This and That

My brother, Josh, came through El Paso last week on his way cross country and although his stay was short, we loved having him, his wife, Pam and his little Guy.  And naturally, when one needs a bath, they all need a bath so this is what you get. ------>

<-------As for this little monkey, I blame his father. Good job, hunnie. You wanted him to climb. You got it. Thanks. Thanks a lot.

And this is what I've been up to when I'm not trying to climb proof everything in the house.  I'm thinking of entering the quilt in a State Fair with a friend of mine. I'm still trying to figure out what design to quilt into it. Any suggestions?

And the green shrug that I have on is my first knit sweater.  The pattern called for a cardigan length but, get real, I live in El Paso. I'll be lucky if I can wear this for 2 months this winter. I was sweltering in it by the time I had a decent picture taken of myself.

And just because I think it's hilarious that he will literally fall asleep's my cute little Bear taken a snooze on the stairs. I'm building quite a collection of pictures of the strange places he falls asleep.

Slowly but surely

We've been in this house for four months so I decided, amidst all of my larger projects that I have going, that I needed a small window treatment project to be completed in an afternoon.  Sam took all three boys for a Zuki ride and I managed to get these simple curtains almost completed in their absense....imagine that :)
