Hello everyone. Sorry I haven't been around lately. Just needed to get my head on straight and breath for a while. Not sure where to go after my last post. Sugarbear and I are back to work. In fact he had to open a new store already. That kept him from home for 1 1/2 weeks. He just got back this past Wednesday. He's very tired. DD and family are coming in for a short visit today. They will be there by the time I get home. I can't wait to hug those little twinsies! Bri calls them the Dacies (their names are Gracie and Macie). She's finally getting big enough to say their names but never gets the right name w/the right girl...of course I have the same problem! Speaking of Bri-she and Mia both have colds right now. Bri is heading to the Grand Canyon this Sunday for a whole week w/her other grandparents. I have a feeling she's going to pitch a fit every night cuz her daddy won't be there. She is quite the daddy's girl. Mia is staying home unless her mom decides to go too. It's just too much for the other grandma to handle them both plus the cousins for a week. Can't say as I blame her. These 2 little girls are a handful!

On the quilting front-I started and finished a scrappy quilt top right after C left us. I wanted to sew but just couldn't be bothered w/thinking and planning something. I also made a strippy puppy quilt w/matching pillow and burp cloths for a baby shower at work this coming Monday. I really like how it turned out and the pattern will be my "go to" pattern for baby showers for a while! Sugarbear and I went out and bought fabrics to make a C wallhanging. All the fabrics represent something that made us think of him...bikes, spiderwebs, music notes and doves (they released 1 at his funeral). Anyway others might not think the fabrics go together but we know better...I plan on using a t-shirt picture of him in the middle of the wallhanging.

We're leaving for vacation in just 1 short week. I'd like to get a few little gifts made before leaving. It'll depend on if Mia cooperates and goes to bed at night on time!

Well, that's about it for now...sorry no pics today.
