A happy little helper.... and using his power tools.... and the Houston Quilt show!!!










Ok, its been a busy time... getting the Professor ready for school again! He is keeping very busy, and so am I, I had to share a photo of the wee one.... I took. He was helping with the vacuuming. His parents have to spell the word out...if they say vacuum, he demands that they use it...and hold him to "help" push. He is a funny little boy. Then these funny little kids were trying to get people to go to their garage sale.
I had to snap their picture .
The little "box head" was too funny. And the Professor and I are hosting a little get together for the graduate students in his program this coming weekend...so of course he decided that the deck needed to be power washed and resealed before winter...so might as well do it now. Had to snap a photo of him "playing" with his power tools.... He is so focused when he has a project that he has to get done. Of course I have been quite busy with quilts..... just finished a really fun one. A quilt totally made from Crown Royal bags. I just did interlocking circles in all of the squares and it turned out cute I thought. But I also did a couple of more involved quilts. One just glowed and was such fun to do.... I enjoyed looking at it the whole time I quilted the design. Then there was a darling little Moda quilt my friend Angela left for me to work on. I adored those colors!!! I trust you all will have a great day.... I am loading another quilt in the morning.... always something to do .... and I even have almost finished my little orphan 9 patch. Will share photos soon. OH, I almost forgot...thanks to my daughter in law... I am being given the opportunity to go to Houston Quilt Market ..... I am sOOOOOOO excited!!! Now I really have to save some of my quilt money to pick up a few little somethings while I am there.

The wee one is sooo cute! Ethan has never seen the vacuum. He has heard it once and cryed!
I love the crown royle bag! I always wondered what to do with those.

He is cute. Mine sees the vacuum and cries and clings to me until it's over. Only bonus to that is that it means someone else has to do it :)

Have fun at the Houston Quilt Market - Jealous!!

Love the quilts. How cute is wee one! Corey will kill me, but do you remember the Christmas with his blue "weeper". He was about 2 and he wore out the toy vacuum on Christmas day and cried when it quit.

Hopefully the Wee One will still love to vacuum when he's big enought to handle a real one *S*

Have a great time at Houston . . . . bring back lots of pictures.

Your quilting is so nice on that shining geometric quilt. Beautifully done! Someone should enter that in a contest.
