I Like Thursdays #21

Labor Day Weekend At The Beach


Every morning these guys come over for hot cocoa.
I love traditions.


Aunt DeeDee has a wagon.
I don't know how many rides Granddog Sadie had.
I wonder how many miles were put on the wagon this weekend.


Holiday weekends are for napping and if you score both comfy chairs,
use them to your fullest advantage.
It's perfect when your Poppy covers you up with a quilt and
puts little Jessie in to snuggle with you.


This boy loves the dogs!
All dogs.
I wish I could hear the conversation.
I had to take the picture through the window
because there was no way I would mess up this partnership.


Fun times on the beach.


We went to the family reunion of my good friend.
This is the first time our grandkiddos have met.
They were fast friends!
Pretty soon, electronics were put away and real play happened.
Lots of running and laughing!


I took some time to assess Wild & Goosey.
How many more blocks do I need,
how many more scraps do I need to gather and
how many more little sashing strips I need to cut.
These blocks are soon to be made into a quilt tip.


We had to come home.
The view from the top of the bridge in Astoria was marvelous!
But it's not a good spot for a picture.
This is as you are coming off the bridge.


Passenger seat knitting happened.
I made some good progress on my socks.

your posts tell me a lot about your values. A kind and happy family life, making beautiful things, taking time to just be at the beach and share life. The socks are really pretty, don't you love seeing the rows add up after knitting?

Those boys are too cute. And I'm envious of your granddaughter's nap. Wild and Goosey looks so intricate. Nicely done.

Family time is always the best...especially at the beach.

The wagon looks fun, and that chair looks so comfy. Love the way your quilt is shaping up.

Looks like another fun time with your family! I love the picture of your granddaughter taking a nap all covered up in a quilt. And Wild and Goosey looks beautiful!

Looks fun was had by all. Wild and Goosey is going to be a great scrap quilt. Good to see people in jackets - ours are still packed away til this heat goes away. Thanks for sharing, Judy.
