Labor Day

Surprise! A friend of my kiddos came over tonight. Actually, I've adopted Tim, but we aren't telling his parents!!! We ordered pizza and played a game of Scrabble. I thought this was funny......



Who plays a 7 letter word that earns you 9 points? Well, I do. I couldn't let such an excellent word pass by unused, regardless of the points. I love words.....points are a bonus! LOL

Then, my adult children began to act a bit, um, crazy, and I left the room....right after I took these pics! So glad that we could spend time together....and that they still want to spend time with me. They are the best.










And, here is another finish, although I might be cheating to call it a finish....since I'm not the one who finished it!!!!! This is the top I made, just for fun, before I knew my sister would be having the most adorable baby girl. So, I told mom if she would quilt it, we could give it to Dear Niece (aka Dear Grandbaby) together. So, here is the top made by Aunty and hand quilted by Grandma.





Now, off to sleep and we'll see what tomorrow brings.

Happy Quilting!!!

Kids are fun! I'm glad to see the quilt finished and I love it. Good job Grandma! I am also very glad you all didn't have to leave the comforts of home. I know you were relieved. We are still here in Florida. Love to everyone.

Paula, we like to play scrabble too! But we play it online. And did you know that if you use all seven letters it's called a "bingo" and you get something like double or tripple amount of your whole word?? I don't know the amount for sure, because i only ever got one, and the computer scored it automatically for me.

VERY pretty quilt!

I used to love scrabble but haven't played in years. Living alone does have it's drawbacks!
Yur little quilt is beautiful. I love the colors you used. I haven't done quilting in a long time but every time I see the beautiful work of others, I am inspired.
I just started crocheting baby blankets to donate to local charities.A stitch and a prayer for the dear little ones.

We play Upwords which is put out by the same company as Scrabble. I used to play Scrabble many years ago. It is a fun game. Funny that you only got nine points for all those letters!
