My weekend!

I thought I'd share my weekend with you. We spent all day Saturday and Sunday at wrestling tournaments. Both my boys play for West York Boys Club. They are doing really well since this is their first year.

Brogan is on the right....doesn't he look fierce? He lost by 2 points in this match.....

and pinned this wrestler in the first round on his second match!

Austin is on top.....he did sooo good in his match....

they were giving everything they had....

he was so close to pinning him a couple of times..
but in the end he lost by 7 points.

They both won bronze for 3rd place. Do I need to tell you how proud I am of them?!!!!

Next match is February 1st.....GO BULLDOGS!

Tennessee Waltz Quilt

Well for those that are going to do this with me here is what you will need material wise to get started. First off you need to determine if you will be using scraps that you have or if you will be getting material specifically for this. If you are going to be using scraps then all you need is 1/2 yard of material for the block backs. The material for the side strips is something you will want to get last. I never know what I want to do til the majority of the quilt is done. If you are buying material then this is what you'll need:

1/2 yard for block backs

1/4 yard for star points

1/4 yard for star centers

1/4 yard for alternating small squares

I'm going to assume that everyone has a mat and rotary cutter. I will be getting the instructions for the star blocks together this weekend and we will start on the first of February. I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do. Scraps or new material?

I've been kinda burned out on bags lately and have been thinking of making a wall hanging. My question is.....would anyone like to make one with me? I would like to do this one. Its called the Tennesse Waltz quilt. I would give instructions on how to do it and we could all work together! Let me know..........I think it would be fun!!!!

digital cameras

Can I tell you how much I dont like digital cameras? For one I never get pictures developed anymore. They are always left on my camera. And I really cannot stand the delay. When you are trying to take a picture of a moving kid that 2 to 3 sec delay kills you.

Back to Blogger Land

I feel like I have been MIA lately. Not only on blogger but in my brain as well. Ever feel that way? Just way too much to do and you start to forget things. My Grandfather passed away on Dec 30th . It was the end of a long struggle for him and I am soooo glad that he can now be free of pain. We took another 8 hour car ride down to NC over the New Years for his funeral. At least this one was kid free! My Aunt Sherrie did an amazing job with all the planning of his service. He chose to be cremated so we had a celebration of life service. I learned more about this amazing man when I was down there. Like.....he wrote poetry. AMAZING poetry. He was also incredibly romantic...he wrote poems for his lady love. He has some here. His poem "TearDrops" was read at his service. It was just simply beautiful.

Not all was sad, I got to see some of my cousins that I had not seen in years. My cousin Stacy is soooo beautiful, it was so nice to see her. I think the last time I saw her I was 15 or 16. I also got see my cousin Nicki and I finally got to meet her wife. How wonderful they both were, so kind and friendly.

Aaannnddd.......we came home with a puppy. A little Cockapoo. She is sooo cute. Like a little chocolate bear. My boys are over the moon in love with her.
I of course love having another female in the house. If only a puppy. We named her Bella and I had to get the pink bow for her hair. I think she's going to be pretty spoiled....don't you?
