I had a fabulous time babysitting DGS--but--there is a reason we have our children when we are younger. That little guy ran us ragged. But fun too. We, he and I, had a confrontation one day. He elected to stay in his naughty corner rather than concede. He is his father's son. I can still remember having a similar stand off with his daddy at about the same age. The battle of wills might still be going on if his granddad hadn't brought home some watermelon. Surrender. (Thank goodness). All…Continue
What a week! Julie brought this quilt of Barbara's to Vintage Stitchers on Thursday:

Just returned from the Minn Quilt show in Duluth. What an incredible collection of quilts! I was inspired and overwhelmed at the same time to walk around and look at all of the quilts and the high caliber of quilting represented. It has become an annual event to share time with a quilting friend who enjoys quilting as much as I do - we take a class, check out all the new gadgets and ideas in the quilting world. Explore and find fun little cafe's along the way. Back to the real world tomorrow…Continue
