I've been a very bad girl!

No, I haven't done anything illegal! I just haven't posted in ages! I really thought that things would slow down over the summer but boy was I wrong!!! Where do I start? Let's see, I've dropped out of Binky Patrol in order to focus on starting a Prayers and Squares group at my church. I've been praying about this since the beginning of the year and really feel this is where God is leading me. I'm going to see if I can hook up with the P&S website on my sidebar. I haven't done that in a while and have forgotten how...I've been busy trying to create a stash of quilt tops for when we make the announcement that P&S's is going. I have a feeling we may have several that want quilts right away. I found some blocks at an estate sale and am putting them together for one. I also had 2 ladies send me some PIGS and have finished the tops from them. I have a scrappy top about 1/3 the way finished too. I'd like to have 10-15 ready before the beginning of the year but need to pray about it more and see what God thinks...after all it's not up to me!

I've been busy quilting, knitting dishcloths, and doing embroidery as well. I've started a memory quilt to honor my wonderful stepson. I have it sandwiched but when I started to do a practice piece before quilting it realized I didn't have the right kind of thread. My machine seems to love Guttermann for quilting. Weird huh? Anyway, I went to get the thread and Joann's was having a thread sell so they were out of black. I finally got it this past week so I can get back to C's quilt soon. But first I need to quilt a baby shower gift for the beginning of October. I'd also like to start on a Christmas quilt for a certain DSIL who shall remain nameless but has asked for one.

The little girls are doing fine. We're taking my 2 DS's, their GF's and DS#2's litttle girls to Disneyland next weekend. This is Bri's reward for potty training. We will be having breakfast with Lilo and Stitch and friends. I sure hope the girls don't clam up and get scared.

Are you ready for some big GREAT news? We're grandparents again! Sugarbear's daughter had her son...that's right our first grandson! He's adorable. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera when we went to see him...see yet another bad thing I did. I promise to make up for it next time though.

I'm gonna run and see if I can play around with my sidebar now...I promise to do better and come back sooner!
