Happy Mom (and Grandma)

Smiling Mom and Grandma!
 Have you ever seen such a happy camper?  I am smiling like there is no tomorrow...  Well, I had the most wonderful weekend.
My son Tony, Jackson, Me and Kathy (my daughter Andee is taking the picture).

I got to spend Sunday afternoon with my wonderful son, daughter, daughter in law, and grandson.  I treasure every moment I spend with them.


We went to a children's play area by my house (too cold for outside) and Jackson just had a ball (quite literally)!!!  


Also, my stepdaughter (on the right) competed in varsity gymnastics at South, while only 12 years old.  This picture was in the Star/Tribune, the Minneapolis paper on Friday, itsn't it neat?  She and a friend were jumping past each other on the uneven parallel bars.

A wonderful weekend...  love always, Kay

February Goal, A Lovely Year of Finishes, PRACTICE

ALYoF2014
Well, it is February, and as usual I am behind in my BOMs and other things that I need to work on, well need is a strong word, want to work on is better.  I told myself I would not get behind this year, but now I am taking a dyeing class and it takes me a day to get ready for class and then a day to wash and sort the fabric that I dyed.  No complaints, mind you, but the class is taking a lot of time.

Aurifil January BOM
So, for my Lovely Year of Finishes February goal, I am going to complete my February Globetrotting BOM, my Aurifil BOM, and catch up on my FMQ class with Leah Day, the Building Blocks BOM.
Globetrotting January BOM

Now, frankly, the FMQ with Leah Day is the most important to me.  I really need to do this free motion stuff to where I am satisfied.  I have tops to quilt and I have plans for an entry in May to a show, but if I can't get the FMQ I am sunk.  So, I need to practice, practice, practice.  That is a goal, but not a visible one, so I will do the visible and then also do the practice to get better.  Love always, Kay
