We switched things up this weekend since Greg works today and we will have grandparents over tomorrow for Aidan's 12th birthday lunch. The kids are off to Grandma's today to help her pick up the yard and woods from all the branches down from the storm on Thursday. That left me time to sew late morning to get my orange fix in for the week! I think I need to fix one white triangle on 3 of them... it must have got moved when I sewed it a bit since it is a little off on the top. I do love how these are coming out.
When I make these there is one of the quarter square triangles leftover. Last month I sewed them together. Kicking myself now....as I just realized if I cut the wings from a 2 inch strip of fabrics I can make flying geese with them! Maybe I'll get back in to sew those up today..... but must do some grocery shopping and pick up the house a bit for tomorrow. Em and Greg made the requested cheesecake with raspberry topping last night. It was a long day yesterday and I was in bed at 9!... Before both kids even! All day long out in the sun and wind and cold (and someone forgot sunscreen and has a red face today!) to watch Emily and her school's soccer team compete in quick games (10 minute) against the other elementary schools in the area. We came in 3rd with a 5 games won and 1 loss. They had fun and you can tell soccer is popular here with some of the amazing skills and footwork and ball control these kids have. Then it was to school pick up line to wait and collect her from school. Home for a late light lunch - they didn't have time to eat there - then she went out and did a 2 hour cookie booth followed by dinner out to celebrate her brothers birthday.
It is cookie season - she had a 'lemon up' stand in our yard yesterday. Booths don't start until the 14th around here but we can do these stands on our residential property. The only time I am happy we live on a busy street! She unloaded all those boxes to people yesterday (minus 8 boxes!). I put in an order for 60 more boxes and she can do it again Sunday or after school next week sometime. He goal is 350 cookies this year. She hit 300 last year. She is at 131 right now with some troop booths scheduled. This is my life for the next couple of weekends!
Linking up with the RSC Challenge.
Aidan asked why my background was yellow...I told him it was orange. He disagreed so I showed him where I set it up. He managed to get a better orange background.... and decided to add hearts for valentines day. I think I will have him be in charge of the colors from now on!
