The Invasion

Grandma O'Quilts has a private sewing room with two doors that close.
It was supposed to be a dining room...couldn't bear to waste the space.
It has been mine for over 20 years.

It is the gathering place for all family and friends.

My son here...working on the broken taillight for his car,
on my sewing table..
If you will note....cough, cough, he is using my seam ripper too!!!

 Lynsey girl finishing up presents for her teachers.
She worked hard all day in my sewing room
She pasted the words onto the tags and
cut and tied the twine.
Lynsey is nine.  I can leave her to sew the potholders herself now.
So proud!!!

Lynsey is all ready to give out her teacher presents Monday.
But the boys...???
Why can't the boys be like the girls...that song was so wrong!!!!
Rex Harrison, Why Can't A Woman be like a Man

Dylan has been easier..
.Evan, the thirteen year old is most difficult.
...Jeeze Louize.
I do not care if he finishes his potholders or not...
He is in 8th grade. It is his deal.  He has two unfinished ones..
So grateful his daddy is here taking over some of the parenting with Evan.

Tomorrow morning, my girl and her man come into Charlotte early
on the red-eye from Portland, Oregon.

   I am so excited...
I am so excited
I am so excited

I see my favorite online fabric store has a 20% off sale on everything.
Just sayin'

Using your seam ripper to fix his taillight. Once my husband used my best fabric scissors to cut up a rubber inner-tube. Men!
Can't live with them, can't live without them, LOL.
I love that everyone feels comfortable in your sewing room and that sewing is a family affair.
Merry Christmas!

I wish the seam ripper was the only thing Mr. Cowboy has "accidentally" used on purpose....sigh!! Hope you all have a great Christmas!
