birds & lots of pretty flowers.
We usually see more wildlife, but it was pretty hot, so I’m assuming they were somewhere trying to stay cool.
We slept in the tent to give A her first experience sleeping outside! She loved it! I’m so glad we didn’t do it the night before because it stormed REALLY hard!
It was wonderful spending so much time with A&L! The last time we saw them was at Christmas, so I hope next time isn’t such a long time!
This is the fabric I’m using for the Summer Sampler Series Quilt Along.
I was hoping to buy my new sewing machine & start re-doing the kid’s bedroom this week, but my husband lost his job on Tuesday. 😦 So I will be holding off on all extra expenses until he is employed again!
So cross your fingers & toes & hope that he finds a job he loves soon! If you know of any great Mechanical Engineering jobs out there, let me know.
