Natalie's Baby 9

This is my new grand daughter's quilt that I delivered to CA in July. I love this pattern. This is the second one I have made for grand daughters. My next baby quilt needs to be done by Feb., Sherry and Brandon are expecting a baby boy. I don't have a favorite boy quilt pattern, will have to start looking.

Ice Cream Ride

I just got back from a motorcycle ride with friends. I went as a passenger since I haven't really shopped for a bike yet. We went 77 miles for ice cream and the shop was closed!! We were told they were open on Sundays - ? That is the farthest I have ever gone just for ice cream! It was 100 degrees today so we were pretty happy when we found a Dairy Queen. It was a fun day even with all that heat.

Not much sewing going on this weekend. I did do a little garage organizing, hung some shelves, and found some long lost needlework. I also found a sack of acorn squash that my brother brought to me last Nov. It was not a pretty sight.

Off for a cool shower and then a little sewing. I'm back to the DWR. I have 9 more sections to put together and then I can start putting it into rows.

Mission Accomplished

This is what I did the whole weekend. Motorcycle classes started on Friday evening, continued all day Saturday and we finished up today. I passed both the skills and the written test. Now all I have to do is go to the DMV and take another written test and I'm good to go. I never thought I would be riding a motorcycle at my age. Just goes to prove you can still teach an old lady new tricks. I have enjoyed the class and am looking forward to getting my own bike.
