Joy With my Girl

Thursday morning at 6:30 am , I sat on my porch in the cold dark....awaiting Ian and Emily.  Emily came walking from  her Uber to my patio....JOY!!!  Ian is now gone...JOY!!  She went out in the rain for take out...At first I thought she should not have gone alone without Mommy, then I realized she was quite grown up with a baby of her own.  We sewed all evening long...JOY!!  She is a rose among the thorns.

Thought I would contribute a gift to my new hallway by the mailboxes.. I made a Halloween rope mat.
Em and I at our sewing stations.  She finished a blouse for Aoife and worked on a jumper.
Meantime back in Portland, Aoife seems to enjoying her time with her Daddy xo

For a bit more space, I emptied several scrap bags into this big bin under my ironing/cutting table enabling easy access for scrap quilting....thus  holiday scrap potholders!!

Potholder backings just for fun

A visit to the country where my darlings now live.  Lynsey, Ava and Jax.
Guess  who is in charge here?!!!!  Hopefully not their pet ferret....named "Raccoon"!!!

A lovely visit with my girl. She leaves today to go home on the big airplane to her saintly husband and darling Aoife. (and dog Rosie, of course)

God Bless.

Sounds like a golden memory time.

What a sweet memory and you sound so happy. Loved ones are so key in our lives! Fun idea to have scraps at the ready for potholders.

It sounds like you had a great time and how nice that she was able to come all by herself.
