I've had this lil' cutie Jessica( the girl) visiting for a couple of days..........actually Butters(the pup) was visiting that day too....Tomorrow I leave to drive to Ga. to pick up my other niece Jennifer(pictures to follow I'm sure) for the week next week.
She is going to have to help me finish these little projects as I have 2 baby showers next week!
Man!! This getting pictures and the words on the page like I want them is a pain!! Surely there is an easier way!!
I've still got to get a couple of burp cloths stitched up too.....sometime. I've decided the quilt will be a gift for the NEXT shower I go to for Cillie's baby Riley.
The 2nd shower popped up unexpectedly as my friends have been trying to adopt.......well let's just say since the 1st family fell through, Karen and Tony were more than willing to take sweet little AJ home with them. It really all happened so fast! They have been real blessed with gifts and such since it all happened. I get to hold him Thursday night........think they'll notice if I sneak him out in my bag?? 8D
Okay.......I really need to go get some shut-eye.
hugs and stitches for now, Terri

Want to see one of the things I'm working on?? Here is a snippette
I'm not real great at getting these little points just right and I'm a bit weary of "unsewing" a couple of them, but this one looks the best so far. And it is the right size!! Yipeeeeeee!
Eventually all of the blocks will look like
the one with the sail boats!! Too cute huh?? I saw it an a quilt shop and knew it would be perfect for one of my best friends new grandson......I'm going to stitch his name (Riley) on one of the boats. I've also been dreaming about what sort of lable to put on the back......Please feel free to send me your ideas.....I want it to be something besides a retangle with words........
On another note....I've been thinking of putting a sign out front on my lawn.........It would read:
The Foster Home
(no vacancies at present)
Our last name is Foster.......my friends joke and call us the "Foster Home" because we are always taking someone in needing help.............
So we have a new resident again.........the last one was here about 3 weeks this past May........hummmmmmmm......
Really it's not that bad....I just have to remember to wear my robe in the mornings! Anyway.....say a prayer for this young man......he is a dear and has no family for support(parents are deceased).....He and my son Anthony are good friends and thinking of "rooming" together, but it just hasn't worked out yet.
Now I'm off to make a salad and then get back to sewing.
