"L" is SOOOO big!!
Wow! I didn't realize that my last post was my 100th one. Hmm, should have made it special. Oh well. I have been SO busy. This is one of my husband's busiest times of the year, making it mine! He runs a big softball tournament indoors and I do the all the food for the staff of 60 and college coaches (300). And have no method of cooking since it's held indoors at an athletic fieldhouse. Which means I have to cook and prepare everything ahead of time and then figure out how to get it all warmed up and served with limited electric. I always make my fudgy brownies. It's funny, one of the umpires asked me when he first saw me if I brought my brownies. They are worth breaking your diet over! I can't brag too much, because they are from a mix, but a very special one. :) And then he takes a huge crew over to Europe for a big tournament there and my daughters and their husbands have to go and help and I stay home with the grandkids. My Mom flew up to help me this year. Last year, I did it by myself and got the flu. Not a good thing with (2) 2 year olds and a 5 year old! And this year there was a 9 month old baby. But we got along great and it was a huge help to have another adult to help. The picture is of the 9 month old--we taught him to do "SOOO BIG" and patty cake. What a cutie!
When everyone went home I received a package in the mail of a pattern and fabric. I'm sewing some blocks for a well known quilter for a new pattern. TINY---DOUBLE blanket stitch on lots of curves and circles. It's going to be a gorgeous quilt when it's done! I don't have permission to reveal it yet, but I figure it wouldn't hurt to show a teaser! So, my last 4 days have been hunched over a sewing machine! I'll share the full picture when I'm allowed. :) And now on to finish the Quilt Pink quilt. But first a little side trip to the quilt store. She is having a special where all machines brought in for cleaning, etc. are only $9.95! What a deal! I hope there's not a limit! heeheehee I have all those classroom machines that need done and $10 is a LOT cheaper than $60 each!
