Summertime, and the Livin' is Easy

It's been more than a week since my last post because I was in Kansas for five days, helping care for grandchildren. These are the little people I got to "guggle" with. That's Tay's word for "snuggle."

Aesa's a happy baby.
Like all brothers, they love to tumble.
On Friday we went to Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead.  It's where kids can have a hands-on Kansas homestead farm experience.

There was panning for "gold."

Ringing those cow bells!

With my time and energies spent on guggles, kid-play, diaper changes and baths, there wasn't a whole lot of sewing going on - several buttons were sewn back onto a duvet cover; and a top for a cheerleader outfit was taken in. Also, a small garden was planted with tomatoes, basil, watermelon and a pepper. In between, Jill took time away to keep appointments and run errands. It's nice to be family, contributing and being appreciated. It was also nice to get to lunch and spend an afternoon with my blogger-friend, Carla!

Being at home is good too! (Can you tell I like it all?) I returned to two waiting parcels, and plans for some cutting and sewing. I'll have more to share soon! Linda

  1. Those little boys keep you young and, I suspect, a little fatigued. And you still managed to meet up with a blogging friend. Well done.

  7. Been catching up on your posts. I can't believe how the boys have grown. So cute and curious.
    I have used the glue binding technique one time for a quilt show quilt. It worked well. I tried blocking another quilt but it did not seem to help.
    congrats on your wins.
