I have been in Kansas for the past few weeks, spending time with my kids and grandkids who live there. I enjoy my time there very much and leaving is incredibly difficult as I know that I will be missing them terribly by the time I reach my seat on the plane. The grandkids seem to be growing up without me and I miss being able to watch it all first hand.
Now that I am home, it is time to get back to sewing and I will share with you all the cute patterns and fabric that I purchased while in Kansas. But until then... I just had to share these pictures of a mother turkey and her little ones that showed up in my front yard this morning. I have lived here for thirty years and have never seen a wild turkey in my yard..... ever. We have hawks, vultures, owls,...in fact birds of every variety it seems.. but never turkeys. Snakes, lizards, squirrels, and rabbits abound all over our property, along with coyotes, but again this little family is a first for us. So I just had to share. I'm thinking they are coming for the blackberries that my son-in-law planted up on the side of the yard.... at least that's where the mom and her little ones hung out for some time. So much for fresh berries on my oatmeal.... sigh.. and I was looking so forward to that.
I am leaving for two weeks to visit my daughters and my grandchildren who live in Kansas City. I do not get to see them very often so I am really looking forward to my trip. Before I leave however, I wanted to share with you, two more finished blocks. It will be nice to finally have them all finished and ready to quilt.
Until I get back.... blessings, Debbie
I'm taking a little time out today to share a recent picture taken of some of my family members and me up in Anaheim, CA. The five of us, along with others who work with my husband, were working at a booth at a seminar that was being held at the Disneyland Hotel. I realize that this is a far cry from my usual sewing posts, but I wanted you to see some of my husband along with some of my kiddos. In the picture below, beginning on the far left, is Don, (an engineer) Rebekah, (one of our four daughters) John, (one of our three sons) me, my husband Jim, Tom, (another engineer) our daughter Nicole, and Lance, (one of our incredible employees). This is the third year that we have participated at this particular show/seminar in regards to construction defect litigation. I love being with the kids... and my husband, and thought you might like to see some of my family together.
Married for 46+ years & raising 7 great kids out in the country has been an adventure of a lifetime. Now that the darlings are all grown up, and most, raising little darlings of their own, I am able to get down to the business of sewing. Come join me and let's share together.
