It Is a New Year

I cannot believe so much time has gone by since I last posted.
I have had some ups and downs like no one's business.
I had a working vacation, because my daughter and her husband bought a home. Yes a real fixer upper. But when it is complete to their liking, it will not even look the same inside. But a lot of work. Even outside, with all the brush that my husband and my son- in- law has cut back/ out, is just amazing. It seems to never stop.
The floors have all had to be pulled up due to being ruined by other owners. All the walls have been painted with KILZ  all. The bathrooms have been scrubbed until the fingers hurt, and then some more.
But it is coming together and it will be a great first home.
I have also went back to working on Saturdays, so even though we were out on Christmas break, I was working. Either at home, my daughters home or at work. And today was our first day back to school.
So because most of everyone in other schools were still out, we had school out- side.
We played hop-scotch while we did our math flash cards. We did our practice spelling test in chalk on the side walk. (The dirt just didn't cut it out back around the pool).
We also had visiter's if you can call mommy a visiter.
Since Punkin was at daddy's house the second part of the break, we didn't get to see her so today was a treat to all be together out in the 89* sunshine. The ground was cool and so was the house so outside was where it was at. Loved it.
So I have managed to get a little sewing done and a little quilt making going, but not like I was hoping for.

 I started a Eleanor Burns pattern called Summer Porch, but I am doing it in Moda, Fig Tree Quilts, Cornucopia.
It will end up a fall bed quilt since it is going to be a king size. I seem to make either laps or kings and no in betweens.
We had a very nice Christmas with all here to celebrate. It was a great time having all the girls home with their guys tagging along. This was one of the best in a very long time.
So with all this said and really there is so much more that could be said but won't be, I will say I hope you all have a great year ahead, and may the Good LORD be with you and guide you and Bless you abundantly.

all the girls

Merry Christmas 2011
         Happy New Year and God Bless you all.
