Maggie and Lizzie made her cake. It was delicious and very chocolate! There were 6 layers with a panache icing on top. Between the layers they put a light fluffy icing. Meemaw and Grandad came for dinner. It was simple...Shrimp LoMein...which was good because the cake was rich.
I snapped this picture at church on Sunday (date on picture is always wrong). I always enjoy the way our church ladies set up the table in the sanctuary.
This is Maggie's latest sushi experiment. She used canned salmon to make the topping. She is getting expert at this!
Ruthie and I enjoy sitting on my bed cutting tracing squares onto old jeans and workpants, then cutting them out. Usually I trace and Ruthie cuts. We've been collecting these workpants for a long time. They are painter's pants, camouflage hunting pants, women's pants, khakis and blue workpants.
I have no idea why my pictures are insisting on being to the left but I'll just leave them like this. I took this close-up so you can see the different colors.
I laid the squares out on my floor to try out two different patterns. I was going to sell these squares...until I saw how many are already on sale on eBay. I'll just sew these myself.
Ruthie is off the crutches and onto a special brace to keep her foot stable. Sunday night soccer at church has not been good for our family!
I found this picture in a weird spot. This was taken at the Valentine's banquet at church. My children had just finished singing and were getting ready to eat dessert. Their faces spell relief.
Sarah has been helping a family that has a set of one-year-old triplets and 2-1/2 year-old toddler. The momma had to have surgery...while the triplets ended up coming down with terrible colds that required trips to the E.R. and the doctor. Finally the triplets were doing better but the momma got an infection. The momma finally had to go back into the hospital. Fortunately the Grandma had moved in for 6 weeks until all is better. Sarah has spent the nights there as well. We've spent a lot of time praying for this family! We enjoy the pictures Sarah posts on facebook. We sure miss her!
I wish I could say winter is flying by but it actually seems to be never-ending. We're all anxious to start gardening.
If you are quilting, please write to me and let me know what you're working on. I'm looking for inspiration. Pictures welcome!
Many blessings ~ Kathie
