Wednesday.....

An early release day at school and I also get to work this morning at the store!

I seem to have issued a challenge by e-mail to a blogging friend Joanne..... to finish something by the end of November! She took me up on it and I'm going with something similar to what she selected - Finish my hand quilting on the Hugs and Kisses Quilt! I started it last Thanksgiving so it will be a year (summer off as its too hot to hand quilt!) if I actually get it done. I spent the morning yesterday watching a few episodes of season 4 of Grey's Anatomy and hand stitching. I made some good progress on the side cream border....... lets see if this can be a finished quilt at the end of next month! My next hoop move is a corner =). One side of the first border will be done. I am debating going back and doing the peels on the outer border too... and hand stitching together the edge.



I did get something done... I crocheted the tops to a couple of kitchen towels...... and Aidan added one button and Greg/Emily added the other. Emily's was put right to use in the kitchen. Aidan's will fly up to Grammy R with some others that I need to make today. I seem to have to change them out daily... and sometimes twice a day depending on how much baking/cooking is going on. Which reminds me... better put the crochet hook, yarn and cut towels in the bag for work today. =)


Other good news..... We believe Aidan made it into the gifted program at school. We have a meeting Nov 5 with the school to discuss how it works and to help them plan a challenging program for him. Hopefully that will stop the 'I'm bored, I know what she is teaching already'.

Off to work for me..... early pickup and then a free activity at the library at 2 today - pumpkin painting.

  1. Congrats to Aidan. My daughter was in the gifted program at school, but I was disappointed with it. Instead of amping up the regular coursework to stimulate her, their gifted program met for an hour a week to work on extra projects. Hopefully your school district's program will be better. I love your hand quilting!

  2. Hugs and Kisses is looking good! Some of my grandchildren are in the gifted program. Seems much better than when my boys were little. Of course there's been LOTS of years in between! My GKs are intrigued and applying their knowledge. One is currently building a scale model of the Empire State Building with Legos. He's loving the research, measuring, and mathematics.

  3. Congrats to Aidan; that is awesome! :) Keep on with the quilting and if not by the end of November for some reason surely by the end of the year! The towels are so pretty!
