Happy birthday to Sophie. She has really changed a lot this year! Now she can walk and talk and talk and talk! If she was Indian her name would be Talksalot. Last Thursday she helped me plant some flowers. She is so happy to be outside. I think she would stay outside all day. I can't wait to take her to the creek and to Kem's pool. She will be a water rat, I think.

This block was fun to do. I wish the bunny didn't have to be dark brown. Now I need to do the willow block by the end of April. The fishing will be good at the lake this month so I may not get it done by then. Oh well, got to fish when the sun shines.

Here is the first bunny for the bunny table topper I am making. I am having fun doing this. I am making the wall hanging three bunnies across and three down. This won't be done by Easter this year, but maybe for next Easter. It is fun to pick out different fabrics for the dress.

Madi I hope you have a wonderful birthday! You have always been a special person to me. I can remember your cute ways when you were a baby. I love you always and forever. You are such a big girl now, but you will always be my "special christmas present".

This is a picture of a quilt called Delectable Mountain. I am making one like it. It is going to take a lot of mountain blocks, but I really like this one. My blocks won't be so brite. I will post a picture of one of my blocks soon, if I ever get my bedroom painted!

Last week-end Jack's girls from Marshall came to visit. We all had such a good time. Bill cooked hot dogs on the grill so we had an easy meal. Jacob and the girls talked and talked! You would have thought there were fifty kids in the house. This is a picture of the girls playing with Sophie's toys, while they were waiting for Jacob to get here. Beware world, Megan now has her drivers permit! She has a beautiful picture of her on her permit. Mine always looks like a police mug shot.

My sister Julie gave a new gourd for my birthday, so I just had to showcase them! Julie made the ones on the ends and I made the one in the middle. I think they are just too cute. I am going to try to talk Bill into letting me get some chickens. Maybe I can tell him with the economy this bad we might need some eggs to go with our beans and rice! If I get tired of the chickens we can always eat them!

I know I will think different in January, but for now I am ready for Fall. Everything in the yard has taken on the look of pending doom! I am looking forward to sitting by the fireplace and doing some quilting. It has been a very busy summer even if I did kill the garden. Steve gave me some weed killer and I kind of over done it. Killed everything in my garden! My flowers did really well and looked very nice. I am working on a Christmas table topper this week. I have it pieced and am ready to start quilting it. Monday the guy comes to finish the damage on the shop, then we will be done with the tornado damage. It has been a real pain in the butt, working with the insurance company. I hope we don't have to go through this anytime again soon! Anyhow here is a picture of the front of the house.

This is the sock monkey I made for Shelby. She thought it was soft. She had seen the one I gave Sophie for her birthday, and wanted me to make her one. I told her I would make her one for her birthday. When I took it to her I ask what it that she wanted me to make her and she couldn't remember, so it was a surprise! I really don't think she was that impressed!

Yesterday was Shelby's birthday. She is now four years old. I think she is just beautiful. She is all girl, I think she thinks in pink. This picture was taken at pre-school last winter. She has changed since then. Bill and I are going to take her present to her tomorrow. I will post a picture of her and the present tomorrow.

Megan, Ellen and Madi with the purses I made for them. Not to brag but I think I did a pretty good job on them. It is always fun to make something for the ones you love. They live about four hours away now so I don't get to see them as often as I used to. I am trying to think of something to make them for Christmas. Oh! wait I just thought of something, and no Ellen I am not telling!

Naked Ladies are the only thing in my yard that I am happy about right now. Steve calls them pink ladies. The yellow poplar tree is the reason I am not happy. It is always so beautiful year after year, but this year it has a problem. Just makes me want to say a bad word or TWO!

We had a wonderful time at the creek yesterday. Sophie loves the water. She will walk right out into it and keeping going! Yesterday you could hear her take a breath and then dunk her face in the water. The current is pretty strong here so you have to keep a good hold on her. I told Abby we could just pick her up a the bridge if she got loose!
