Today we were off to a small town about 30 miles north for the girls 3rd. swim meet.
They all won ribbons and a couple of medals
(don't know why this is so light. Normally my cameras pictures are a little on the dark side...go figure)
Anyway, they each swam in 3 events spaced over 3 1/2 hrs. so we spent some time just clowning around in the park adjacent to the pool.
Mr. SS and Brooke
Camy and Brooke
Mommy Olivia and Jack
Brooke is really hugging Emmy although you might think she has her in a choke hold. Look at the hand on the hip.
Over the weekend we celebrated Jack's 6th birthday.
Nope those aren't all my grands. Just 7 of my 10 were there.
It was a swim party and it was hard getting them out of the pool for opening presents.
Here's the shirt I made for Jack. I still haven't gotten a picture of him wearing it. Funny thing...boys don't like to just "try on" clothes like girls do.
I got him some black shorts to go with and I will get a picture.
Last weekend while Mr. SS was golfing and helping put up a patio, I got some sewing done.
This is a lap size baby blanket for a Strawberry Patches customer.
I'm not very good at random, but this was supposed to be "random". I spent quite a while arranging and then rearranging the blocks, thought I had it right and through the eye of the camera saw some blocks in the wrong place and spent quite a while rearranging again. Funny thing...if you move one, you might as well start over.
Oh well, it finally got done and I took it outside today to take a picture before taking it to SP for the customer to pick up.
We have been having strong winds for a couple of days. I laid this out, stood back to snap the picture and somehow the wind blew the branch so that the shadow is on the quilt. Now I did not see that through the eye of the camera.
So I tried again and same thing...darn wind.
Anyway, you get the idea. The pattern, called Cuddle Bug is fairly easy, just time consuming with a satin ruffle and Minkee backing.
One more picture and I'm off to bed. Swim meet wore me out.
Emmy Lou showing off her very stylish bathing suit.
Very rare occasion, because if left up to her she would be swimming in her birthday suit (and often is)
Gotta love that smile.
God is Good!!
Life is Good!!
