This is Mr. Elliot's first attempt at a sippy cup. He didn't do too bad. It was more fun to play with it that to try to drink out of it.
Wow the last 2 weeks have flown by. Crystal and Elliot have been staying with us and will leave on Friday evening for Phoenix. I am trying my darnest to keep myself together. Sometimes, that's pretty tough. I'm going to miss them so much. It didn't take long to get used to the smiles and lovies I get as soon as I walked in the door from work. We already have plans to go down to visit in just a few weeks.
As for sewing, do I own a sewing machine or 12??? I haven't touched them. I'm getting in as much smoochie time as I can. I have been working on my applique blocks a bit at work. I think I only need to do 10 or 12 more. They really don't take that long when I just keep at them. A few stitches here, a few more there and I can complete one in a shift at work. I think I'll make that my goal. For the rest of August, I will try to complete 1 block a day at work. Right now that doesn't sound too ambitious.
Crystal had planned to get 2 of her quilts quilted while they were staying here but that hasn't happened either. I'll probably load one of them on Sunday and get started on it. I want to take them down to her on our visit. I also have a couple of Sonya's to get done before our quilting retreat. Probably wouldn't be a bad idea if I got one of my own finished also. Right now, I can't think of anything of mine that I have finished this year to take for show and tell. I think my brain is tired.
I should have my new templates and ruler mate tomorrow. That will inspire me more than anything else. I love playing with new toys.
Beddy bye time now,
I need my sleep if I'm going to stitch tomorrow.
