Checking in...

Another week with little sewing but I did get some work done on my Chelsea bag. Almost completed... but I sewed the straps wrong so had to take it out and was 'done for the day' after that. Will try to get back to it tomorrow morning and hopefully finish it.
We went for a drive this afternoon to check out trees... my MIL gave us money towards an Aidan tree when he was born... something to plant and then take his picture in front of every year on his birthday. We didn't see anything we liked... but have seen a few online so will order it and plant it next spring... which we will probably just get 2 trees since we will need it by then. I can't remember the kind of tree DH wants for Aidan.. but it will flower in the spring, have fruits (not edible but could be made into jams) in summer and changes colors in the fall. For the second one, I like the idea of a Hazelnut tree for the front flower bed we will hopefully be expanding on next year. We'll also get some blueberry bushes, yummy!
After we hit the garden center... we went to ToysRUs and got a new bouncy/rocker for Aidan that is good up to 40 pounds. His current one is almost too small for him... a whopping 19 pounds and 14 ounces at his 6 month appointment yesterday! Then DH was hungry so we chanced having a late lunch (2:30ish) in a restaurant and Aidan was such a good boy! We had a nice relaxing meal. Gotta love that.
Tomorrow I am going to a tea for a Longerberger Breast Cancer party with an old friend. I have been going to this for the last 4 or 5 years and it should be a fun time. This year it is a tea being held in someone's perennial garden which should be an interesting change of pace. I have never been to a 'tea' before so this is something new for me.
Hopefully I will be able to post a finished picture of my Chelsea bag tomorrow....
until then, happy quilting everyone.
