Stars for Finn
Yes Finn, we are all still here, just a bit busy! Today was the homecoming game here in Auburn and friends had their annual pancake breakfast. After eating breakfast we hit the grocery store. We got home at 9:56 to discover that the b-day party my kids were supposed to go to starts at 10, not 10:30! So we rush back out the door. The party was at a place called the Sports Academy. They played dodgeball, tug-o-war, and had batting practice. Wore them out! Came home, had lunch, and then I insisted we all take a nap! Tonight for dinner we had "supper club" at a friends house. A group of 4 couples takes turns, one each month, having the group over for dinner. We all get to try new dishes and don't have to cook! Last nights dessert was especially good - chocolate cheesecake! We got home in time to get the kids bathed and in bed by 8:30 pm at which point I too was ready to collapse.
This star quilt is one I made for my newest nephew, Denver, who was born in July. Still haven't met him but we are headed his direction in November. The pattern is one I saw in a magazine and then drafted the stars myself. The magazine used 4 different colors for the star points. I love blue and yellow so I used my scraps for this one. I really like how it turned out.
Finn - I promise to try and be better about posting more often!
Hope everyone is having a good weekend!
