” How Time Flies” really hit home this weekend :)
I was to babysit Koopa while my youngest went to a concert. He rolled in very late and stayed overnight. Slept for a good part of the day on Saturday and then ran some errands and visited a few friends. When he came back that evening, I had just started to watch “Titanic” on Netflix.
I’d forgotten how good this movie was! Well I was not sure if HE would like it but he became intriqued and ended up watching it with me and just staying over for another night. ( Breakfast is usually better here than at his house, just sayin’ :) Plus he sleeps under quilts :)
“How Time Flies” ?? I recall being in a movie theatre with his older brother and some friends of ours, watching this movie. They were in middle school! The boys were laughing at the moms and girls crying. And now here was my youngest seeing it for the first time :)
Well, Koopa got to stay over for another night and have some more porch time…
In my last post I showed Scrappy Granny’s finish and a few readers asked what was next.
Well, I had sandwiched two quilts ; one for tying and one for hand quilting. I worked on each of them for a bit, and then put them aside until I finished sewing the binding on to Scrappy Granny.
I have pulled them both back out. Awhile back I showed that I had started tying this 1857 top, but some might have missed it.
What is funny is that a Facebook memory showed up today. On August 21, 2016 I had finished the top and taken a photo.
Over the weekend I did some more tying and then finished the hand quilting on one block of the Botanical Quilt.
I really had no plan for this quilt. Audrey over at Quilty Folk often mentions letting the quilt speak to her and that is what I did. I outlined and echo quilted somewhat and then decided to just follow the musical notes a bit. I think that each block in this quilt will be treated differently.
This is from the Shenandoah Valley Botanical Album Quilt project. I have the whole pattern but just made these six big blocks and put a border on.
A BIG DEAL in regards to football happened to one of my grandsons :)
From the local newspaper….
“The goal many WPIAL high school football teams set before their seasons commence is having the opportunity to play at Heinz Field.
One local team that loves football, despite being several years younger, is getting that opportunity during halftime of the Pittsburgh Steelers and Atlanta Falcons preseason game Sunday, Aug. 20.
The Division 2 team of the Chartiers-Houston Youth Football Association – comprised of third and fourth graders – will take the stage on the North Shore to scrimmage Southmoreland. Both are members of the Washington/Greene Youth Football League.”

Happy Eclipse of the Century Day ! :)
